It is coming to the time when I need to make my SuperBru predictions for the Second Test tomorrow, so I’m hoping for a bit of help from readers of The Rugby Blog.
I am always optimistic about big games like this, which doesn’t necessarily bode well for a predictions competition. However, I do feel that there are reasons to be hopeful about tomorrow’s game.
The odds are probably stacked against the tourists, and yes, South Africa hardly ever lose in Pretoria, but Ian McGeechan will have learned a lot from last week’s game of two halves, and I’m backing the master tactician to square the series.
So I’m probably going to pick the Lions to win, with a reasonable amount of patriotic influence, but by how many? 5?
What are your predictions for the game?
