Hurricanes vs Chiefs Tips


This should be a very tight affair and the bookmakers agree with a one-point handicap given. The Chiefs have a good record in this fixture, winning their last five, but the Canes have won six on the bounce this season. I’m backing the hosts to cover the +1 handicap.

Head to Head


Chiefs have won their last five matches against the Hurricanes.

Hurricanes Form


The Hurricanes are second on the table on 27 points but have a game in hand on the Blues who are top. The Canes are the only unbeaten side left in the competition after winning all six games to date.

It has been a superb start to the season for the Hurricanes. They had a week off last weekend after beating the Highlanders 47-12 the week before. The Canes also thrashed the Rebels 54-28 in March.

Hurricanes Injuries & Team News


The Canes had a bye last week so should be fresh to go this time around with a full-strength squad.

Chiefs Form


The Chiefs have not made the kind of dominant start as they did in 2023, but with five wins from seven, they are still sitting in a strong position.

Other than their two losses, the Chiefs have been pretty convincing this season. The defeat to the Reds in round three was a surprise and two weeks ago they lost away to the Crusaders, a team who had lost five in a row.

Last week the Chiefs however bounced back against Moana, winning the game 68-12 at home.

Chiefs Injuries & Team News


After resting some players last weekend, the Chiefs are expected to return to their strongest side.

Verdict

I am backing the Hurricanes to cover the +1 handicap with a seventh straight win in Super Rugby.
