Super Rugby Predictions 2011: Round 6

Here are my SuperBru predictions for round 6 of Super Rugby – let me know what you think.

In the opening match, the Rebels are back at home where they are much stronger than on the road, but I’m finding it hard to back them this season, and I’m leaning towards the ‘Canes.

The Chiefs against the Blues is a tough one to call, but I’m backing the Chiefs, who are yet to lose at home, and whose confidence should be high after last week’s win over the Sharks.

The Brumbies v Waratahs is a coin toss frankly, after the Tahs lost to the Cheetahs and the Brumbies were smashed by the Crusaders – I’ve gone for a narrow away win though.

Elsewhere, I’m backing the Reds, the Stormers and the Bulls, whilst I expect the Crusaders to win at Twickenham against the Sharks in what should be a memorable day.

Rebels v Hurricanes: Hurricanes by 8
Reds v Cheetahs: Reds by 10
Chiefs v Blues: Chiefs by 6
Brumbies v Waratahs: Waratahs by 5
Stormers v Force: Stormers by 13
Bulls v Lions: Bulls by 15
Crusaders v Sharks: Crusaders by 11
