Super Rugby Predictions 2017: Round 16

Sharks Rugby

Super Rugby returns this weekend, but without the Australian and New Zealand teams, there are only four matches to contend with – here are my predictions.

Sharks v Bulls
The Sharks have only won 1 of the last 7 meetings between the two sides, but they are having a much better season than the lowly Bulls and should win this at home. Sharks by 13.

Jaguares v Kings
The Kings have had a good season, but I can’t see them winning in Buenos Aires. Jaguares by 18.

Cheetahs v Stormers
The Stormers have only won two away matches all season – against the Kings and Sunwolves – but I would expect them to win this one in Bloemfontein as they try to find some form ahead of the playoffs. Stormers by 6.

Lions v Sunwolves
The Lions are pushing for a home draw in the playoffs, and anything less than a bonus point win here will be a disappointment. Lions by 28.
