The Blues take on the Rebels in this long weekend’s opening fixture. The Blues come off a good win over the Waratahs last weekend, where they demolished the Australian team in the first half. They will be hoping to dominate another Australian team and wrap up the game early on.

The Rebels will not go down without a fight, especially after their recent good run where they find themselves third on the Australian conference log, in their first season of Super Rugby! If the general Australian attitude is applied to this team, they will continue to strive for improvement.

I predict that the Blues will be too strong for the Melbourne side and run out comfortable winners.

Blues: 15. Isaia Toeava, 14. Joe Rokocoko, 13. Jared Payne, 12. Benson Stanley, 11. Rene Ranger, 10. Stephen Brett, 9. Alby Mathewson, 8. Peter Saili, 7. Luke Braid, 6. Jerome Kaino, 5. Ali Williams, 4. Anthony Boric, 3. John Afoa, 2. Keven Mealamu (Captain), 1. Tony Woodcock

Replacements: 16. Tom McCartney, 17. Tevita Mailau, 18. Filo Paulo, 19. Chris Lowrey, 20. Toby Morland, 21. Luke McAlister, 22. Lachie Munro

Rebels: 15. Julian Huxley, 14. Lachlan Mitchell, 13. Mark Gerrard, 12. Stirling Mortlock (Captain), 11. Cooper Vuna, 10. Daniel Cipriani, 9. Nick Phipps, 8. Gareth Delve, 7. Michael Lipman, 6. Jarrod Saffy, 5. Hugh Pyle, 4. Alister Campbell, 3. Greg Somerville, 2. Ged Robinson, 1. Rodney Blake

Replacements: 16. Heath Tessmann, 17. Laurie Weeks, 18. Hoani MacDonald, 19. Tim Davidson, 20. Richard Kingi, 21. James Hilgendorf, 22. Luke Rooney

  • Seem Hurricanes are only flying out to Durban now. They chose to spend the week in Cape Town.

    I would`ve thought the weather would be a lot better in Dbn this week? What could`ve put them off Dbn that they`d rather come to the Magical Mother City than go to the warmer climate?
