The Waratahs will be out for revenge when they take on the Brumbies in their Australian derby in Sydney on Saturday.

The home side and their Canberra-based counterparts finished as their country’s top teams in last year’s tournament but the Brumbies had the satisfaction of finishing at the top of the Australian conference – three points ahead of the ‘Tahs – and they also beat the 2014 champions in both their matches in 2016.

The Waratahs have won 13 of their previous 16 home games against the Brumbies, though were pipped in a 26-20 loss in the last such fixture which was also played in Sydney.

Although the tournament is still in its infancy, both sides are currently amongst the also rans in the standings and are yet to deliver a convincing performance in the competition.

The Waratahs are back in Australia after a disastrous tour to South Africa in which they conceded nearly a one hundred points in their defeats to the
Lions and Sharks.

The Brumbies, meanwhile head into this clash after finally registering their first win of the campaign against the Western Force last week but they had to dig deep as they did not see of their rivals from Australia’s west coast.

Despite it being early in the season, Waratahs prop Sekope Kepu admitted there will be a lot on the line against the Brumbies.

“It’s a massive game, it’s one of those one’s you really look forward to going up against guys you know at a national level,” he said.

“They (Brumbies) bring massive experience, it’s going to be a challenge.  We’ve got to be on top of our game, go out and play our game.

“In the first three games we haven’t played to our full potential. We’ve got to lead the way as a front row.  In a way it’s something that I’m really looking to.”

Brumbies hooker Josh Mann-Rea echoed Kepu’s sentiments and predicted a fierce battle.

“It’s the Local Derby. They have the two losses and we’re coming off a win. There is a lot to play for so it’s going to be a fierce encounter,” he said.

“Thiss week is a very special week for the Brumbies. Everyone gets pretty excited about playing the fellas up the road.

“This week everyone is a little more amped and training is more physical so it’s very exciting.”

The Hurricanes welcome a rejuvenated Highlanders side to Westpac Stadium on Saturday in what should be a close game.

It had been a poor start for Tony Brown’s men after opening defeats to the Chiefs and Crusaders but they got their first win last week, over the Blues, which would have lifted a monkey off their back. But they now face a ‘Canes side eager to bounce back from their own loss.

That defeat to the Chiefs was the Hurricanes’ first of 2017 – after cakewalks against the Sunwolves and Rebels – and one would expect them to respond at home. On paper they boast a stronger XV and should get back to winning ways in a result that would hurt the Highlanders.

Despite not having Nehe Milner-Skudder and Blade Thomson the Hurricanes can call on Jordie Barrett and Callum Gibbins, who will perform to a high standard. One feels that for the Highlanders, that guarantee is tougher to give for fly-half Fletcher Smith and flanker Dillon Hunt.

In the past though these games have regularly gone down to the wire, with nine of the last ten meetings decided by a margin of no greater than the value of a converted try. Looking further back, 16 of the last 17 games have been won by 12 points or less, which is some record.

What will give the Highlanders hope of causing a shock on Saturday is that they have won on five of their last seven visits to Wellington. But this time around they will take on a Hurricanes side that has won their last seven games at home, the longest streak in their history and the equal longest current streak of any team in the competition (Lions). Put simply they’ve created a rugby fortress at Westpac Stadium.

While the Highlanders are strong on their travels – winning their last three regular season games away from home – one feels the challenge of defeating a wounded ‘Canes outfit without talismanic figures such as Lima Sopoaga and Waisake Naholo will see them come up short.

Two teams in contrasting form meet in Melbourne on Friday as the Rebels host the Chiefs in an intriguing Super Rugby clash at AAMI Park.

The Rebels’ Round 3 bye week arguably came at the perfect time for them to look at themselves after two heavy losses to New Zealand sides.

But their return to action won’t get any easier as they face the form team in the competition, the Chiefs, who have won three on games in a row.

Indeed it’s been an impressive start from Dave Rennie’s side as despite several leaving the Hamilton franchise at the end of the season, they seem a happy camp that can possibly go all the way. Departing half-backs Tawera Kerr-Barlow and Aaron Cruden have been two standouts.

In truth everyone’s going nicely so far for the two-time Super Rugby champions but Rennie is keen to rotate this week as Cruden moves to the bench, with Damian McKenzie at fly-half and the dangerous Shaun Stevenson coming in at 15. Hooker Sabastian Siataga also gets a start.

As mentioned, the form book suggests a Chiefs victory and the fact they have won four of the five previous meetings between the sides adds weight to that. Add in the Rebels having conceded 212 points in their last three games with New Zealand teams and the Chiefs are favourite.

