Rebels v Sharks

Friday 23nd March, 7:45pm AEDT – Aami Park

The Rebels fast start to the season came to a crashing halt last week with a 51-27 defeat at the hands of the Waratahs. The Sharks have won just one of their opening four matches but are a major overlay in this one. The Rebels have won just two of nine against South African opposition since 2015. The Sharks have lost just two of their last nine against Australian opposition. The Sharks are a max bet this week.

Hurricanes v Highlanders

Saturday 24rd March, 5:35pm AEDT – Westpac Stadium

After a surprising first-up loss to the Bulls, the Hurricanes have bounced back in style with a 34-9 win over the Jaguares before a brilliant 29-19 victory at home to the Crusaders. The Highlanders themselves are also coming off a victory over the Crusaders, keeping their undefeated seasons going with a 25-17 home win over Canterbury. The Highlanders hit the road for the first time this year and they face a tough task having won just two of their last seven against New Zealand rivals away from home. The Hurricanes have won 14 of their last 15 home games with 13 of those victories coming by 9 or longer.

  BACK – Hurricanes -5.5

Jaguares v Lions

Sunday 25th March, 8:40pm AEDT – Velez Sarsfield Stadium

The model is very keen on the Lions in this one when they travel to Argentina to take on the Jaguares. Though Johan Ackermann’s team has won four of five games this year and sits atop the Super Rugby ladder, two disappointing performances – a home loss to the Blues and a two-point win over the Sunwolves – over the last two weeks has punters wary. This has seen them get out to a very backable price this week against a Jaguares team who have won just one of their last six home games. The teams met in South Africa in round two and the Lions won 47-27 on the back of an Aphiwe Dyantyi double. The Lions have tipped over here and are excellent value.
