23-02-2024 Daily Predictions Super Rugby Rebels Vs Brumbies

Rebels vs Brumbies

The Rebels welcome the Brumbies in this all Aussie derby to kick off Super Rugby in Melbourne. The home side have been making all the headlines regarding their administration problems and it remains to be seen if this effects the performance on the field. The Brumbies look to be the more settled team coming into this season although they have lost the services of Nic White to the Rebels. The match will see the debut of Filipo Daugunu and Taniela Tupou who both moved from the Reds at the end of last season. The latter of the pair will start from the bench as the powerhouse prop will want to prove his fitness after being out with injury for almost the whole of last season.

TIP: Taniela Tupou will start from the bench as the powerhouse prop will want to prove his fitness after being out with injury for almost the whole of last season. The man that all eyes will be on is Carter Gordon after his breakthrough season in 2023. The number ten is an attacking flyhalf that is excellent as linking his backline as he takes the ball to the line. His contest with Noah Lolesio promises to be one of the highlights of the match. The bookies have the Brumbies as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.40, Gbets 1.40 and Hollywoodbets 1.41

PREDICTION

The Rebels were one of the most improved sides last season and Gordon was a large part of that upward curve. His opposite number lost his Wallaby place to the youngster. The Brumbies have always been an excellent set piece teams and they will to dominate the home team from the onset. They also have deadly finishers in their backline with the likes of Corey Toole and Tom Wright. The Rebels will be confident of a close contest if their forwards can at least gain parity with the Brumbies pack. This match will go down to the wire with me predicting an away win by 4 points.
