Super Rugby action continues this week with two games on Friday and six on Saturday. 


The first game is between the Western Cape side the Stormers travelling to Wellington. The Stormers (on tour) have conceded just over 100 points in their two previous fixtures in New Zealand. You have to feel sorry for them considering, they started this season like a house on fire. Unfortunately Friday Night in Wellington will be O and 3 for the Stormers, Canes to win by 15. Kick-off Friday 09:35 CAT

The next match takes place in Bloemfontein, where Cheetahs host the New Zealand, South Island side, the Highlanders. It’s difficult to call this game, as the Cheetahs are unpredictable when they face NZ sides at home. But the Highlanders will be high on confidence after putting 50 against one of South Africa’s strongest sides in the competition. Highlanders by 10 – Kick-Off: Friday 19:00 CAT

Rebels take on the Lions on Saturday. Rebels had a mediocre tour of South Africa, drawing level with the Sharks and losing by 40 against the Kings. They will be weary of the Africa Conference Leaders, the Lions. The Gauteng side on the other hand would want to make it two from two on tour. Lions by 8 , Kick-Off: 07:00am CAT 

Queensland Reds travel to Yarrow Park to take on a very strong Chiefs side on Saturday. This game will see Waikato Second-Five, Charlie Ngatai make his comeback to Super Rugby. It’s been a year since Ngatai pulled on a Chiefs jersey. The midfielder has been missing since May 2016, where he sustained a knock vs the Highlanders. Chiefs by 15, Kick-Off: 09:35am CAT

Waratahs vs Blues : Kick-Off 11:45CAT

Australian sides haven’t beaten any New Zealand teams in this years Super Rugby Season. Waratahs have a good record against the Blues on home soil, but in this years Super Rugby season, one can’t be too sure. Looking at their (Waratahs) form in recent weeks, I’ll put my money on the Blues scraping through on this one. Blues by 3 

Sharks vs Force : Kick-Off 15:05 CAT

The return of Patrick Lambie on the bench, should bolster Du Preez’s Sharks side, as they look to put pressure Conference Leaders, the Lions. The home side should win this game, it will be closer than many think. Sharks by 5


Bulls vs Crusaders, Kick-Off: 17:15 CAT

Last time these two sides met at Loftus, the Bulls were 31 – 19 victors over the 7 time SR Champions. Crusaders current form is nothing short of amazing, being the only unbetaten side in the tournament after 10 Rounds of Super Footy. Bulls struggled against Jaguars and Sunwolves on home soil, I don’t see them troubling the Crusaders.  Crusaders by 10 

Jaguares vs Sunwolves, Kick-Off: 23:40 CAT

Jaguares are a different outfit at home. It’s their chance to win with a bonus point.  I don’t see them losing this one. Jaguares by 15
