The Grand Slam Point keeps alluding me week in and week out, but I won’t stop until a perfect round of predicting is mine… hopefully this will be the week it happens *holding thumbs*
Hurricanes vs Chiefs
Canes making the trip back to NZ and going up against a Chiefs side that, while not looking all that good, manage to keep hanging on and pulling off the win week after week. Going against the home team here.
Prediction: Chiefs by 10
Melbourne Rebels vs Stormers
Rebels have come so close to a win numerous times this season and you feel they have to get over the line again soon, this game however I don’t think they will, Stormers coming off a loss to the Tahs yes, but let’s face it, Rebels are no Waratahs.
Prediction: Stormers by 7
Western Force vs Sharks
I say this every week, but Sharks have to get a win from somewhere sometime, will this be the game they do? I certainly hope so.
Prediction: Sharks by 1
Crusaders vs Blues
Has the makings of a real cracker this one, both teams can produce brilliance at their best, which side will do it this weekend? I’m thinking the home team!
Prediction: Crusaders by 13
Waratahs vs Brumbies
Real tough call here, Tahs have proved themselves these past few weeks, but Jake’s men who are fresh off a bye will find a way to win this one I feel.
Prediction: Brumbies by 2
Bulls vs Highlanders
Fresh Bulls team up against the worst team in Super Rugby this year…. yeah this could be bad for the Landers.
Prediction: Bulls by 60
Cheetahs vs Reds
Tough to pick the Cheetahs here because their defence seemed to go back to the way it used to be vs Canes last week… I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt and believe it was just a bad game, but hope they return to the team we’ve become used to seeing this season very soon.
Prediction: Cheetahs by 3
Southern Kings will enjoy a bye and the 4 points that come along with it this week.
