Crusaders vs Reds
Crusaders by 14
The Crusaders are fresh off a bye, and should trounce a Reds side that despite improving, is still not close to the New Zealanders.
Brumbies vs Bulls
Bulls by 3
A brave call perhaps, but the Bulls are in good form and spirit, while the Brumbies were hammered in their last two encounters and are in the midst of some nasty boardroom politics that might prove distracting.
Sunwolves vs Force
Force by 1
The Force have had several near misses this season so far, but despite the Sunwolves securing their first win a fortnight ago, the Force should narrowly sneak it.
Chiefs vs Highlanders
Chiefs by 3
Easily the game of the weekend, both sides have generally been a step above the rest this season. The Chiefs will likely make the most of their home ground advantage and a superior pack should set them up for a narrow victory.
Waratahs vs Cheetahs
Waratahs by 17
The Waratahs have regained some of their mojo in their narrow win against the Stormers, and should find the going easy against a Cheetahs side that is still struggling heavily on defense.
Sharks vs Hurricanes
Hurricanes by 13
The Sharks will be glad to be back in Durban, but their third New Zealand fixture in as many weeks will take its toll on Saturday. The Hurricanes started their tour off by putting 50 points against the inform Lions, and despite the defensive nature of the Sharks, they should win comfortably.
Kings vs Blues
Blues by 24
The Kings have struggled in recent weeks (even more so than usual), and after leaking more than 70 points in Argentina, expect the Blues to win comfortably.
