Super Rugby: Kiwis tests await Brumbies and Waratahs

Saturday offers up three games from Super Rugby with the Brumbies making the trip across The Tasman to face the Highlanders, while the Waratahs host the Blues in Sydney.

Teams are still feeling their way into this new season and Saturday offers up good opportunities to see how the Brumbies and Waratahs rate against some of the best players New Zealand has to offer.

Brumbies head to the Highlanders

. What: Highlanders v Brumbies
. Where: Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin
. When: 13:35 (AEST), Saturday 16th March 2024
. How to watch: Stan Sports
. Odds: Highlanders 2.00, Brumbies 1.82

With both the Brumbies and the Highlanders sitting on nine points after their first three respective games, there has been little to choose from between these sides in this early stage of the campaign.

There is little to choose between the teams in the result market either, with the Brumbies slight favourites at 1.82 against the 2.00 Highlanders.

The Brumbies do have the better recent record between these teams, having won both of their last two encounters against the Highlanders.

However, there should be no discounting the Highlanders, who are on a three-game winning run against Australian opposition, while the Brumbies have lost their last two matches against Kiwi opposition.

A tight encounter is fully expected in this one at Forsyth Barr Stadium, with the Brumbies available at 1.91 with -1.5 in the Line market, while under 55.5 total points is on offer at 1.91.

Big guns return for Waratahs trip

. What: Waratahs v Blues
. Where: Allianz Stadium, Sydney
. When: 18:35 (AEST), Saturday 16th March 2024
. How to watch: Stan Sports
. Odds: Waratahs 3.60, Blues 1.30

The Waratahs face their third consecutive game against Kiwi opposition on Saturday as they prepare to go head-to-head with the Blues at Allianz Stadium.

After a 37-24 win over the Crusaders and a 23-21 defeat to the Highlanders, the Waratahs have shown they can hold their own against some of the best players New Zealand has to offer.

The Blues will be boosted by the return of three All Blacks to the fold, with Hoskins Sotutu, Caleb Clarke and Ofa Tu’ungafasi all back in the starting lineup to face the Tahs.

With two wins in their first three games of the campaign, it has been a solid start to the campaign for the Blues, who are 1.30 favourites to come away from Sydney with the spoils.

Unsurprisingly, the Blues are such a short price for the win, given the Auckland outfit have won all of their last nine games against the Waratahs.

Head coach Darren Coleman knows his side will be up against it but their win over reigning champions the Crusaders earlier this season has shown what they are capable of.

The Tahs are available at 3.60 to claim the win at Allianz Stadium and are 1.91 with +8.5 in the Line market against this strong Blues side.
