Super Rugby Round 8

Alright.


Here we go.


Make rugby great again.


We're short on time this week, so I'll keep it brief.


Round 8 of the Super Rugby AU series gets us our re-match between the top of the table Reds and the ACT Brumbies.


Superman vs Lex Luther, not sure who is who.


Oh, and there's another game on Friday night as well.


Melbourne Rebels ($1.27) vs Western Force ($3.95)


Rebels by 15.


Queensland Reds ($1.78) vs ACT Brumbies ($2.09)


This is the juicy one, the one we're all waiting for.


Last time they met, we all know what happened, Jordan Petaia scores a last minute try to give the Reds a famous victory.



If there's not 20,000 @ Suncorp this Saturday night then there's something seriously wrong. Local club rugby returns on Saturday, surely it's a case of getting on the cans at your local club before a night out @ Suncorp Stadium.


Team changes and movements?


Not surprisingly, both teams fairly stable although I am surprised the Reds backline has remained the way it is.


Real surprised.


The Brumbies forward pack is at full strength, so much so, Scott Sio is on the bench - if they're going to win it'll be on the back of a dominant pack @ set piece.


A high scoring contest last time between these two foes, it was 40-38 in the end to the Reds.


Don't think we'll get that many points on Saturday night.


Head and heart say Reds here, if they win they'll secure a home grand final I believe - is that right?


Either team will win this by 6 points, it'll be close.


I might take the Reds to win but Brumbies leading @ halftime for a bit of value at $7.50.


This'll be a belter, Reds by 4.
