01-04-2023 Daily Rugby Predictions Super Rugby Pacific Brumbies Vs Waratahs

Brumbies vs Waratahs

The Brumbies welcome fellow Aussie outfit the Waratahs to the GIO Stadium in Canberra for this Super Rugby match. Both teams are coming of losses in their last match with the home side losing away to the Crusaders. They will not be too disappointed with the result as they sent their mainly second stringers and rested their Wallaby players. The Waratahs will definitely be the more disappointed team as they slumped to their fourth loss of the season in only their fifth game. The long injury list of the visitors has not helped their cause but they seem to lack leadership on the field.

TIP: While the Waratahs are struggling, the Brumbies have looked like a well-oiled machine and will be hoping their players come back refreshed after having the last match off. They have shown a lot more attacking intent this season and not only relied on their rolling maul. The Waratahs will need players like Wallabies skipper Michael Hooper to step up and help stop the rot. The bookies have the Brumbies as favourites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.30, Gbets 1.28 and Hollywoodbets 1.30

PREDICTION

The Brumbies despite their new found attacking play are still excellent in the set piece and will look to attack the Waratahs at scrum and lineout time. The Waratahs biggest problem has been their lack of penetration in attack and their poor discipline. They have been giving away penalties that has cost then valuable territory  and if they continue with this trend, the Brumbies will punish them with their dangerous maul. The home team will be hoping that Noah Lolesio can get his pacy back three players in the game as they are all deadly finishers with winger Corey Toole arguably the fastest player in the competition. I am predicting a home win by 15 points
