Round 14: Preview and Predictions


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

It’s crunch time, folks. Round 14 of the 2008 Super 14 and 6 teams fighting tooth and nail for the three remaining semi-final slots.

Ghost10 is still a bit tied up, settling into his new day job (yes – we all have those around here) and has asked me to have another stab at doing the predicting. No easy feat this week, considering how many games there are that could so easily go either way.

Blues v Hurricanes

A huge New Zealand derby gets proceedings underway this weekend. This match is an absolute must-win for both teams. For the Hurricanes, they really need an absolute minimum of two points to ensure they qualify at all. Their points difference is looking very healthy on 108, thanks to the record thrashings of the Bulls and Cheetahs, so 42 points will ensure they can end no worse than fourth. A home semi final will be virtually assured, though, should they win. To make second spot unassailable, though, they will need a full house of five points.

The Blues have their backs against the wall, but a five-point win here will get them to 41 (and hopefully take them past the Canes) and put them in with a good shout should any of the Waratahs, Sharks or Stormers lose. For them, it will be crucial to prevent the Canes getting any points out of this fixture.

So, we’ll have two teams going all out to score four tries and win the game. The Blues, though, can’t afford to be as carefree in their approach as the Hurricanes can, as any losing bonus points dished out to the Wellington men could still see them finish above the Aucklanders. Looking at form coming into this game, one feels that the Blues are probably playing the better rugby right now. They are at home and should have the upper hand in the forwards, given that Neemia Tialata is out and Jerry Collins just returning from injury for the Canes. Nick Evans is coming back to his best form and is proving a match-winner at fullback, so it’s mostly with head (although there’s a lot of heart involved) that I call the Blues to triumph in the opening game, thus ending the Hurricanes’ play-off hopes.

Force v Brumbies

Um, do we care? Ok, I guess we do, because there are still SuperBru points on offer here, but it’s hard to get too excited about a game that has absolutely no relevance in the play-off race. To me, it’s quite simple. The Force are at home and they are in reasonable nick at the moment. Matt Giteau is back from injury and dictating matters from flyhalf and together with Nathan Sharpe, Drew Mitchell and Cameron Shepherd, the Force just look to have too many guns for the Brumbies. The Criminal Cavalry were absolutely pathetic against the Bulls last week and one gets the feeling that they expect Stirling Mortlock to win every game on his own. Expect the talismanic skipper to score a try somewhere along the line, but it won’t be enough to prevent a comfortable victory to the Western Force.

Crusaders v Highlanders

Another game where neither team really has anything to play for. The Crusaders have picked their strongest team and will no doubt want to tune their awesome machine for next week’s semi-final. There must be a slight doubt, though, in the backs of some minds, as it won’t help them at all if they pick up injuries by going all-out in a meaningless game.

The Highlanders have vacillated between pathetic and poor all season and should be further disrupted by Jimmy Cowan’s antisocial antics last weekend, which have left a cloud over the scrumhalf’s availability. You can pick this one with your eyes closed, guys. Saders to walk it; get those margins up.

Reds v Waratahs

The second absolutely crucial game of the weekend. The Tahs need three more points to ensure a play-off place, but can’t guarantee a home semi-final unless the Blues beat the Canes. In that case, a win will be enough to ensure the Sydney team can’t be overtaken on 43 points. Should the Blues lose out, then the Tahs will be able to finish third at best, in which case a four-point win will also be ok. The reds, of course, have nothing to play for other than pride.

The Waratahs have been badly off the boil the last two weeks. They were expecting to pick up at least 8 points on their SA tour. Instead, they got 3. They seem to be on a downward spiral and it would be tempting to say that the Reds could beat them. The Queenslanders played superbly against the Crusaders last week and had the log-leaders on the ropes, before choking in the most dramatic fashion. History has shown that these derby games are virtually impossible to pick, though and that you can usually throw the form book out of the window.

Three factors play into the Waratah’s hands here. First, the Reds are without Chris Latham, which immediately makes them 30% weaker. Second, the Reds don’t have as much at stake as the Waratahs do. You can say what you like, but there’s just not way in hell that the Reds will be anywhere near as hungry as the Tahs. Thirdly, the Tahs will no that all they need to do is win. If they get four points, then they don’t have to worry about points difference. Further, it doesn’t matter whether they allow their opponents any bonus points, as the Reds are out of the race. Their destiny regarding a home semi-final is not in their hands; even if they somehow end on level points with the Hurricanes, they would have a points differential of virtually 50 to make up, so they will know coming into this game whether they can still finish second. Either way, they will be going out to win and win at all costs.

