SuperRugby round 9 - preview

WRITTEN BY THE EDITOR ON APRIL 19, 2017. POSTED IN SPORTS

Round 9, yup, we are already that far into the tournament. Just the one unbeaten team left now, the Crusaders, as the Stormers gotten beaten by the Lions last week.

Fitting then that the Crusaders and Stormers square off this week. The Cape team start a tough tour with this game, a tour that may give us a better idea of how good Robbie Fleck's young team really is.

Looking like a home clean sweep this weekend, excep the Chiefs game. On paper they are heavy favourites, but after a tough travel schedule, that margin could be a little tighter than expected versus the Force.

@SlangSteyn is the player at top right now, and with another relatively straight forward weekend ahead outcome wise (you would think), the emphasis is again on those margins.

Best of luck!
