Highlanders vs Sharks
Highlanders by 10
The Sharks struggled in their first match on tour against the Blues, and a fresh Highlanders side should put them to the sword, especially with the return of Ben Smith at the back.
Rebels vs Cheetahs
Rebels by 5
Both are terribly inconsistent, but despite the Cheetahs coming off a high scoring win against the Sunwolves they should lose in their first match on tour.
Hurricanes vs Chiefs
Hurricanes by 3
The premier match of the weekend, the Hurricanes’ strong form should see them come out on top against a Chiefs side that might be a bit rusty after a week off.
Sunwolves vs Jaguares
Jaguares by 12
The Jaguares have failed to live up to expectations this season but the Sunwolves have been appalling in recent weeks. An easy win for the Argentinians.
Force vs Waratahs
Waratahs by 2
The Waratahs are experiencing one of their worst seasons in some time but should still have enough to see off an average Force side.
Stormers vs Reds
Stormers by 8
The Reds struggled against the Bulls last week and it won’t get easier against the Stormers. A low scoring win for the Stormers is highly likely.
Kings vs Lions
Lions by 19
The Lions are starting to build up steam and the Kings won’t be able to contain them for the full 80 with their leaky defense.
Brumbies vs Crusaders
Crusaders by 3
A very tight encounter should go in favour of the Crusaders with the Brumbies struggling for consistency in recent weeks.
