Super Rugby Predictions 2017: Round 9


We’re still riding high in most Superbru pools, despite a couple of upsets recently, and this weekend looks relatively straightforward.

Hurricanes v Brumbies
You can’t lose to the Rebels and then beat the Canes away from home. Hurricanes by 23.

Waratahs v Kings
A late flurry of tries flattered the scoreline for the Kings last weekend, and the Waratahs should be stronger than the Reds. Waratahs by 28.

Lions v Jaguares
The Lions should avenge their only defeat of the season so far, and are looking like title contenders. Lions by 21

Highlanders v Sunwolves
This is only going one way, another home win. Highlanders by 43

Crusaders v Stormers
The Stormers set off on a tough tour, facing the Crusaders, Highlanders and Hurricanes in consecutive weeks. I suspect it won’t get off to a great start. Crusaders by 18.

Force v Chiefs
This should be straightforward enough for the Chiefs as they stop off on their way home. Chiefs by 16.

Bulls v Cheetahs
Neither side is having a good season, so let’s go with home advantage. Bulls by 4

Sharks v Rebels
A first win of the season for the Rebels last week, but the home side should win this fairly easily. Sharks by 18.

    1. Snap! Some tough calls getting the scores in the right place. The ‘Canes average 50 points per game@ home (for) and only 16 against. The Brumbies average 19 points per game away and only 16 (against).
