Super Rugby Predictions 2017: Round 17

Sharks Rugby

Reds v Brumbies
The Brumbies have won the last 5 matches between these two – by an average of 25 points – and seven of the last 8. You’d expect the Brumbies to win this one too as they prepare to represent Australia in the playoffs. Brumbies by 13.

Force v Rebels
The Rebels have the better record in this fixture, but have been dire this season and this should be a home win. Force by 11.

Waratahs v Jaguares
The Jaguares should be a lot better than they are, given the international makeup of their team, but in their last 8 matches (including 5 at home), they’ve only beaten the Sunwolves. Waratahs by 16.

Bulls v Kings
Not many people picked a win for either of these teams last weekend, away at the Sharks and Jaguares respectively. The Bulls should have too much at Loftus, and the travel won’t help the Kings. Bulls by 18.

Stormers v Sunwolves
An 87-point drubbing by the Lions last weekend won’t have done much for Sunwolves’ morale, and this could be another long afternoon in Cape Town. Stormers by 58.

  1. Am I missing something. According to the fixtures list Round 17 has Highlanders vs Reds, Rebels vs Jaguares and Kings vs Cheetahs.
    Totally different from the predictions?
