Chiefs vs Hurricanes Tips 


This weekend of Super Rugby kicks off with a blockbuster fixture. It should be a very evenly contested game and with the handicap at two points in the hosts’ favour, the bookmakers think this could go either way.

While the Canes are certainly capable of winning in Hamilton, the Chiefs are unbeaten at home this season and the visitors have lost their last two away games. I am backing the Chiefs to win this match and cover the -2 handicap.

  • Chiefs have won 5 of their last 6 matches against the Hurricanes.
  • Chiefs have on their last 6 home matches.
  • Hurricanes have lost their last 2 away matches.
  • Hurricanes beat the Chiefs at home this season.

Head to Head


The Chiefs have won five of their last six against the Hurricanes. The Hurricanes win in that run did come just over a month ago, winning 36-23 on home soil.

Chiefs Form


The Chiefs have enjoyed a solid season to date, if not as spectacular as last season. They have won nine of their 12 games and currently sit fourth on the table.

The Hamilton-based outfit will certainly be looking to climb the table in the final two weeks of round robin action. They are safe in fourth, 11 points clear of fifth place, but only a point off the Brumbies and five off their opponents, the Hurricanes.

In order to move above the Canes this weekend, the Chiefs will have to win with a bonus point and deny the Hurricanes any points.

The Chiefs last defeat came in mid-April when they lost 36-23 at the Hurricanes. Since then, they have beaten the Waratahs, Western Force, Moana and the Rebels.

Chiefs Team News


(1-15): Aidan Ross, Samisoni Taukei'aho, George Dyer, Manaaki Selby-Rickit, Tupou Vaa'i, Simon Parker, Kaylum Boshier, Luke Jacobson (c), Cortez Ratima, Damian McKenzie, Etene Nanai Seturo, Quinn Tupaea, Anton Lienert Brown, Emoni Narawa, Shaun Stevenson

Subs: Tyrone Thompson, Jared Proffit, Sione Ahio, Naitoa Ah Kuoi, Wallace Sititi, Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, Josh Ioane, Rameka Poihipi

Hurricanes Form


The Hurricanes lead the Super Rugby table for much of the season but have slipped down to second in recent weeks. They have still won 10 of their 12 games and are just three points off the Blues at the top.

Two defeats in their last four games have cost them dearly. The Canes lost away to the Brumbies and Blues. They have, however, beaten the Waratahs and Moana last weekend.

The Wellington side will have to win this game and hope the Crusaders can beat the Blues in Canterbury if they want to go top this weekend.

Verdict

The Chiefs are backed to cover the -2 handicap in this Super Rugby fixture agaisnt the Hurricanes. There is value on the Chiefs to be winning in the half time/full time market considering their home form.
