Super Rugby Round 14 Preview

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.
