blackcrow Posted February 18, 2011 Share Posted February 18, 2011 Hurricanes win 1-12 margin @ 2.75 centrebet Highlanders have a number of injuries in the forwards which takes away their ability to match it with the Hurricanes, who have the far better set of backs to win this game. While the Hurricanes should go on and win with the number of All Blacks they have in the backline, they do tend to play to their opposition and can see this being much closer than expected, with Highlanders playing abover expectations while the Hurricanes coasting along, and not wanting to do too much in the first game. These two teams tend to play each other close with the Hurricanes winning each of the last 4 meetings, with no more than 5 points separating them. Going with the home team to record another narrow win over their southern counterparts Waratahs win by 1-12 margin @ 2.75 centrebet Waratahs have a squad capable of winning the title and should be able to come out on top in this game, as they have very good balance in the forwards and backs. Their away form in the past has been solid without being spectacular, so while they should go on to win this, expect a spirited performance from the new boys in the competition. They have put together a handy squad that will be competitive, and they showed in the trial game with the Crusaders that they will do well. Whether they gel enough for this game is another matteras the Waratahs have been progressing year to year into legitmiate contenders this year. Like the Waratahs to do enough here to edge out the Rebels, but doubt that it will be a blowout as with a very good coach in Macqueen, they have a guy who tactically is very astute, and will have worked on the team giving a very good first up performance to gain and maintain interest in this side Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
