Currie Cup

Western Province vs Pumas 

To Win
Western Province
Draw
Pumas


Handicap
Western Province
Pumas 

John Dobson has chosen a very strong outfit for this encounter. Siya Kolisi returns to play in the Currie Cup for the first time in 5 years and  Sergeal Petersen also starts and that combo will add power and pace respectively to what is already a star studded side. The Pumas on the other hand know that a loss means they are out of the tournament so they’ll be desperate.

Phaka Prediction: Western Province to win by 15 points.

Sharks XV vs Free State Cheetahs

To WinSharks
Draw
Free State


Handicap
Sharks
Free State 


The Cheetahs suffered a shock defeat at home to the Lions last week and they go to Durban determined to stamp their mark in the competition. You would expect the Cheetahs to be dominant because this is their PRO14 side. The Sharks however know that another loss at home will put them under enormous pressure going forward. So this will be a scrap to the bitter end. Even though the Sharks are the heavy underdogs I think they can cause an upset.

Phaka Prediction:  Sharks to win by 4 points.

Golden Lions vs Blue Bulls 
Saturday 17:15

To Win
Golden Lions 

Draw
Blue Bulls

Handicap
Golden Lions
Blue Bulls


I believe the Lions have been very lucky to win 3/3 so far. The Blue Bulls have been the most disappointing team in the competition however so this will be the easiest match of the season for the Lions. They will officially knock the Blue Bulls out of the Currie Cup.

Phaka Prediction: Golden Lions to win by 10 points.

Rugby Championship

Australia vs New Zealand
Saturday 11:45.

To Win
Australia 15/4
Draw 25/1
New Zealand 1/5


HandicapAustralia (+12.5) 9/10
New Zealand (-12.5) 9/10 


For the first time in the tournament Steve Hansen has picked his strongest available All Black side. He mentioned at the start of the tournament that his focus is the Bledisloe Cup. Let’s be honest, the Wallabies don’t have a team to compete here but will play with passion and pride and all of those emotionally fueled things because they are at home. Sadly, that won’t be enough.

Phaka Prediction: New Zealand to win by 12 points.

Argentina vs South Africa
Saturday 21:35

To Win
Argentina 2/1
Draw 22/1
South Africa 4/10

Handicap
Argentina (+6.5) 9/10
South Africa (-6.5) 9/10

Rassie Erasmus has kept the same 23 that drew to the All Blacks 2 weeks ago. He has only swapped his front row. The Boks will win this match but it will be close. Hopefully for their sake a win will be enough to be tournament champs for the first time since 2009.

Phaka Prediction: South Africa to win by 5 points.
