Super Rugby: Brumbies with best chance to reach semis

After the rigours of the regular season, it’s the business end of the Super Rugby Pacific campaign as the Brumbies, Reds and Waratahs look to progress to the semi-finals.

The Tahs face a tough trip to Auckland to face the Blues, while the Reds arguably have the most formidable challenge as they travel to the table-topping Chiefs. 

That leaves the Brumbies as the only Australian side with a home draw in the quarter-finals, while the other last-eight clash sees Fijian Drua travel to Canterbury to face the Crusaders. 

Tahs face mighty challenge in Auckland

OddsBlues 1.083, Waratahs 7.50

The Waratahs will have to produce their performance of the season if they are to reach the semi-finals, as they prepare to travel to Eden Park to face the Blues. 

Coach Darren Coleman saw his side suffer a 55-21 loss in their last away game against the Blues on 22nd April. The Tahs did follow that heavy defeat in Auckland up with four-straight wins over the Highlanders, Reds, Rebels and Fijian Drua to reach the quarter-finals. 

A 33-24 defeat last time out against Moana Pasifika, their first and only win of the season, in Sydney last weekend won’t have helped confidence going into this one against the Blues. The Line market looks to be heavily in favour of the hosts, with the Blues at 1.91 to win with -17.5 points.  

Reds face Kiwi test of their own

OddsChiefs 1.062, Reds 8.50

The Reds face a daunting task of their own in the quarter-finals as they get ready to face a Chiefs side that suffered just one defeat in the entire regular season. 

What will give the Reds hope is that it was they who inflicted the Chiefs’ only loss of the campaign so far, thanks to a 25-22 victory on 22nd May. 

Reds head coach Brad Thorn will be looking for the same heroics this weekend as they seek a place in the semi-finals. 

Considering they won on their last trip to Hamilton, the Reds with +19.5 in the Line market are worthy of consideration at 1.91.  

Brumbies hoping home advantage counts

OddsBrumbies 2.05, Hurricanes 1.78

The only Aussie side with a home quarter-final, the Brumbies will be hoping the atmosphere at GIO Stadium can help carry them over the line against the Hurricanes on Saturday night. 

Stephen Larkham's side should take heart from the fact they were edged out 32-27 when these sides last met on 28th April in Wellington. 

Back on home turf in Canberra, the Brumbies look the most capable of the Australian sides to make it to the last four, with a victory for the hosts available at 2.05
