Round 4 of Super Rugby is happening this weekend and the Bulls are back in Action on Friday. Hopefully they have taken some me time and reflected on how they have made us Bulls` fans feel after the first two rounds.
Our coaches for the week, Steven Horne, and Shane Robertson., both veterans of our pool.
First game of the weekend sees the Crusaders home to the Blues. Blues have improved in 2017, but not sure if they are strong enough to knock off the Crusaders who stumbled last weekend. Steven Agrees picks Saders by 12, Shane by 6, I have them by 11. Game is at 08h35
At 10h45, Rebels host the Chiefs. One way traffic expected in Melbourne here. Chiefs have shown some great form and are looking at taking over the top spot after this weekend`s rugby. Rebels haven`t started well with 2 losses. Picks are for the Chiefs, Shane by 21, Steven by 18 I have them by 19.
First South African game is at Loftus on Friday evening at 19h00. Bulls host the Sunwolves. Both teams have starts they wish they could forget with 0 wins so far. Will the Bulls finally get their selection combinations right. We`ll see on Friday. Shane Robertson has the Bulls by 18, I agree Steven by 16, Someone picked the Bulls to win by 52.
On Saturday Hurricanes host the Highlanders at 08h35. Top game of the weekend this. Hurricanes stumbled last week and will be keen on getting back to winning ways while the Highlanders found their feet last weekend. Home team getting the picks, Steven picks the Canes by 12, Shane by 10 I have them by 6.
