Super Rugby 2018 – Week 17 Previews, Form Guide, Tips & Predictions
- 30 June 2018 – vs Hurricanes in Canberra – Brumbies Win Odds $4.00
The Brumbies return home to Canberra with the opportunity to take on the second-placed side in Super Rugby, the Wellington Hurricanes. With nothing-to-lose and plenty-to-gain as players enter contract negotiations for the 2019 season, look for the Brumbies to push the Hurricanes all-the-way.
- 29 June 2018 – vs Auckland Blues in NZ – Reds Win Odds $3.55
During the international break, tough-as-granite QLD Reds coach Brad Thorn insisted that his team kept themselves match-fit by turning out in QLD Premier Rugby fixtures. As a former All Black himself, Thorn is well aware what it takes to compete with New Zealand sides on-a-regular-basis, as the Reds prepare to visit Eden Park to take on the Auckland Blues.
- 29 June 2018 – vs Rebels in Melbourne – Waratahs Win Odds $1.65
The Waratahs may take some time to click against the Rebels in Melbourne after the international break this coming Saturday as they look to get their Super Rugby finals chances back on track. Their combinations may prove to be rusty with so many players returning from Wallaby duties but they should prove too strong for the Rebels.
- 29 June 2018 – vs Waratahs in Melbourne
Can the Rebels taste a win over the Waratahs? History, form and injuries (the Rebels have lost Wallabies half Will Genia for the season after he was king hit in the second test against Ireland) suggest otherwise.
The smart money might be on the Rebels to cover the 1-12 point spread at $4.20. or if you think that the Waratahs will be FAR too potent, there are good $3.80 odds for the Waratahs to win by 13 or more points.
