blackcrow Posted April 9, 2011 Share Posted April 9, 2011 Crusaders win by 1-12 margin @ 2.75 centrebet The Crusaders are the best side in the competition but they will not have it so easy here, as the Bulls are a good side, and their defence is pretty solid. They are without some key players like Carter and Whitelock, while McCaw is still out, so the Bulls have a chance here. Still, the Crusaders have plenty of class about them, and their own defence is very good. While the Bulls will likely kick for field position, the Crusaders will keep the ball in the hand, and can see them do enough to edge this, as the Bulls will use the boot of Steyn to keep this close Brumbies - Hurricanes over 49.5 @ 1.90 centrebet Both sides have underachieved this year, as they have some talented players who have underperformed. However it is their defence that has let them down, and with both sides allowing at least 26 points each in their last 4 games, then if these two sides can hold the ball, can see this being a high scoring game. Waratahs -6.5 @ 2.01 centrebet The Waratahs are likely to target the Force scrum like they did in preseason, and if they repeat that here, they should win this one well. Furthermore, without Hodgson and Pocock, they lose plenty at the break down and even though Waugh is not for the Waratahs, they have plenty of cover there. The Waratahs have won their last 2 games by 7 points, so they tend to keep it close, but they have far more talent and depth than the Force, and they need to start winning with bonus points to keep themselves up there.
