Super Rugby: Chiefs continue to dominate

Week five of the Super Rugby campaign continues this week with the Chiefs and Brumbies looking to continue their 100 percent start.

The Chiefs have got off to an electric start this season, winning all four of their opening games, and are priced at 2.87 to win the Grand Final.

They will be the hot fancies to make it five from five when they entertain a Waratahs side that have won just one game so far this season.

The Brumbies have also won four from four and will travel to the fifth-placed Crusaders in the earlier game on Friday.

There are three games on the Saturday with the Highlanders looking for just their second win of the season against Fijian Drua.

Moana Pasifika are aiming for their first win but have it all to do when they entertain the third-placed Hurricanes.

Rebels versus the Reds wraps up the action on Saturday before the fourth-place Blues and Force clash in the only game on Sunday.

It is a jam-packed week of action, so let's take a closer look at each game.

Crusaders v Brumbies (Friday, 17:05 AEST)

The Crusaders sit fifth on the ladder with two wins and two defeats from their opening four games but are priced at 1.16 to beat the second-placed Brumbies on Friday night.

They edged out the Blues by six points in a thriller last weekend and can take plenty of heart from that performance as they look to climb the ladder.

The Brumbies can be backed at 5.00 to pick up the win and confidence will be sky high after winning their opening four games. They have already won on the road at the Waratahs and Blues this season so will fancy their chances of turning over the Crusaders.

Waratahs v Chiefs (Friday, 19:35 AEST)

The Tahs have vowed to take a long, hard look in the mirror after suffering their third defeat in four games last weekend. They slipped to a 34-17 defeat against the Hurricanes when individual errors cost them badly. 

Captain Jake Gordon says they will need to cut them out if they are to have any chance of defeating the Chiefs, who are sitting pretty at the top of the ladder and head into the game on the back of a comfortable win over the Rebels.

The Chiefs are priced at 1.12 to win away from home, with the Waratahs available at 6.00.

Highlanders v Fijian Drua (Saturday, 14:35 AEST)

The Highlanders have been hit by a shocking injury list that has left them with 17 players in the treatment room. They still managed to edge out the Western Force at the weekend to pick up their first win of the season and will be hoping the injury list eases in the coming days.

Josh Dickson and Pari Pari Parkinson could be in line to return with the Highlanders priced at 1.33 to claim the spoils against 3.35 Fijian Drua, who lost by three points against the Rebels last start but have held their own this season with two wins from four games.

Moana Pasifika v Hurricanes (Saturday, 17:05 AEST)

Moana Pasifika sit at the bottom of the ladder with four straight losses, but two of the games against Fijian Drua and the Force have been very close.

The Brumbies did beat them 62-36 though, and they will be in for another tough test against the third-place Hurricanes on Saturday.

Pasifika can be backed at 7.50 to win, while The Hurricanes, who have suffered just the one defeat against the Blues this season, are 1.083 to triumph.

Rebels v Reds (Saturday, 19:35 AEST)

The Rebels have won just one game so far this season, but that did come on home soil against the Waratahs in week three and they will be hoping the backing of their own fans can get them over the line again.

The hosts are priced at 2.70 to win, while the Reds, who have won two from four, are available at 1.50.

Blues v Force (Sunday, 13:35 AEST)

The Blues have had a solid start to the season with two wins from four to sit in fourth spot on the ladder. However, both wins have been on the road so they are looking for their first home success of the campaign.

They may not get a better chance as the Force to do not travel well and victories outside of WA are few and far between.

The Force are a massive 10.00 to beat the Blues, who can be backed at 1.04.
