The Force chalked up a fourth win of the campaign away to the Reds last weekend, a second victory over the Queenslanders this season. The two other highlights came at home to the Kings and away to Jaguares and they finished Round 14 third best of the Australian sides, 11 points behind the Brumbies but just two behind the Waratahs. The Force have lost all four of their matches against New Zealand sides this season and they will want to forget the 55-6 hiding dished out by the Highlanders on this ground in Round 13. They did make the Chiefs work hard for a 17-6 win in Perth in Round 9 and earlier in the campaign they lost away to the Blues (24-15) and the Crusaders (45-17).

The Canes will have an eye on the earlier game between the Crusaders and Highlanders the outcome of which will tell us more about their chances of reeling in the Saders at the top of the NZ Conference. Coming into this round the gap was 11 points but the Canes had played one game fewer and if the Saders come unstuck earlier in the day, the door would be open to some degree especially as the Canes still have to host the Crusaders in Wellington. Two defeats this season came in local derby matches and the Canes have been foot perfect against overseas opposition.

The Hurricanes demolished the Force 41-6 and by six tries to zero when the Australian side visited Wellington last year. The Canes’ tries came from Dane Coles, James Marshall, TJ Perenara, Blade Thomson, Ngani Laumape and Ardie Savea. Five of them only came after the 50-minute mark as the Force tired.

Force full-back Marcel Brache has scored in each of his last two games for the Force and is definitely one to watch as he seems to be getting back to his best form. Solid under the high ball, with a good touch-finder and pace to burn, Brache is turning into a dangerous number 15.

Keep an eye on fit-again Beauden Barrett. He is undoubtedly the best fly-half in World Rugby at the moment. He possesses electric pace but also has the intelligence of when to use it to full effect. He is partly the reason why the Canes’ are such an effective counter-attacking side.

The Force have won four of their 12 matches this season against the Reds (twice), Kings and the Jaguares. Their losses have come against the Waratahs, Brumbies, Crusaders, Blues, Chiefs, Lions, Sharks and Highlanders.

The Hurricanes have won 10 of their 12 matches this season. They have beaten the Sunwolves, Rebels, Highlanders, Reds, Waratahs, Blues, Brumbies, Stormers, Cheetahs and Bulls while they have lost to the Chiefs and Crusaders.

The Hurricanes should make it nine out of nine against the Force. Hurricanes by 20.

Players List:
Force: 15 Dane Haylett-Petty, 14 James Verity-Amm, 13 Curtis Rona, 12 Bill Meakes, 11 Alex Newsome, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Michael Ruru, 8 Isi Naisarani, 7 Matt Hodgson (c), 6 Ross Haylett-Petty, 5 Adam Coleman, 4 Matt Philip, 3 Jermaine Ainsley, 2 Heath Tessmann, 1 Francois van Wyk.

Coming into this round of matches the Brumbies were nine points clear of the Waratahs and 11 better off than the Force in the Australian Conference with three rounds of fixtures for the Australian sides to fulfil. The Tahs face a tough trip to the Chiefs earlier on Saturday and after this the Force host the Hurricanes so in theory, the Brumbies could wrap the Conference up this weekend if other results go their way. This is their final home game with visits to the Reds and Chiefs to come after the internationals. The Brumbies won their first three Australian derby matches this season before they came unstuck at the Rebels in Melbourne in Round 8. That was the start of a four match losing stream but the Brumbies have bounced back really well in the last two rounds to win awkward looking away fixtures at the Kings and Jaguares.

That home win over the Brumbies is as good as it got for the Rebels. They did draw away at the Sharks a week after that win but five subsequent defeats have seen them add just one losing bonus point to their tally. Other Australian derby matches for the Rebels this season saw them go down 32-25 to the Tahs and 29-24 to the Reds in games staged in Melbourne and a Round 13 return with the Warartahs saw them beaten 50-23 in Sydney.

