04-05-2024 Daily Predictions Super Rugby Chiefs Vs Force

Chiefs vs Force

The Chiefs welcomes the Force to Hamilton for this Super Rugby encounter. The home side are currently in fourth position with 28 points and will be looking to cement a home quarter final. They have already lost three matches this season and have not looked as good as they did last season. They did however look back to their best last time out when they beat the Waratahs 38-22. The Force were involved in one of the worst ever matches last week when they lost 7-6 to the Highlanders. The game was marred by poor handling and lack of attacking intent.

TIP: The big injury news for the Chiefs was the early withdrawal of Shaun Stevenson from the last match. His not available so there has been a shuffle in the backline with Etene Nanai-Seturo moving to fullback and Daniel Rona moving to the wing. If the Force want to be competitive in this match, they will need to improve their handling. Any turnovers will be punished by the Chiefs as they are the best counter attacking team in the competition.  The bookies have the Chiefs as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Tictacbets 1.05, SoccerShop 1.05 and Bettabets 1.05

PREDICTION

The Chiefs have blown hot and clod this season but at home they have put teams to the sword. We do not expect different in this match as anything less than a bonus point win for the hosts will be considered disappointing. The Chiefs have the best backline in the competition and are ked by arguably the best attacking flyhalf in NZ in Damian McKenzie. They visitors must prevent the home side from getting quick ball otherwise they will eb chasing shadows for 80 minutes. The Force will be hoping that new nine Issak Fines-Leleiwasa will bring energy to a lethargic backline. I am predicting a Chiefs win by 30 points.
