Super Rugby: Chiefs and Brumbies look to make it four from four

There is a bumper week of sporting action to look forward to with Super Rugby, AFL, NRL and One Day International Cricket on the agenda.

We take a short break from the A-League this week with Matchday 22 set to resume on 31st March but there is still a jam-packed calendar to keep everyone entertained.

Week five of the Super Rugby campaign will take place with some bumper fixtures on the agenda, while the same can be said of week four in the NRL. 

The AFL season is now up and running and following an exciting opening round the fixtures will again come thick and fast in the week ahead.

There is also One Day International cricket to look forward to with the series between India and Australia on a knife edge. So let’s take a closer look at the week ahead.

Super Rugby: Chiefs to face Tahs

Super Rugby resumes on Friday with two games to look forward to. The Chiefs have got off to an electric start this season when 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 take on the fifth-placed Crusaders in the earlier game.

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 wrap up the action on Saturday before the fourth-place Blues and Force clash in the only game on Sunday.

Aussie Rules: Cats need to respond

Week two of the AFL season gets underway on Thursday night when Carlton entertain Geelong, who began their season with an opening round defeat against Collingwood.

The Cats are priced at 1.52 to bounce back with a win, while Carlton can be backed at 2.55

There is also one game on Friday night as Brisbane Lions look to bounce back from the mauling they suffered against Port Adelaide in week one.

It will be far from easy against Melbourne who won their opener against Western Bulldogs with ease and are priced at 1.95 to win.

On Saturday the day begins with a cracker of a game between Collingwood and Port Adelaide, before Adelaide Crows take on the Richmond Tigers. Then it is the turn of Western Bulldogs versus St Kilda and Fremantle versus North Melbourne to wrap up the day.

There are three games on Sunday with the Sydney Swans priced at 1.10 to beat Hawthorn, who can be backed at 7.00 to pull off an upset.

Essendon are at home to the Gold Coast Suns, while West Coast Eagles conclude the action in week two with a clash against Greater Western Sydney at Optus Stadium. The Eagles are priced at 2.02 to win with GWS 1.80.