Furthermore, the Rebels last snatched a win against a Kiwi outfit way back in Round 13 of 2015 (vs Blues), losing seven such games since.

The Chiefs in contrast have won on three of their last four trips to Australia, including a 50-5 victory over the Reds on their last visit in Round 16 of 2016, with the prospect of McKenzie at fly-half throwing in that extra bit of excitement over how they could perform.

Yes, they are without James Lowe on the wing, but there is sufficient quality, confidence and experience to see them come out on top in Melbourne.

The last time these teams met: The Chiefs got their revenge for a 2015 loss with a 36-15 victory in Hamilton last year. First-half tries from Seta Tamanivalu, Nathan Harris, Toni Pulu and Aaron Cruden set them on their way before Andrew Horrell made sure of the win in the second period. For the Rebels, Mike Harris and Reece Hodge went over after the turnaround to give the scoreline a touch of respectability.

The Blues will hope to make up ground on the Crusaders when they travel to Christchurch on Friday in Super Rugby.

Tana Umaga’s side are not bottom of the New Zealand Conference – that surprisingly belongs to the Highlanders – but after the way they tore apart the Rebels in Round 1 expectations around the team have peaked and since subsided.

They might just fancy an upset however this weekend heading to AMI Stadium given the litany of injuries suffered by the Crusaders, the latest of which concerning Israel Dagg sees the All Black ruled out for six weeks.

That has left the Crusaders with a youthful backline which includes match-winning hero Mitch Hunt, who stepped up to see off the Reds with that late penalty in Brisbane for a 22-20 win

Coping without the likes of Dagg, Seta Tamanivalu and Richie Mo’unga is a tough ask for a young group, which puts the onus on the All Blacks tight five, spearheaded by Sam Whitelock and Owen Franks.

Everything about their season so far has been rock solid, from finishing well in the top half in most of Opta’s statistical categories and leading the way for the most offloads in the competition as well.

Their defence however will need to be excellent against a dangerous Blues side featuring Augustine Pulu’s sniping breaks and the talent of Rieko Ioane in midfield.

That said, the Crusaders have every right to feel confident about their chances. The Crusaders have won their last five games against the Blues, the longest winning streak of either side in the history of the fixture.

And they have won seven of their last eight games on home turf, scoring an average of 5.4 tries per game in that span.

The last time these teams met: Ihaia West snatched a late losing bonus point for the Blues in a 21-26 home defeat, with Mo’unga’s boot playing a key role as he finished with 16 points off the tee. Nemani Nadolo and Andy Ellis both scored for the Crusaders, while West and Moala both crossed for the Blues.

The Jaguares will be seeking a first home win of the season when they take on last year’s finalists the Lions in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

High hopes for the Argentine franchise in 2016 never produced the play-off appearance many predicted on the back of Argentina’s dominant run at the Rugby World Cup, but the early signs in year two are that everything is beginning to click into place for Raul Pérez and his experienced squad.

Even without a high number of important players – Nicolás Sánchez was a welcome returnee last weekend – the Jaguares came away from their two-match tour of South Africa with five points on the table, keeping the pressure on Africa 2 Conference leaders the Lions.

Win on Saturday with a try bonus point and the Jaguares could go top, which would be fair reward for a bright start to the new season where they appear to have more balance in their approach.

The vibrant attacking rugby is still there, and always will be with Joaquín Tuculet and Santiago Cordero sniffing for opportunities from the back, but the Jaguares have made early strides when it comes to their decision-making, not always opting for the ‘Hollywood’ pass when safer, more direct options are available.

Factor in the future returns of Martín Landajo, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Juan Martín Hernández and so on, and a big year undoubtedly awaits second time around after last year’s false start.

Were the Lions at full strength then they would unquestionably be favourites for Saturday’s game, even away in Argentina, after blowing off the cobwebs in last weekend’s demolition of the Waratahs.

However without a number of key starters the outlook for this fixture changes significantly. Johan Ackermann has opted for youth in his selection, handing starts in the backline to Shaun Reynolds, 21, at fly-half, along with 23-year-old centre Jacques Nel.

The absense of Franco Mostert, Elton Jantjies, Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Lionel Mapoe and more is undoubtedly an early setback, handing the advantage to the hosts.

Not that the Lions aren’t capable of a surprise, but nine changes plus a starting debut for tighthead prop Johannes Jonker turns the trip to Argentina into a tough prospect.
