Here we go, gang – let’s try pick the winners for this week.

Highlanders v Stormers (Friday 09h35)
Fleckie’s boys were humiliated by the Crusaders last week and have a number of injuries to contend with this week as well. The Highlanders are nowhere near as strong as the top Kiwi sides this year, but I fancy they’ll have too much for the Stormers in a very tricky stadium for opposition teams. Highlanders by 10 points.

Chiefs v Sunwolves (Saturday 09h35)
Yeah, um, this is going to be a slaughter. Chiefs by 35.

Reds v Waratahs (Saturday 11h45)
Snorefest of note, I’m sure. How do you pick which of these teams is less shit? Not sure. Tahs by 2?

Force v Lions (Saturday 13h55)
A nice easy tour opener for the Lions and you can’t see them losing to the Force – on any given day. Lions to win by 15.

Cheetahs v Crusaders (Saturday 17h15)
Let’s see – the Cheetahs couldn’t even find a way to beat the Bulls, so their chances of toppling the log leaders are basically nil. Yes, Crusaders to prevail by 12 or more.

Kings v Rebels (Saturday 19h30)
The Kings are back home and on a bit of a high after a shock win over the Waratahs last week. The Rebels don’t have much to offer and assuming the Kings play better than the Sharks did last week (not hard) they should take this. Kings by 7 points. Go Kings!

Jaguares v Sharks (Saturday 21h40)
Both of these teams need to find their mojo – and fast. The Jagures haven’t won in three week, but are back at home this week and will want to pick up where they left off in terms of a proud home record. The Sharks were nothing short of abjectly poor last week and will know that coach Rob is going to properly blow a gasket if they play that way again. I wonder whether there’s enough firepower to record a victory in Argentina and have to be honest, though, in that I think there may not be. Head over heart says Jaguares to win by 5 points.

Brumbies v Blues (Sunday 08h05)
Blues will win by 8. Maybe more.

  • So after a bit of thinking and the odd thumb suck I went:
    Highlanders by 10
    Chiefs by 36
    Reds by 2
    Lions by 10
    Crusaders by 19
    Kings by 6
    Sharks by 4
    Brumbies by 4
    Actually my 10-year old helped me with these. He thinks you got two wrong, Rob. If he gets 8 out of 8 I’ll get him to write an article with some tips for all of us… :mrgreen:

  • Same picks as you Rob. The only game that worries me is the very dull Aussie derby. The only thing worse than watching the Aus game will be to watch a repeat of the Sharks game last week.

  • @McLovin (Comment 11) : The way you go on you have no choice but to defend the ref even if his decisions cost you a 1 point title loss. You have nailed your colours to the mast and anything close to criticizing the ref will seem to be hypocritical on your part.

    Two results on tour for Stormers:
    Vs Saders 57-24
    Vs Landers 57-14
    So vs Canes 57-4 looks reasonable!!!! :twisted:

    it is to highlight the fact that when up against formidible odds The Sharks (unlike the weather girls commonly referred to as stormers) put up a fight and leave the field with their heads held high, safe in the knowledge that they gave it their all.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 25) :

    They scored a really good first up running try and then proceeded to try to run it out of their in-goal and gave away the equalizer. Then they ran in two more tries for the Highlanders and from there felt compelled to revert to running rugby for the rest of the match, from whence the end result became frightfully predictable. I skipped forward through most of the 2nd half, but from what I saw they did a lot of running, passing, offloading and standing under the goal posts.

    They dominated the scrums and had a clear upperhand in the lineouts, but since they studiously avoided tactics that could lead to those, it was to no effect.

    The kicking game? What kicking game?
    I suspect Harry Viljoen is a consultant coach.

  • The objective of the Stormers was apparently to prove that in one on one situations, the advantage goes to the better athelete and this they did conclusively.

    The last time I watch the Cheetahs, they set out to demonstrate that they would be a highly competative team in 60 minute rugby matches.

    The Bulls did this thing where from a setpiece on the opponents 10 meter line, they recycled the ball through 10 phases whilst conceding ground all the way into their own 22 in order to concede a turnover and a try.
    The purprose if this tactic is a mystery wrapped in an enigma.

  • @McLovin (Comment 42) : Breath… :mrgreen:
    You do make a fair point, though…
    At the root of all this lies my greatest frustration with the Sharks: they play better rugby when they are up against it and cruise when they think they should win. Psychologically they seem incapable of convincing themselves that they should play at or near their best level in every game. Is that the reason their overall record against New Zealand sides is good, but against Aussie sides is pretty poor? We need that head doctor…
    The Stormers just seemed tactically very naive…

  • I must say something about this: for a while it has seemed as if that amongst media scribes, pundits and fans there is an idea that we lose against New Zealand sides because they have better tactics. While I concede that our tactics have sometimes been mind-bogglingly one dimensional, I find it even more mind-boggling that no one seems to recognise that the New Zealand sides beat us so regularly because they simply have players with better skills and they have better depth (i.e. more players with those better skills). To me that would say they have better systems and particularly systems that equip their players better, prepare them better across the board in almost all very facet of play, certainly in terms of ball skills, reading the game, athleticism, etc. Whatever else we do, we have to address that if we are going to catch up. And that, by the way, is not just about getting in a New Zealand skills coach (which I am not against) but adjusting our structures from the bottom (tiny tots playing tag rugby through our school system) all they way to the very top…

    chosen for one reason as how they fit as parts of a team.Our teams have many more dubious factors defining our make up,teamplayer not being on top of the list.
    Watching the highlights that Stormers game, Kolbe and Marais gave a master class in how not to defend, absolutely cringeworthy display, Marais would make a great touch rugby player

  • Anyone watch the Newcastle Vs Worcester game last night?

    I just had a feeling that the ref had rubbed Gary Gold the wrong way….When he blew his whistle for fulltime, Gary came marching onto the field and gave said ref an ear full.

    Worcester lost 16 – 14….After being camped in Newcastle’s half for the first 30mins. of the game, scoring zero points.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 103) : Ya’ think AC might be thinking of some of these Kings players for the Boks?

    Schreuder (cant remember the spelling) is by far the scrumming of the SA teams….Mapiempi (spelling again) is the pick of SA wings, Cronjé definitely not the worst pick at fh., and Cloete the only openside in SA doing the fetching role.

    If AC is able to look past reputation, then surely a few of these Kings guys deserve a call-up.

    New kids on the block leading the way in SA rugby….Thus far, everyone except the Kings and Lions deserve to be dropped from SR.

I mean I’m happy for the kings but I can’t stop thinking we could score even one measly push over try against these clowns. I hope Rob isn’t watching the score or the game. Seriously de motivating.

  • @benji (Comment 121) : not sure you buy him, its abit more nuanced than that in rugby, his gotta either be out of contract or have a escape clause or stormers agree to release him, but we compensate them to a degree (I guess that is buying). stormers are always more keen on there players leaving for europe instead of other unions

    they did let jonny kotze leave a year early to the bulls lol, what a mistake on his part lol his injured right now though, maybe he would have played had be been fit, still would have lost mostly
