Overall Record: 40-34
Last Week: 4-3
Chiefs vs Blues
Quite frankly I have been a lot more impressed with the Blues than I have been with the Chiefs lately, and with the home side once again shuffling their team, I am happy to take a risk and go for the Blues here.
Prediction: Blues by 6
Rebels vs Hurricanes
Still consider the Rebels a very good side at home, but are they good enough to topple the Hurricanes? I believe so.
Prediction: Rebels by 6
Highlanders vs Lions
Can only see one winner here, lions have lost the plot and are in for a very tough tour.
Prediction: Highlanders by 17
Brumbies vs Sharks
Sharks were lucky to win their first game on tour, but I foresee their luck running out against a very good Brumbies side.
Prediction: Brumbies by 9
Cheetahs vs Force
Went back and forth trying to decide between these two, but when it comes down to it, the Force have been a much more consistent side, and have played better rugby throughout.
Prediction: Force by 7
Bulls vs Stormers
How do you separate these two? Simple really, LOFTUS will make all the difference and will help hand the Bulls a valuable 4 points.
Prediction: Bulls by 8
Reds vs Crusaders
Haven’t had a Sunday morning game in a while, but will it help turn around the Reds fortunes this season? I doubt it, Crusaders have been too good lately.
Prediction: Crusaders by 12
Waratahs have the bye this week.
