It’s the last weekend of Super Rugby for the next month, and thankfully, the competition is going to go into its recess with a bang. By my count, six of the eight games can have some kind of bearing on the race to the playoffs.
Two very disturbing outcomes from the Round 13 tipping panel last week: I picked the card, and the bloody Crowd now leads overall.
After a recent chat, it was really interesting watching a team in red and black making short work of their opposition over the weekend. And I’m not talking about what the Crusaders did to the Waratahs.
Round 13 – unlucky for some, perhaps, and the teams in contention for the playoffs will be hoping it’s not them. Though it would be a special kind of spooky if Round 13 presented upsets everywhere. Wooo-oooooo!
But not in the ‘ooh, South African forearm, must taste’ sense, which poor old Jaguares and Argentinean international backrower Leonardo Senatore seems to be afflicted with.
Following on from the Report Card last week, it seems as good a time as any to map out the run home for the teams definitely and theoretically still in contention for the Super Rugby playoffs.
