June Internationals 2017: Round 3 Predictions

Devin Toner

Whilst this weekend is mostly about the Lions’ 1st Test in New Zealand, there are still other International matches going on around the world.

Here are my Superbru predictions for this week, after a jump up the table last week by predicting Scotland’s victory over AustraliaRugby predictions.

Samoa v Wales
Samoa actually looked ok in the first quarter of their match against the All Blacks, before being blown away later in the game. Wales should beat them, but it will be closer than 78 points. Wales by 18.

Fiji v Scotland
This will be a different challenge for the Scots after last week’s heroics against Australia. There’s no Finn Russell for a start, and whilst I think they’ll win the game, it could get quite close. Scotland by 8.

Australia v Italy
I think the Wallabies could cut loose in this one after their defeat last week, and they should be significantly better with a couple of matches under their belts. Australia by 28.

Japan v Ireland

Ireland won last week’s meeting by 28 points, so will it be more or less than that? They scored 50 but conceded 22, so if they tighten up their defence, it could be a bigger margin. Ireland by 33.

South Africa v France
The French have been a let down in this series, losing the first two Tests by 23 and 22 points respectively. Can they make it a bit closer? South Africa by 21.

Argentina v Georgia
This should be a home win for the Pumas, with the margin depending on how much they change things up after their 2-Test series with England. Argentina by 16.

  1. So many injuries for the Welsh as seems the norm for too long, a second string would struggle but this is genuinely a 3rd string, many very young players , these games can make or break confidence , Samoa by 4;
    Scotland on a role, and finding new exciting blood , Scots by 12;
    Aussies down in the dumps but skills should be better than Italy’s Australia by 30;
    Ireland missin their Lions wont stop them rolling the Japs by 35+;
    South Africa rebuilding and startin to climb, France playing for pride tho Saffas by 16;
    Seen little of Gorrgia but was impressed , out of the air guess Argies by 20;

  2. Wales are looking very green so i expect the scoreline to be much tighter than 18 – Wales by 7
    Scotland have enough depth in their playmakers with both Horne and Jackson in the side – Scotland by 19
    Ireland about right
    Loving the France prediction if they played another 20 times would it be a draw?
    I reserve judgement on the Argie margin of victory until i see the teams but full strength they should win by 20

    1. forgot Aussies
      About right Italy have been pretty woeful and will get steamrollered by an Aussie backlash

  3. Very surprised to see Wales struggle to a narrow 2 point victory. Will be interesting to see how Scotland get on. As a Scotland fan I don’t want to make any predictions, but both sides have a good chance.
