24-02-2024 Daily Predictions Super Rugby Reds Vs Waratahs

Reds vs Waratahs

It’s another all-Aussie derby as the Reds take on the Waratahs to kick off their Super Rugby campaigns. Both teams will be looking for an improvement on their performances from last season. They both the playoffs but lost more matches than they won. The Reds have made lost the services of Taniela Tupou but were without him the whole of last season due to injury. The Waratahs have lost Michael Hooper and Ben Donaldson which will be major blows to them. There is sure to be plenty of rustiness from both sides with the team settling down fist, likely to be the winner.  

Tip: The undoubted strength of the Reds team lies in their all-international back row of Harry Wilson, Fraser McReight and Liam Wright. All three players are excellent runners and are great at turnovers. The Waratahs loose trio will have their work cut out trying to contain them. The match is likely to be decided in the forwards and this is where the home team certainly has the edge. The bookies have the Reds as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.47, Gbets 1.48 and Hollywoodbets 1.48

PREDICTION

Young Tom Lynagh has been trusted with the flyhalf jersey and it will be interesting to see if he is anywhere as his great dad, Michael. One of the highlights of the match will be the battle between the two Wallaby nines, Tate McDermott and Jake Gordon. Both players love to run with the ball and cause havoc for opposition defenses. The Reds will be delighted to have powerhouse centre Hunter Paisami back for this match after his injury problems. The Reds have the more experienced team and that will prove crucial in this match therefore I predict a home win by 10 points.