I think it will be close, but the Tahs will definitely find a way to win this one.

Lions v Stormers

Another big derby. Here, the permutations are a lot more difficult to work out. Firstly, the Lions have the better pack, hands down. Again, though, there is the fact that the Stormers have everything to play for and the Lions nothing. The Stormers, though, will know that they have to get the full five points and win by the highest possible margin, lest they lose out. That adds a huge weight of expectation to the team.

There is also a lot of needle going into this game and no doubt a number of players who will feel they have individual points to prove. The Lions, to my mind, have an erratic genius in Earl Rose and he’s about as likely to win the game for them as he is to cause defeat. He was good last week, which makes me think he’ll be vrot this time out. Jacques Fourie will test the Stormers midfield defence, but again the Lions have some serious weakness out wide in the form of Rayno Benjamin, who seemingly can’t catch a cold.

I’m going to give this one to the Stormers, simply because they have more to play for than the Lions do. I don’t think it’s going to be convincing, though – more importantly, I don’t see the Stormers getting a bonus point.

Cheetahs v Bulls

Another game that means nothing. The Bulls are on the up, while the Cheetahs couldn’t win if they played against themselves. The Cheetahs loose forwards continue to be outstanding and should shade the Bulls in this department, given Wikus van Heerden’s withdrawal. In fact, the Cheetahs may well have the better of the forward exchanges in general, but I don’t think it will be enough of an advantage to stop the Bulls running riot, particularly if their centres target the brittle Cheetahs midfield defence.

Bulls to win, if anybody actually cares.

Sharks v Chiefs

The Sharks rose to the challenge pretty well last week, beating the Cheetahs nicely to keep themselves in the race. By the time this game kicks off, they’ll know what they need to do to qualify and in all likelihood, that will mean winning with a bonus point. Against a Chiefs team that’s battling find 22 fit players and potentially without all of their gamebreakers, you have to back the Sharks to win in style. The Chiefs will come into this game no longer able to qualify anyway, which will just mean they have that much less fire in their already tired bellies.

So, that’s how I see it. My final log positions will be

1. Crusaders 57
2. Waratahs 43
3. Sharks 42
4. Blues 41

  • I expect the Stromers to get the 5 points. That means the Sharks have to score a big points difference to avoid the fourth place booby prize of a trip to Christchurch.

    Having said that the Sharks are a team that seem able to raise themselves against the Saders, and it could be an “upset” result. :) Bring in the weekend.

  • I don’t see the Stormers getting a bonus point.

    you have to back the Sharks to win in style.

    Okay bear with me here…

    The Stormers are up against arguably the weakest team in the Super 14 competition, for a couple of years now – and also a team that have not managed to beat them in how many years – and yet no bonus point.

    The Sharks could only manage to score two bonus point victories in the whole Super 14 so far, one against a 14-man Bulls team and one against a team in the Cheetahs who is only beaten by the Lions as one of the weakest teams in the competition and that in the last 5 minutes only – yet they have a cake walk coming against the Chiefs, who beat the Crusaders, and who are also still in with a shout at the semi’s?

    Not to mention the fact that the Chiefs scored 41 tries this year so far, second only to the Crusaders – and the Lions conceded 41 with only the Cheetahs letting more tries in…

    Did I get this right?

  • @MorneN (Comment 19) : Yes – you got it right.

    Because to me, it’s actually quite simple. The Stormers, quite honestly, don’t have the pack to live with the Lions right now. Schalk Ferreira? Brok Harris? Come on!

    The Chiefs are walking wounded at the moment. The Sharks are going to stuff them and it’s all going to start up front.

    You can’t win without forwards, dude. You know that as well as I do.

  • @Hmmm (Comment 4) : Not sure what you mean by “soft?” Great dart from Odwa into just the right space for the first try, and the second try started with another storming run from Kanko.

    Besides, the first 3 (count ‘em) tries looked of that “hard” variety to me. :razz:

    You’re right that they didn’t always look convincing, but it was a thrilling weekend of rugby all the same. :)

  • The Lions could not buy a win this season with their ‘formidable’ pack whilst the Stormers and their light 5 won more than they lost and find themselves ahead of the Sharks…

    If we could manage to get here with our light 5, surely the worst team in the competition is not going to change that?