These sides met earlier in the season in Round Eight in what remains the Rebels’ only win of the season. A solitary Sefanaia Naivalu try as well as 14 points from the boot of Reece Hodge proved too much for the Brumbies, who scored through Jarrad Butler and a Henry Speight brace. Rebels won 19-17.

The Brumbies have won five of their 12 matches having beaten the Force, Waratahs, Reds, Kings and Jaguares while having lost to the Crusaders, Sharks, Highlanders, Rebels, Hurricanes, Blues and Lions.

The Rebels have lost 10 of their 12 games against the Blues, Hurricanes, Chiefs, Waratahs (twice), Highlanders, Kings, Lions, Reds and Crusaders. Besides that they have a win against the Brumbies and a draw with the Sharks.

Brumbies will avenge their Round Eight defeat. Brumbies by 10.

Players List:
Brumbies: 15 Tom Banks, 14 Henry Speight, 13 Tevita Kuridrani, 12 Kyle Godwin, 11 Aidan Toua, 10 Wharenui Hawera, 9 Joe Powell, 8 Jordan Smiler, 7 Chris Alcock, 6 Scott Fardy, 5 Sam Carter (c), 4 Rory Arnold, 3 Allan Alaalatoa, 2 Josh Mann-Rea, 1 Nic Mayhew.

Replacements: 16 Robbie Abel, 17 Faalelei Sione, 18 Leslie Leulua’Iali’I-Makin, 19 Tom Staniforth, 20 Jarrad Butler, 21 De Wet Roos, 22 Andrew Muirhead, 23 Nigel Ah Wong.

Rebels: 15 Reece Hodge, 14 Sefa Naivalu, 13 Tom English, 12 Mitch Inman, 11 Marika Koroibete, 10 Ben Volavola, 9 Nic Stirzaker (c), 8 Amanaki Mafi, 7 Colby Fainga’a, 6 Hugh Sinclair, 5 Lopeti Timani, 4 Steve Cummins, 3 Tyrel Lomax, 2 James Hanson, 1 Toby Smith.

The Chiefs were involved in a mighty battle with the Blues on a wet Auckland surface last weekend and in the end the scores were locked up at 16-16. The Chiefs subsequently dropped a place to fourth in the NZ Conference and their chances of catching the Crusaders at the top of the log are extremely remote given the gap is 14 points and the Chiefs have three matches remaining. The more realistic target now is to attain the most favourable route in the play offs and with the Africa Conferences settled and the Australian group heading that way too, the picture is becoming clearer. The Chiefs clash with the Canes in Wellington next up and after the internationals they finish up hosting the Brumbies.

The Waratahs were beaten 44-28 by the Highlanders in Dunedin last weekend and they are now nine points behind the Brumbies in the Australian Conference with three rounds of matches to go. The chances are they will need to win all three of their remaining games which also include a home fixture against Jaguares and a visit to the Force to have any hope of extending the season. This would appear the most difficult of those remaining tasks with the Tahs already having lost all four of their games against New Zealand opponents this season. Before last week’s loss to the Highlanders the Tahs had lost to the Blues (40-33) in Sydney, the Hurricanes (38-28) in Wellington and the Crusaders (41-22) in Sydney.

Back in 2016 a commanding 45-25 win for the Waratahs enabled them to tighten their grip on top spot in the Australian Conference. Israel Folau, wearing 13, and Michael Hooper each grabbed two tries in a six-try demolition in Sydney, with youngsters Andrew Kellaway and Jack Dempsey getting in on the act. The Chiefs also scored four tries, through Seta Tamanivalu, Aaron Cruden, Nathan Harris and Augustine Pulu, but the boot of Bernard Foley proved to be the difference as he kicked six conversions and a penalty.

The Waratahs have won six of the last seven meetings between these sides including each of the last three in a row. The Waratahs’ six victories in that run have come by an average margin of 13 points, including a 27-point win in Waikato in 2010, the Tahs’ biggest win in New Zealand, and the Chiefs third heaviest home defeat.

