Why the Lions can win the Super Rugby Final

 

Because no-one expects them to win.

 

The Lions’ Semi-Final win over the Waratahs places them facing the Crusaders in Christchurch will be their toughest challenge yet after losing the last two Grand Finals.

 

  • The desperate Lions are appearing in their third consecutive Super Rugby Final and will be very hungry to spring the upset win on the Crusaders.

 

  • They might get close, however, ultimately may not be good enough, nor have enjoyed the required travel rest needed to win on enemy soil against a form team and a hostile crowd.

 

Why the Crusaders can win the Super Rugby Final

 

The eight-time Super Rugby champions look poised to make it nine following a wonderful semi-final display in Christchurch over the Hurricanes. The dominant win outlines a blueprint as to how and why the Crusaders will win the title;

 

  • The defending champion Crusaders have looked unbeatable during the second half of the season recording a 14th straight victory.

 

  • The Crusaders have won all 20 home play-off matches in franchise history.

 

  • Crusaders Number 10 Mo’unga’s wonderful form in recent weeks.

 

  • The forwards are dominant and hungry after being dissed by the Coastal Sharks as ‘soft’ before that play-off game. They are now mean and aggressive.
