Well done the mighty Otago Highlanders. Big congratulations to our southern cousins on bringing the Super Rugby Cup back to the Mainland! The Highlanders’ victory is due to more than their outstanding play in the Super Rugby final against the Hurricanes on Saturday night, this entire season has been the tale of the underdog.
Perseverance Pays Off
They most certainly did. After playing on champion form for most of the season, the Hurricanes were the early favourites. Pre-season, the TAB were paying $12 for the Hurricanes to win the title, while the Highlanders were out at $26. Going into the 2015 Super Rugby final the odds against the Highlanders were 2 to 1.
In a post-match interview, Aaron Smith said, “We’ve proved everyone wrong.” While rugby commentator Phil Gifford has gone on to describe the Highlanders’ victory as “the greatest Super Rugby comeback this century.”
So what conclusions can we draw from the Highlanders’ Super Rugby season, and Heat Pumps NOW?
The Highlanders were not a team of champions, rather they are a champion team. The guys like prop Josh Hohneck, lock Alex Ainsley, or no. 8 Nasi Manu were not defeatist about their team’s track record. The players in that victorious team were chosen at the beginning of the season because they were pumped and hungry for victory.
Prove Why - Look up. Get Up.
Heat Pumps NOW like the Highlanders?
During the 2015 final, the Highlanders’ teamwork out the field was excellent. Their passing was on point, and their tackles always found their man. As a team they nailed the basics and kept hammering them home all the way over the line.
Just like the mighty Highlanders, the team at Heat Pumps NOW aren’t show ponies. Heat Pumps NOW are accredited experts at installing heat pumps. We arrive onsite when we say we will. When Heat Pumps NOW offer a quote to a customer, we stick to it. We keep our customers updated with the status of their installation, until it’s completed to the highest possible standard. Once we’ve totally cleaned up after ourselves, then and only then do we consider leaving. Though if you would like a Heat Pumps NOW team member to stay behind and give you a quick tutorial on how to use your heat pump, we are more than happy to do so.
Also like the Highlanders, Heat Pumps NOW nail the basics and reach levels of customer satisfaction that many of the bigger, and better established players in the heat pumps industry only dream of. All members of Heat Pumps NOW work to support each other. We look after our team and recognize that we can only do what we do with the support of those around us. Heat Pumps NOW’s strength, like the Highlanders, comes from our teamwork, and commitment to each other, which drives us to success after success.
Heat Pumps NOW Still Loyal Cantabrians
The Highlanders’ victory was not a fluke. Far from it. Under the trusted leadership of Joseph and Brown we can expect bigger and brighter things from this team, and a spirited Super Rugby title defence next season. Heat Pumps NOW may still be the underdogs in the wider Christchurch heat pumps industry. But, we will continue to hammer home the basics of heat pump installation, keep paying it forward within our Christchurch community, and keep the spirit of the underdog alive.