Despite losing the last time the Chiefs hosted the Waratahs, they’ve won four of their last six home games against the New South Wales side and haven’t lost consecutive home matches against them since 2002. The Chiefs lost their last home game (v Crusaders), but haven’t lost back-to-back home matches in a single season since 2011. The Waratahs have lost their last four games in New Zealand, three of those defeats coming by 10 points.

A backlash from the Chiefs and the end of the Waratahs’ recent streak is expected. Chiefs by 12.

Players List:
Chiefs: 15 Damian McKenzie, 14 Toni Pulu, 13 Anton Lienert-Brown, 12 Stephen Donald, 11 James Lowe, 10 Aaron Cruden (cc), 9 Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 8 Liam Messam, 7 Sam Cane (cc), 6 Mitchell Brown, 5 Brodie Retallick, 4 Dominic Bird, 3 Nepo Laulala, 2 Nathan Harris, 1 Kane Hames.

Replacements: 16 Liam Polwart, 17 Siegfried Fisi’ihoi, 18 Atu Moli, 19 Taleni Seu, 20 Mitchell Karpik, 21 Jonathan Taumateine, 22 Tim Nanai-Williams, 23 Solomon Alaimalo.

Waratahs: 15 Israel Folau, 14 Taqele Naiyaravoro, 13 Rob Horne, 12 David Horwitz, 11 Cameron Clark, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Jake Gordon, 8 Michael Wells, 7 Michael Hooper (c), 6 Ned Hanigan, 5 Will Skelton, 4 Dean Mumm, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tolu Latu, 1 Tom Robertson.

Replacements: 16 Damien Fitzpatrick, 17 Paddy Ryan, 18 Angus Taavao, 19 David McDuling, 20 Jed Holloway, 21 Jack Dempsey, 22 Matt Lucas, 23 Bryce Hegarty.

It’s now 13 wins from 13 outings this season for the Saders who have this game followed by a visit to the Hurricanes in Wellington after the internationals to come. Despite the foot perfect record they haven’t shaken off the Lions when it comes to securing top spot overall so there can be no let up despite holding an 11 point advantage in the New Zealand Conference. The Saders won their four earlier New Zealand derby matches this season by margins of three to nine points. The narrowest of those wins came in the first meeting with the Highlanders when the Crusaders launched a late fightback to pinch the win. Two of the derby matches were staged in Christchurch and they saw the Blues (33-24) and the Hurricanes (20-12) leave empty handed.

The Highlanders have put together a nine match winning streak and all bar one of those victories came against sides outside of New Zealand. They beat the Waratahs 44-28 in Dunedin last weekend, a result which saw them move into third spot in the New Zealand Conference although they have played one game more than both the Chiefs (4th) and the Hurricanes (2nd). In New Zealand derby matches this season the Highlanders beat the Blues at home and away but in addition to losing the first clash with the Saders they also went down (24-15) to the Chiefs in a home game and they were thumped by the Canes (41-15) in Wellington.

These sides met in Round 2 and a stunning fightback helped the Crusaders to secure a 30-27 win down in Dunedin. This after the Highlanders led 27-6 early in the second half. Seta Tamanivalu snatched the win with a try in the game’s closing stages. The Crusaders were also awarded a penalty try and their other five-pointers were scored by David Havili and Whetu Douglas. Waisake Naholo scored two tries for the Highlanders and Gareth Evans also dotted down.

The Crusaders are the only unbeaten team left in the competition and have won all 13 their previous matches. In their most recent matches, in the month of May, the beat the Bulls, Hurricanes, Chiefs and Rebels.

The Highlanders are currently on a nine-match winning streak and claimed narrow wins over the Cheetahs and Bulls on their South African tour at the start of May before beating the Western Force in Perth and the Waratahs at home last weekend.

Like their previous encounter, this one should be a humdinger and don’t be surprised if it also goes down to the wire. We’re backing the Crusaders to take it by three points again!