    Yes it is a derby, and yes they are unpredictable at best, but predictions are based on a bit of fact surely?

    Since you guys lost Moller and Schalk, you’ve looked shyte in the forwards. You were just lucky that the Brumbies don’t have a pack either. The Waratahs stuffed you up-front last week.

    Keep focus here. I didn’t for a moment say I didn’t think you would beat the Lions. I just don’t think it’s going to be the one-way traffic, bonus-point bloodbath that the Cape fanatics all expect.

    All I am saying is that the Cheetahs have let past the most tries in the comp….and on Saturday they let through a few sopft ones…and if Odwa did not score I’d say he was a dutt…was not even a full step needed…and Kanko took the ball at pace and with his pace was always gonna beat the player on the outside….

    Soft tries cozz the Cheethas were not organised…were not in a line (standing standing up or some standing back) which makes it easy to step…

    All I am saying is the Sharks still have loads to do on attack…

  • We held our own pretty damn well against the Tahs even though they had the upper hand (which they had against the Sharks too remember, taking them to task badly) and getting a draw out of that game – in shit conditions no-less!

    And you could expect a bonus point from a team whose backline is absolute crap. I mean they have to be crap to let in 41 tries not so???

    I dont expect our props to score, I expect the backline to score, like they have all season.

    Player for player, the Lions only has an advantage in the front row, and fetcher in Baywatch (which some Luke disciples will even contest) – the other 11 battles, man for man, the Stormers through the form this season compared to the Lions takes hands-down!

    Surely it is logical?

    Think you are a bit skewed there…

    In the tight 5 the LIONS only had Heinke…who was not even on par this season in general play…

    The lose trio was awesome when all fit and I think kept them in the game…

    The backline has one record…for messing up the most scoring oppo than any other team…

    Example…4 catch and fall or pass and fall tries against the Sharks who won by only one score…

    They led against Saders, Tahs, Brumbies, and several other teams after the first half…and also won the match against the force but was called back and fro a scrum to them!??!??!??! Try disallowed..

    So yeh not exactly sure where you coming from…

    Only thing they were worst at was scoring tries…but they have not lost the most matches…that goes to the Cheetahs and then the Highlanders…LIONS lost the 3rd most matches….

  • @Hmmm (Comment 29) : The Lions have promised and deceived this year like they have every year for the last 5 years if not more.

    Every year I hear the same stuff, with just different names mentioned.

    The same way I can blame Willie Roos for the loss against the Bulls and Sharks and that other oke for the loss against the Blues – which means the Stormers would have lost only 1 game this year…

    Useless point, useless argument.

    The Lions had 41 tries scored against them – you cannot wish it away, or argue it away – that is crap end of story, and that is why they lost.

    If you only score 21 tries and concede 41 can you really be surprised you find yourself at the bottom (sorry 3rd from the bottom)?

    No matter how you argue this, the Stormer should based on Super 14 form of 2008, get a bonus point victory.

  • Dude, relax. As Rob was saying, he feels (and its his opinion) that the Stormers won’t canter to a 5 point victory. Firstly, the Stormers scrum has been weakened lately. Secondly, the Lions actually played bloody well last week, and seem to have finally found a bit of decent form. Assuming that a team is only as good as its last match, you’d have to say, the Lions are going to make things difficult for the Mountain Goats. They don’t want to end on 14, so there’s pride at stake to avoid the wooden spoon.

    Granted Human is not my favourite but if you want to pick a winner out of two losers be my guest.

    Fourie has been back one game – Bobo has been consistently good this season. Remember what being undercooked did to the AB’s in both last year’s S14 and the World Cup???

    So one game back which was good makes Fourie the one man to turn the fortune of 14 next to him around?

    Front row: Lions
    Locks: Stormers
    Loosies: Tight one, every supporter of his own province will say his is best, so lets call this equal.
    9 & 10: Stormers
    Centers: Stormers
    Back Three: Stormers

    Now do you want me to give each combination points out of 10 to show the difference between the two too?

    Did Fourie not do just that on Saturday!??!

    We were talking the whole week how SA had serious problems at 13 and one game back Fourie gave most the confidence that we have no problem there….

    And the back 3 very debatable!??!

    Rassie said you were outplayed on the ground by the Tahs….not? And hence the change in the loose trio…
    The LIONS outplayed the Tahs on the ground but yet again could not finish a try with an open tryline….

