Statistics The Lions have scored the most points in Super Rugby in 2019 and the Brumbies home defensive record is in the Top 5. The Crusaders have the second-best defence in Super Rugby and 2019. Look for the Highlanders to held to a low score. The Sharks are Super Rugby defence leaders in 2019 and will be tight-fisted and not give away many points against the freewheeling Jaguares. The Waikato Chiefs hold the head-to-head edge over the Auckland Blues, with 15 wins to the Blues 10 wins in 25 Super Rugby matches.
