Super Rugby Season 2018: Quarter Final Analysis

Saturday 21st July 8.05pm AEST – Allianz Stadium

The Waratahs broke a long drought for Australian teams against New Zealand foes when they walloped the Highlanders 41-12 at Allianz Stadium in Week 14. The Tahs finished the season with four wins from their final six games and it is their attack that has been most impressive with three scores of 40-plus and not tally under 27. The Highlanders have lost three of their last four road games and struggled to defeat the woeful Reds in the other.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – Waratahs +2.5

Saturday 21st July 11.05pm AEST – Ellis Park Stadium

The Jaguares head into the Super Rugby finals for the first time but face a tough task against last year’s beaten finalists the Lions. The Lions rediscovered their best form over the last month of the regular season with three wins in their final four games that saw them top the South African conference and get the second ladder position. The Lions downed the Jaguares by 20 when they played at Emirates Airlines Park in Week 2. The situation should prove too great for the Argentine team.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – Lions -8.5

Friday 20st July 5.35pm AEST – Westpac Stadium

The Hurricanes may have gone down to the Chiefs last week but with eight wins in the last 11 clashes and their season on the line, it is Chris Boyd’s team that should be winning. The Hurricanes have won 21 of their last 22 matches at the Cake Tin and have not lost at Wellington this year with an average winning margin of 12.38. The Chiefs are only 5-3 on the road this year and have lost four straight quarter finals. The Hurricanes bounce back.

Betting Strategy

 BACK – Hurricanes – 5.5
