Last week i got all my predictions wrong, the teams that surprised me were the Bulls and the Kings. Both these teams were playing away from home, Bulls were in Durban and the Kings travelled to Argentina. They pulled off unlikely victories.
This weekend we have five matches, two on Friday and three on Saturday. First game is the Reds hosting the Brumbies at Suncorp Stadium. Australian teams had a bye last weekend after the International break.
Aussie Derbies are difficult to call, Brumbies are leading the Aussie Conference but you cant write off the Queenslanders at home. Reds havent beaten the Brumbies since 2014

Jaguares travel to Sydney, Australia to take on the New South Wales Waratahs.
Its been a tough 2017 season for Gibson’s men. Both teams have lost to the Southern Kings on home soil.
Keep in mind: Waratahs haven’t played in four week.
Benefit of the doubt on home soil

After beating the Sharks last weekend, Blue Bulls will take some positives going into Saturdays clash against the Southern Kings. Kings travelling back from Argentina might give the Bulls the edge, in the last 20 to 15 minutes.
