Super Rugby 2018 – Week 14 Previews, Form Guide, Tips & Predictions
by Ken Edwards, 14 May 2018.
- 19 May 2018 – vs Golden Lions in Johannesburg – Brumbies Win Odds $6.00
According to many, the Brumbies reached their lowest ebb ever with the loss to the Rebels at home in front of the smallest Super Rugby crowd ever at Canberra. Which is precisely why they could spring an upset win on the road over the Lions in South Africa. Quite simply put, the only way is up for the Brumbies.
- 18 May 2018 – vs Hurricanes in Wellington – Reds Win Odds $15.00
This week we will see the true test of exactly how far Brad Thorn’s young developing Reds team have come. They won’t win against the table-topping Hurricanes but it will be interesting to watch the Reds take up the challenge. Still, a bet on the Reds to get within 12 points of the Hurricanes at $13.00 might be worth your while.
- 19 May 2018 – vs Highlanders, AMI Stadium, Christchurch, NZ – Waratahs Win Odds $2.75
Can the Waratahs break the curse of the Australian teams’ extra-long drought without a victory over the New Zealand teams in this week’s match against the Highlanders? They blew that opportunity in Christchurch last weekend against the Crusaders, letting slip the biggest lead overcome in Super Rugby history. They will be looking to atone with a win.
- Week 14 Bye
- Week 15 – 25 May 2018 vs Sunwolves in Melbourne
The Rebels know they still have a mountain of work to do, however, will have been buoyed and will enjoy their week off after their surprise win over the Brumbies in Canberra. The win kept them in touch with the conference leading Waratahs, only 1 point back.
