Brumbies vs Hurricanes
The Brumbies play host to the Hurricanes in Canberra for this final Super Rugby quarter final. The home team will be looking for a repeat of last season when they beat the Canes at the same stage of the competition. These teams finished 4th and 5th after the league phase so we can expect a tight battle as the teams are very evenly matched.
The Brumbies will be counting on their home advantage as they have beaten the visitors on their last four visits to the Aussie capital. The Canes will be looking to sustain an 80 minute performance after falling away badly the last time they lost to the Brumbies.
TIP: The Brumbies had to overcome a few injury issues as their flyer Corey Toole has been ruled out. He will be strongly missed as his pace is electric and has been scoring tries for fun. Noah Lolesio returns from injury but will start the match from the bench. The Canes have kept faith with the team from the last match and have an explosive bench with the likes of Asafo Aumua and Du’Plessis Kirifi due to come on in the second half. The bookies have the Hurricanes as favourites but I’m tipping the Brumbies for the upset win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 2.10, Gbets 2.10 and Hollywoodbets 2.15
HEAD TO HEAD STATS
Brumbies vs Hurricanes
- The Brumbies have won four of the last six matches between the sides.
- The home team have won the last six fixtures between these teams
Latest results for both teams
The Brumbies beat the Rebels 33-16 in their last match while the Hurricanes beat the Crusaders 27-26 in their last match.
The Brumbies are once again the only Aussie side making the playoffs and they will be keen to make the semis but first they will need to overcome an Ardie Savea led Hurricanes team. The visitors seem to have hit form at the right time as they came from behind to beat the Crusaders last time out. The home team have become famous over the years for being a forward dominated team but this season they have been keeping ball in hand more often therefore the loss of Toole is a major blow to them. The Hurricanes will be counting on their super strong bench to get them through but the home advantage will see the Brumbies win by four points.
