RUGBY 5 SATURDAY 15 FEBRUARY POOL 1
M1. Sunwolves v Chiefs
The Sunwolves had last weekend off to reflect on their amazing win over the Rebels in Week 1. The Chiefs come to town and they look strong. This should be a good win for the Chiefs to remain unbeaten.
M2. Hurricanes v Sharks
This is a good test for the Sharks. They were excellent against the Highlanders last Friday to take a full haul of points. The Hurricanes are home after a bad loss in Cape Town in Week a before a surprise win in Buenos Aires last Saturday. It's a long way home for them. The Sharks will believe they can win. If they perform the way they did last weekend, the Sharks can win.
M3. Brumbies v Highlanders
The safe option would be to fancy the Highlanders. The Brumbies seem to be the top Aussie side again but this will not be easy against a smarting Highlanders outfit.
M4. Lions v Stormers
The form these teams are in couldn't more different. The Lions won last weekend but they took on a very bad Reds side. The Stormers are yet to concede a point! The Stormers look like they have the game to win. Expect them to win.
M5. Jaguares v Reds
The Jaguares should bounce back. The Reds look like they are nowhere. This is vital for the Jaguares because they head on a tough tour around the planet soon.
RUGBY 5 SATURDAY 15 FEBRUARY POOL 2
M1. Leinster v Cheetahs
If this was in Bloemfontein the Cheetahs would be tipped. It is in cold Ireland and Leinster dont lose often at home. Leinster are expected to win.
M2. Scarlets v Edinburgh
Edinburgh are having a good season. They have some international callups but nothing totally disruptive. Scarlets try hard but they lack killer instinct.
M3. Harlequins v London Irish
Despite the plucky nature of Irish, they take on a confidence Harlequins side who have turned on the style in the last few weeks. This is a derby and there shouldn't be much between them but Quins have found their voices and should win more.
M4. Worcester v Bath
There should be nothing to choose between these sides who have little between them on the log. It is always wise to follow home ground advantage but it wont be one-way traffic for Worcester.
M5. Connacht v Cardiff
Both teams are five wins from ten matches. Connacht have less disruptions and they are always tough to beat in Ireland. Cardiff have had a wobbly season. They are capable but not always willing.
