Betting Tips

Jaguares vs Brumbies – June 28th

Tip – In the most unlikely of the two semi-finals, the Jaguares and Brumbies face off in Buenos Aires. Both teams share similar qualities; they are both in excellent form and they are attacking teams that are exciting to watch. After the two teams played an exciting 20 -15 Jaguares victory in the regular season back in April, we’re expecting a rollicking see-sawing contest that could go either way. On their home ground in front of their parochial fans, we tip the Jaguares to eek out a close win and take their place in an historic final.

Crusaders vs Hurricanes – June 29th

Tip – Of the 2 Semi Finals, the Crusaders vs Hurricanes match-up is the one that most Rugby purists would love to see as the final; two quality teams from the World’s premier Rugby competition fighting it out for the biggest prize in global domestic Rugby. There’s one small catch, this isn’t the final and one of the teams’ season will be over. Head to head results this season (Two Crusaders wins, 38-22 in February and 32-8 in March) both point towards a Crusaders victory. It seems to be clear cut and easiest to predict of the two semi-finals on paper. The Crusaders should be too tough for the Hurricanes and set up a home final.

Statistics

• The last time we were without a South African Super Rugby semi-finalist was in 2015, when the Hurricanes, Highlanders, Waratahs and Brumbies played out for the title.

• Until this year, no team from outside the SANZAR (Australia, South Africa and New Zealand) have appeared in a semi-final. Argentina’s Jaguares are the first to do so.

• 13 members of the Wellington Hurricanes side that won the Super Rugby title in 2016 remain in the team, critical experience at this time of year.

• If the Canterbury Crusaders go on to defend their title, they will repeat their 1998-1999-2000 hat-trick and retain their record of being the only side to win a hat-trick of Super Rugby titles.

• The only other Super Rugby franchises to win at least two titles in a row are; the Auckland Blues 1996-1997, the Crusaders again in 2005-2006, South Africa’s Bulls in 2009-2010 and the Waikato Chiefs in 2012-2013.
