Super Rugby Round 8 Preview

Another solid 5/7 for me last week. Still looking for my first full house, hopefully this will be the week.



Blues vs Highlanders

I see Blues being a lot better this week, and Highlanders to remain the same as they’ve been this whole season.

Prediction: Blues by 21

Brumbies vs Southern Kings

On top of all their injuries the Kings have made wholesale changes for this one, and therefore won’t be nearly as competitive as they have been. A real hammering in store for the Kings.

Prediction: Brumbies by 51

Sharks vs Crusaders

Sharks will win the battle of the forwards and therefore should win the match.

Prediction: Sharks by 6

Hurricanes vs Waratahs

Hurricanes are simply a better team and so they should win this one comfortably.

Prediction: Hurricanes by 10

Western Force vs Melbourne Rebels

If Rebels can have the 1st half they were having at the start of the season, then they should have enough to pull off a win.

Prediction: Rebels by 6

Cheetahs vs Stormers

Stormers are mighty average this season, and Cheetahs are on an all time high. Backing the home team with momentum on their side for this one.

Prediction: Cheetahs by 6

Chiefs, Reds, and Bulls have byes this weekend.
