Super Rugby Round 9 Preview

6 out of 7 for me last week, and I would have had a full house if it wasn’t for the Draw which, lets face it, is unpredictable. So lets hope this weekend I can go 1 better.



Highlanders vs Brumbies

Highlanders have been terrible the whole season, while the Brumbies have headed in the same direction in their past few matches, so who do I think is more likely to come right? The team with Jake White coaching them that’s who.

Prediction: Brumbies by 6

Chiefs vs Reds

Chiefs are fresh off a bye and will be hungry to get straight back on the horse, and I am confident will do it here without much trouble.

Prediction: Chiefs by 13

Blues vs Hurricanes

This is a toughie, but I just feel that the Canes have been a little bit better than the Blues these past few weeks, even with the Blues having home advantage.

Prediction: Hurricanes by 6

Melbourne Rebels vs Southern Kings

Kings have proved week in and week out now that they are a team to take seriously, and after their draw vs Brumbies, you can’t not pick them here.

Prediction: Kings by 6

Western Force vs Crusaders

Not a hard pick here, go with Saders and then move on to the next one.

Prediction: Crusaders by 9

Stormers vs Sharks

This injury ravished Stormers side is one of the worst teams in the whole competition, and seeing as they haven’t got any of their players back, going Sharks here.

Prediction: Sharks by 6

Bulls vs Cheetahs

I can’t stress enough how good the Cheetahs have been, but they have to lose sometime, and I reckon this Bulls team fresh off a bye, with the style of rugby they play, will come out on top here.

Prediction: Bulls by 6

Waratahs are the only team that gets to enjoy a bye this weekend.
