The Joy of Six

There are only 7 Super Rugby matches for Round 6 this weekend – with these 4 teams getting byes – BrumbiesJaguaresKingsSunwolves

Under pressure Rebels travel to play the Highlanders and will return with no more points than they set off with! Highlanders by 17

Blues take on another Australian franchise that are worried about next season – the Force will go home with nothing. Blues by 13

The Chiefs are at home to the Bulls. Another home win. Chiefs by 21

The Reds will get no joy when the Hurricanes visit. Reds to go down by 26

Over in South Africa the Stormers take on the Cheetahs and will scrape home by less than 10

A home win for the Lions over the Sharks – but again by less than 10

The table topping Crusaders go to the Waratahs and will stay there courtesy of their 6th win on the bounce. Crusaders by 13.

If I’m right New Zealand will be celebrating and Australia licking their wounds.

The under pressure Australian franchises are naturally worried about their Super Rugby status next season so much so they have started a petition and are considering a player strike over the rumoured changes –

I don’t know about Australia, but over here online petitions mostly turn out not to be worth the paper they’re not written on!
