Sunwolves v Reds

Saturday 12th May, 1:05pm AEST – Prince Chichibu Memorial Stadium

The winless Sunwolves won’t get a better chance to open their account for the 2018 season when they host the Reds. Australian rugby could not be in a worse spot and is every chance to sinking to a new low in Tokyo this week. The Reds are the fourth Australian team to travel to Tokyo this year and while the Sunwolves haven’t won, they only went down to the Brumbies by seven and fought on well after a slow start to the Rebels. The Reds have lost their last two road games by 20-plus. The Sunwolves provide plenty of value here.

BACK – Sunwolves

Brumbies v Rebels

Saturday 12th May, 7:45pm AEST – GIO Stadium

Forget the Rebels’ start to the season, they have fallen into an awful hole. They have dropped five straight with four of those losses coming by 16 or more. Twice over that run they have conceded 50 points. The Brumbies have also lost their last three and have won just two of five at home this season but their defence has been significantly better than the Rebels, conceding more than 21 just once in their last six. The Brumbies have won seven of their last eight home games against Australian opposition.

BACK – Brumbies

Stormers v Chiefs

Saturday 12th May, 11:05pm AEST – DHL Newlands

The Chiefs have surprisingly come up a very good price in this clash with the Stormers at Newlands. The Chiefs were shock losers to the Jaguares at home last week but have won six of their last eight. Among those were their only two overseas jaunts, which resulted in a 51-point win over the Sunwolves and a 24-point win over the Reds. The Chiefs have now won five straight and eight of their last nine overseas matches, including back-to-back quarter final wins over the Stormers at Newlands.

BACK – Chiefs

Bulls v Sharks

Sunday 13th May, 1:15am AEST – Loftus Versfeld

The Bulls have certainly had the wood on the Sharks with the Sharks’ last win over their South African rivals coming back in Round 1 of the 2014 season, a stretch of six straight matches. The Bulls have lost back-to-back games but have hardly been playing awful rugby with three straight wins prior. These teams met just a month back and the Bulls thumped the Sharks 40-10 at Kings Park. The Sharks are 1-5 on the road this year.

BACK – Bulls