Players List:
Crusaders: 15 David Havili, 14 Seta Tamanivalu, 13 Jack Goodhue, 12 Ryan Crotty, 11 George Bridge, 10 Richie Mo’unga, 9 Mitchell Drummond, 8 Jordan Taufua, 7 Matt Todd, 6 Heiden Bedwell-Curtis, 5 Sam Whitelock (c), 4 Luke Romano, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Codie Taylor, 1 Joe Moody.

Replacements: 16 Ben Funnell, 17 Wyatt Crockett, 18 Michael Alaalatoa, 19 Quinten Strange, 20 Jed Brown, 21 Bryn Hall, 22 Mitchell Hunt, 23 Israel Dagg.

Highlanders: 15 Ben Smith (cc), 14 Waisake Naholo, 13 Malakai Fekitoa, 12 Rob Thompson, 11 Richard Buckman, 10 Marty Banks, 9 Aaron Smith, 8 Luke Whitelock, 7 James Lentjes, 6 Gareth Evans, 5 Tom Franklin, 4 Alex Ainley, 3 Siate Tokolahi, 2 Liam Coltman, 1 Daniel Lienert-Brown.

Replacements: 16 Ash Dixon (cc), 17 Aki Seiuli, 18 Siosuia Halanukonuka, 19 Joe Wheeler, 20 Elliot Dixon, 21 Kayne Hammington, 22 Lima Sopoaga, 23 Matt Faddes.

The Rebels have cobbled together just eight log points this season from one win (home to the Brumbies), one draw (away to the Sharks) and a couple of losing bonus points (home to the Tahs and the Reds. They have already met the other four New Zealand sides and they were beaten of sight by the Highlanders in Dunedin and the Canes in Wellington whilst the Blues won 56-18 at this stadium back in Round 1. The closest they have come to a NZ side came in Round 4 when the Chiefs were here, a game the Rebels lost 27-14.

The Crusaders are threatening to go through the whole of the regular season with a 100% record. After this they have two tough tests at home to the Highlanders and away to the Hurricanes but they keep clearing every hurdle put in their way, most recently local derby matches at home to the Canes (20-12) and last week’s 31-24 win over the Chiefs in Suva. The Saders have beaten four other Australian sides this season including bonus point wins at home to the Force (45-17) and away to the Waratahs (41-22) but early in the campaign they had to work harder to see off the Brumbies in Christchurch (17-13) and the Reds in Brisbane (22-20).

It was a procession for the Crusaders in their 2016 game as they ran in 13 tries to win 85-26. Sam Whitelock, Ryan Crotty (2), Scott Barrett, Alex Hodgman, Nemani Nadolo, Johnny McNicholl (3), Codie Taylor (2), Pete Samu and Matt Todd all crossed the whitewash with Richie Mo’unga kicking 14 points and Nadolo six via conversions. In reply, Nic Stirzaker, Reece Hodge, Culum Retallick and Sefanaia Naivalu were the Rebels’ try-scorers on a forgetful evening in Christchurch as they were chasing shadows for much of the game.

Still just the one victory for the Rebels this season as they have now lost nine and drawn one of their fixtures. Their latest loss came at the hands of the Waratahs last week when they suffered a 50-23 away defeat. They leak on average six tries per game, scoring one.

In stark contrast the Crusaders made it 12 wins from 12 last Friday against an often tricky opponent in the Chiefs. That 31-24 result put them 11 points clear of the Hurricanes and Chiefs but both have a game in hand. They have scored 65 tries in 2017, which is five per game.

No doubts about this call, the unstoppable visitors should run out easy winners at AAMI Park on Saturday. Crusaders by 35.

Players list:
Rebels: 15 Ben Volavola, 14 Sefa Naivalu, 13 Tom English, 12 Reece Hodge, 11 Marika Koroibete, 10 Jackson Garden-Bachop, 9 Nic Stirzaker (c), 8 Amanaki Mafi, 7 Colby Fainga’a, 6 Sean McMahon, 5 Lopeti Timani, 4 Steve Cummins, 3 Tyrel Lomax, 2 James Hanson, 1 Toby Smith.
