24-02-2023 Daily Predictions Super Rugby Waratahs Vs Brumbies

Waratahs vs Brumbies

The Waratahs welcome the Brumbies to the Allianz Stadium, Sydney in this opening round match. The Waratahs will be delighted to be back at their traditional home and will be hoping that that they can break their win drought against the Brumbies. Their last win over the visitors was in 2018 which is the longest they have gone without beating the Brumbies. The visitors have got the core of their team from last season and will again be the favourite to qualify for the playoffs among the Australian sides. The Waratahs welcome back giant wing Nemani Nadolo although his return will be via the bench.

TIP: The Brumbies are the one Australian side that has constantly done well in the competition that has been dominated by the NZ sides. They built their success on the back of an excellent rolling maul and very strong set piece game. The Waratahs on the other hand have deadly attackers all across the field and will adopt a ball in hand approach. If their forwards can lay a decent platform for them, then they could shock the Brumbies. The bookies have the Brumbies as favourites but I’m tipping the Waratahs for the upset win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 2.25, Gbets 2.20 and Hollywoodbets 2.23

Latest results for both teams

This is the first round of matches for Super Rugby 2023.


The Waratahs have one of the most exciting backlines in the competition led by the fearsome midfield combo of Izaia Perese and Lalakai Foketi. Both players are powerful ball carriers and always get over the advantage line. The Brumbies will need to stop them before they gain momentum otherwise they will create havoc. The visitors will once again test the home side with their driving maul but if the Waratahs maul defence is good then they will win this match. Former Wallaby skipper Michael Hooper will make a big difference to the young Waratahs side and this is the reason I am predicting a home win by five points.
