Super Rugby Round 20 Preview

It has been a great year for me personally being a Southern Kings fan and being able to see Super Rugby action live week after week. It’s sad to see it come to an end, but hopefully they will be back next year by defeating the Lions in the playoff matches. Right do I have one final perfect round in me? It’s a super tough round, but let’s hope so.

Crusaders vs Hurricanes

Crusaders are on a roll, and I can’t see them falling short here against an out of sorts Hurricanes side.

Prediction: Crusaders by 21

Melbourne Rebels vs Highlanders
Tough pick because the Highlanders seem to have gotten themselves right a bit since the break, going with the home side here though to win it, and win it well.

Prediction: Rebels by 14

Blues vs Chiefs

Blues hopes of qualifying are over, and because of that I see a less than impressive performance coming up from them this week.

Prediction: Chiefs by 13

Western Force vs Brumbies

While it might be tough travelling to Perth and getting the win, I am sure by the end of the 80 the Brumbies will have done enough.

Prediction: Brumbies by 10

Waratahs vs Reds

Probably the toughest pick of the weekend, flip a coin for this one because it could go either way.

Prediction: Waratahs by 6

Sharks vs Southern Kings

Kings have rested a lot of players ahead of their playoff against the Lions, so I see a hammering on the cards here.

Prediction: Sharks by 51

Stormers vs Bulls
Bulls chances of claiming the title will be hugely affected by the result of this game, but unfortunately I don’t see this one going their way

Prediction: Stormers by 6

The Cheetahs get to enjoy a nice break before the playoffs.
