Super 14 Predictions 2010: Round 5

There are some exciting fixtures in this weekend’s Super 14 matches, and here are my predictions for Round 5.

The round kicks off with a great prospect as the Chiefs host the Crusaders. Both teams have lost just one game so far, and this will be a tight game between two of last year’s semi-finalists. Home advantage means that I’m leaning towards the Chiefs, but it will be close.

The Stormers host the Hurricanes in what should be another hard-fought affair, but after their confidence-boosting win last week, I’m backing the Cape Town side to beat a ‘canes team that lost to the Cheetahs last week.

The other fixtures look slightly more clear cut, but you never know! Here are my picks for Round 5 of the Super 14 2010:

Game 28: Chiefs v Crusaders: Chiefs by 5
Game 29: Waratahs v Lions: Waratahs by 25
Game 30: Brumbies v Sharks: Brumbies by 11
Game 31: Bulls v Highlanders: Bulls by 21
Game 32: Stormers v Hurricanes: Stormers by 6
Game 33: Reds v Force: Reds by 8
