SuperRugby round 12 - preview

WRITTEN BY THE EDITOR ON MAY 11, 2017. POSTED IN SPORTS

Last weekend was a little too predictable prediction wise. Grand Slam Points all over the place on SuperBru, but this week is going to be a different story.

The Stormers get to stem the misery of a tough fixture list, otherwise they are some very interesting matches to enjoy.

 

FRIDAY

Blues vs Cheetahs 09:35

The Cheetahs came up short against New Zealand opposition at home the last two weeks. Looking certainly to happen again now over there.

Brumbies vs Lions 11:45

The Lions are aiming for a clean sweep of the Aussies, but the Brumbies are capable of an upset here. On paper and even form you have to pick the Lions, but I have a feeling a clinical Brumbies will show up on Friday, and strangle out a tight win.

 

SATURDAY

Crusaders vs Hurricans 09:35

The big clash of the weekend. The unbeaten Crusaders have to slip up at some stage, and the Hurricanes are the kind of team to help them do that. You don't want to miss this one live, and I reckon the Hurricanes will take it. Just.

Rebels vs Reds 11:45

A missable Aussie derby, Reds to edge it.

Bulls vs Highlanders 15:05

The Bulls are in a mess right now, and the Highlanders aren't exactly going to go easy on them. Nollis Marais has made many changes to this week's run on team, but a change in result is a little too much to expect.

Kings vs Sharks 17:15

Kings are hoping for a big crowd in P.E, and an even bigger performance against old foes the Sharks. This game was tight recently in Durban, but I think the Sharks will show some extra class to grab the win.

Jaguares vs Force 23:40

When will the Jaguares put a big score on the board? Are they a big score on the board kind of team? Well I think this is the week for it, the Force to take a decent loss here.

 

Now for the predictions.

@Rentia leads the way at the moment, but with a tougher weekend of fixtures to call, there is huge potential for a shake up here!
