Chiefs vs Rebels Tips


The Chiefs will want to bounce back from defeat last week. They should be able to do that against a Rebels side that has struggled all season. The best bet in for the Chiefs to win by more than 18 points.

  • Chiefs have won 5 of their last 6 matches against the Rebels.
  • Chiefs have won 2 of their last 3 matches.
  • Rebels have lost by 18+ points in 2 of their last 3 matches.
  • Rebels have lost have lost 6 of their last 7 matches.
  • Rebels have a -84 points difference in their last 3 matches.

Head to Head


Chiefs have won five of their last six encounters against the Rebels. Their last meeting ended in a 27-14 away win for the Chiefs in 2017.

Chiefs Form


The Chiefs are fifth on the Super Rugby trans-Tasman table with two wins from their three matches. They are the only New Zealand side to lose a game in the opening three rounds.

In round one the Chiefs narrowly saw off the Western Force 20-19 before winning 40-19 at home to the Brumbies the following week. Last week the Chiefs suffered a 40-34 defeat against the Reds.

The Chiefs started slowly and with two thirds of the match gone, they were down by more than 20 points. A flurry of tries came but it was too late to get the much needed win.

Chiefs Team News


The Chiefs have agreed for this match to take place in Sydney so it isn’t the home game they were hoping for. That is because the Rebels can’t travel to New Zealand while Melbourne is in lockdown.

There has been no team news from the Chiefs as yet but they have no serious injury concerns.

Rebels Form


The Rebels are bottom of the Super Rugby trans-Tasman table with no points from their three matches. They have a -84 points difference in those games.

Most of that came in one match though as the Rebels lost 50-3 on the opening weekend to the Blues at home. That humiliation was followed by a 35-13 defeat at the Hurricanes.

Last week the Rebels put up a good fight in Dunedin against the Highlanders. It still wasn’t enough as they lost 42-27.

Rebels Team News


The Rebels have made just one change with Kevin Foote opting to recall flank Richard Hardwick.
