Super Rugby Round 18 Preview

Super Rugby graces our screens once again this weekend, and with the teams, and predictors fresh after the break, the final stretch of the competition will hopefully be a good one for myself. Now without further delay, let me get to the picks.



Chiefs vs Hurricanes

Chiefs line-up looks stronger, and playing at home should end any chance of the Canes pulling off an upset against the defending champs.

Prediction: Chiefs by 11

Highlanders vs Crusaders

A thought has crossed my mind when it comes to this match, and that is, what if Landers return from the break as the team we all expected them to be at the start of the season? If this does happen, my pick might be in danger, but you can’t predict ‘what ifs’

Prediction: Crusaders by 21

Sharks vs Blues

Hoping the Sharks will end their season on a high note, starting with this match in front of their home fans, who could really use a win.

Prediction: Sharks by 6

Bulls vs Southern Kings

All the hype and excitement of the Kings first season in Super Rugby has calmed down now, and because of this I don’t see them ending the season strongly at all.

Prediction: Bulls by 28

Stormers vs Cheetahs

This really is a 50/50 call, but I’ve always said “when in doubt, go with the home team” so backing Stormers to take this one.

Prediction: Stormers by 9

No Aussie sides in the mix this week because of the Lions tour still being underway.
