Super Rugby Predictions 2011: Round 8

Super RugbyHere are my Super Rugby predictions for Round 8 – can we have a full-house please?

Home advantage is playing a key role in my thinking this weekend, and I’m tipping five home wins out of the weekend’s six fixtures.

The Force, however, are yet to win at home this season, and I think the Waratahs will have a little too much for them. I am backing the Brumbies to end their barren run with a win over the Highlanders who are also struggling this season.

Elsewhere, wins for the Highlanders, Crusaders, Stormers and Sharks will hopefully bag me some SuperBru points. Let me know what you think.

Highlanders v Cheetahs: Highlanders by 23
Crusaders v Bulls: Crusaders by 13
Brumbies v Hurricanes: Brumbies by 8
Force v Waratahs: Waratahs by 5
Stormers v Reds: Stormers by 12
Sharks v Lions: Sharks by 19
