Super Rugby 2018 – Week 12 Previews, Form Guide, Tips & Predictions
- Week 12 Bye
- 12 May 2018 – Week 13 vs Rebels in Canberra.
The Brumbies were brave going down to a 21-8 defeat to the reigning Super Rugby Champions, the Canterbury Crusaders, on the weekend. However, the Brumbies have discovered that they simply may not be good enough this year and may already be planning for 2019.
The week off will help, however, they appear undermanned in taking on the very best Kiwi and South African opposition.
- Week 12 Bye
- 12 May 2018 – Week 13 vs Sunwolves in Tokyo.
Brad Thorn’s men will relish a week-off after their incredible 27-22 upset over South Africa’s Golden Lions. With the win, the Queensland Reds have shown they’re made of stern stuff to take on the best teams in the competition. It was a very different Reds team to the one that lost four straight after a 3-1 start to the season. Coach Thorn’s side was engaged from the opening whistle. However, the question remains – can they keep this up on a consistent basis?
- 05 May 2018 – vs Auckland Blues, Sydney – Waratahs Win Odds $2.20
Australian teams have a dismal 36-0 losing streak against their New Zealand rivals, but the Waratahs have a wonderful chance to end that dreadful statistic this coming weekend in Sydney. The Auckland Blues are injury ravaged and Tana Umaga’s young side are playing high school kids in their line-up as reserves. The Waratahs will never have a better chance to end the drought.
- 04 May 2018 vs Crusaders, Melbourne – Rebels Win Odds $2.90
The Rebels have been great this year, but if they beat the Crusaders in Melbourne this coming weekend, it will be a major upset. Honestly, we give them no chance.
