    Driving back from Durban today I thought, Hein gave up on this thread for Super rugby thing! Guess when I get home I need to create a round 5 thread because I need to rant about #SharksVsJags. Thankfully I don't need to do it now.

    Also can I suggest that when people comment on these threads where multiple games are played that they specify which game they are commenting on? Obviously everyone can do what they want but I do think it would help the people who read these threads on a Monday to dissect towards what games what commentary was made on. And we will know that "spectacular try there" was actually for the (insert team here) game.

    Predictions:
    Sunwolves v Brumbies - should be a very straightforward game for the Brumbies. could be another big margin of defeat for the Sunwolves
    Crusaders v Reds - only one outcome here. home win by 20 plus points.
    Waratahs v Chiefs - Chiefs should be too strong but coming in a bit rusty off a bye week. may be closer than first appears on paper.
    Hurricanes v Blues - got a feeling that was a massive win for the Blues last week in terms of their self-belief. mind you the Canes are looking good. tough one to call.
    Rebels v Lions - made the mistake of picking the Lions last week, not this time. Rebels to give them a hiding.
    Sharks v Jaguares - Sharks looking good at the moment and I think they'll win this one. not sure about the best team in the African conference as of yet.
    Bulls v Highlanders - think the Bulls will lose yet again I'm afraid.

    The only reason why I left it late was because of the Sunwolves vs. Brumbies game, as we weren't sure when the game would take place, or if it will take place at all.

    It was originally scheduled to be played on Sunday, but they moved it to Friday, and to the same venue as the Waratahs game.

    It will be a double header on Friday at the same venue, with a 2 hour interval inbetween.

    I like your crazy prediction. The Sunwolves are my team, but I don't feel they'll win this week. I hope you're right though.

    The tahs are so painful to watch. They're the little engine that couldn't.

    the Chiefs really turned it on in the 2nd half. 14 - 13 down at HT and they win 51 - 14!. I think the Chiefs could be the best side in the comp, especially after seeing the Crusaders scrape a win against the Reds in pretty unimpressive fashion.

    How the heck did that 2nd tahs try get awarded? The TMO actually looked at it right? He clearly lost it as he was trying to ground.

    I didn't see that match. Now that you've made it mysterious I'll have to watch the replay on ESPN+.

    Well my Sunwolves were blown out for the third match in a row. But this blowout loss to the Brumbies wasn't as bad as the last two. This match was supposed to be played in Tokyo, but they moved it to Australia because of the coronavirus. The commentator mentioned that the Sunwolves might not get to play at home again this season. That's too bad because the Sunwolves attendance in Tokyo is usually very good.

    The Blues had a 15-12 player advantage at one point in those final twenty minutes and missed a drop kick instead of holding onto the ball and going for another try and the bonus point. Is that what you're referring too? Anyway, they got the win and snapped a very long losing streak to the Hurricanes. I'm not sure, but I think the commentator said the Blues had lost nine in a row to the Hurricanes.
