The main event of the Super Rugby calendar is upon us, and I can’t wait to see the outcome of what could be a cracking finale!
Chiefs vs Brumbies
The final no-one saw coming, both underdogs in their semi-final clashes, and both defied the odds to reach the final. We’ve seen it all too often how travel can virtually end a teams chances, and that is what the Brumbies will have to overcome, after travelling from Australia to South Africa, they now have made the trip to New Zealand less than a week later. With that in mind the Chiefs will be clear favourites, and the only thing that could be their downfall is if all the writing off of the Brumbies makes them complacent, it is a final though, and because of that I cannot see that happening. Reckon the Chiefs will retain their Super Rugby crown pretty easily on Saturday.
Prediction: Chiefs by 18
Lastly a quick thanks to the readers that followed my previews week after week (no matter how bad my picks got) I really do appreciate it!
