With no South African teams playing this week our attention swings to that of the Australasian contingent, there are five games on offer, a Friday game, three Saturday games and a Sunday fixture in Aussie.
I am spending 6.75 units and the biggest play is first up at just 3 units.
Don’t forget the Sevens is on this weekend in England and the U20 Game Day Two is on Sunday, Springboks play Wales in Washington DC at 23h00 GMT +2 on Saturday, there is loads on tow keep us busy this weekend!!
Enjoy the rugby!!
Highlanders v Hurricanes
Best bet of the weekend by a decent margin, Hurricanes have certainly disappoi9nted recently and this week should be no different, the Highlanders have had a great record at home for some time now and I expect them to win this one at a decent price. Call: Highlanders on the board at 17/10 for 3 units
Blues v Rebels
Blues should have no trouble disposing of this Rebels team, I will be surprised if the Rebels stay within fifteen, here, given the rubbish season the Blues have had I would be forgiven for not going max here, but seriously I have not done that well with the Blues and will go for them one more time at a smaller stake. Call: Blues -8.5 at 2 units
Chiefs v Crusaders
Chiefs played well last week, they knew their bonus point situation and played to it, I like them against a not so in form Crusaders outfit, with a decent 5 or six point start they also appear value, but for me I will have a go on the board. Call: Chiefs on the board at 2/1 for a unit
Reds v Waratahs
Reds did ok last week, the Waratahs ill decision making at the end cost me, I like the reds at home albeit a small stake, at 2/1 to win the game they appear to be value. Call: Reds on the board at 2/1 for a 0.5 unit
Brumbies v Sunwolves
Not much to say here but that the rubbish Sunwolves B team could be smashed by fifty, but the A team could stay within ten, I may make a bigger decision closer to GT but right now, my call is low. Call: Sunwolves +31.5 at 0.25 units
