M1. Lions v Jaguares
The Lions will be hard to beat here after their hard fought win over the Sharks. Those two teams look the goods from a South African point of view. The Jagures were competitive against the Stormers last weekend but discipline held them back again. They won't compete if they have further problems here.
M2. Ireland v Wales
Ireland have been strong in the Six Nations and they will fancy beating an up and down Wales side. Ireland have a good shot of winning the tournament so they can't afford to drop their bundle.
M3. Bulls v Hurricanes
The Bulls were off last weekend so they have their Super Rugby bow under John Mitchell. A lot is expected from them but they have the unenviable task of facing the Hurricanes. They might have a few big names missing and had a rough pre season in the coaching ranks, but the Hurricanes are favoured, albeit not strongly.
M4. Scotland v England
Last year these teams met under all sorts of expectation but England ran away with the Calcutta Cup. Scotland have improved further and should be competitive at Murrayfield. England are still fancied.
M5. Ospreys v Cheetahs
The Cheetahs have been quiet since the turn of the year and they face Ospreys who battled to knock over the Kings in Swansea last weekend. The Cheetahs are a better side and they may have the edge.