  • Oh and the 50/50 decision all went the Stormers way throughout the comp?

    Difference is they still won games.

    So the Lions are just shit out of luck? For 13 weeks? Sheez that sure is a bad run of luck if we consider the performances in the last 5 years!!!

    Like someone wise once said, you have to earn the right to play wide and score tries – which obviously has to do with the work being done upfront first – I reckon given the Stormers performance their light 5 did not do to badly then…

    Same as defenses, you think it is only because guys can tackle well? Or do you perhaps think it has a hell of a lot to do with the work the loosies do at the breakdown?

    Seems the Stormers loosies are not too shabby there too then…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 49) : Back three debatable? You surely must be joking…

    Name a better SA center pairing in the Super 14 this year other than the Stormers combination…

    How many times did Jaque partner with this young kid previously? Yeah deadly combo that…

    The Tahs did beat the Stormers on the ground, like they did most teams – even if you scored that one try… What would the score be for the Lions against the Tahs? 26-10???

    Under the ELV’s the guys that win the breakdown more or less win the match – it has been proven many times over – so sure, the Lions have the best loosie combo in the Super 14… So simple to see actually.

    Yuo see Hmmy, thats the difference between the Lions and the Stormers.

    The Lions lose Jacque Fourie and they fall apart. The stormers lose Schalk Burger, who is one helluva lot better than Fourie anyway, yet they pick themselves up, dont make excuses and carry on winning.

    Thats the difference between a quality side and a side with only one or two good players.

    I put your loose trio as 1 with Schalk there…sure there are posts of this in teh archives….but since he is out…I back the LIONS loose trio to win that battle…

  • I’ll tell you what Hmmy. Lets stop this debate about who is going to knock the ball on more, who is going to win the breakdown at the battle and who is going to tie his shoelaces the most.

    Thos are all subjective and we can argue all day.

    So put your money where your mouth is and place a wager on the only statistic that counts – the scoreboard after 80 minutes.

    No more mental masturbation – if you’re so confident put your head on the block.

    And after this weekend they’ll still be the worst in the competition.

    I really couldnt care how good they are at the breakdown or how strong Heinke is – those things dont win matches.

  • @Hmmm (Comment 80) : Nah mate I am still on about the very same thing I mentioned in my first post – how Robd had the Stormers down for a win but no bonus point based on some very simple stats and facts.

    Every single post since then has been supporting my first post. Quite simple really.

    The point is if the Stormers do not come away with a bonus point victory against the Lions they would have let themselves down a hell of a lot – because judged on everything they have done so far this season they should be able to do this.

    Of course the Lions are not going to lie down and no-one expects them too, but if we are “PREDICTING” a possible result for Saturday then lets do that logically at least – and that refers to all my posts above.

    Based on that performance I’d say the bonus point is definitely not a certainty, even if you are playing against the Lions.

    Well if that’s the only basis for your point then its quite irrelevant as the stormers have played like shite at home all year.

    But then this weekend’s game is not at home…

    Granted Quinny, nothing is a gimme, but PA’s point was simply if you’re gonna make a prediction on the wekeend’s games, then surely if you’re predicting a bonus point win for the attacking-disadvantaged Sharks against the Chiefs then surely you should also predict a BP for the stromers as they are playing similar opposition.

    Now stop straying off the point as that is the arguemnt being put forward.

    Blame Rob for suggesting that we’re going to get a bonus & you guys not. Personally my gut tells me these games may be a lot tighter than we expect.

  • it is simple really.

    85,74% of you thought the Chiefs would klap Lions last week and the inclusion of one player and some serious resolve caused only 14,26% of us to be right that the Lions would win.

    Pick the Stormers at you own peril this weekend. :wink:

    Oops misread the table.

    So after ten matches we are exactly level on matches.

    We have scored 267 points
    They have scored 275 points

    and 34 tries apiece.

    How many other teams are this close after 10 years. Not a lot i am sure.

    I sprayed a mix of water & dishwashing liquid on it – as suggested by that link – only to discover it had a sort of agent orange effect on both aphids & plant!

    yes it was in a pot, and there was no way it was underwatered. The scarred leaves were also pretty obvious…scorched by chemicals, methinks. I was so looking forward to my first chilli harvest too… :cry:

  • anyway – at least you killed the aphids. Now your replacement chilli plant should hopefully be free of them.

    I’ve grown a fair few from seed… you can have one if you like
