Super Rugby Champions
The Saracens of the south are certainly the Crusaders, a model of consistancy over the past few seasons. And although favourites I think they are still a very backable price. The New Zealand sides will again dominate the competition this year. The Hurricanes still have the most electric backline in the competition, even with losing a couple of players and head coach and will score hat fulls of tries but may end up conceding just as many with their weak forward pack.
The South African and Australian sides unfortunatly may still prove to be a cut below the all blacks at club level again
Canterbury Crusaders best price 5/2 (various bookmakers)
Top Try Scorer
As I said earlier, the Hurricanes will score bags of tries this season, and on the end of those tries could be one man. Now a fully fledged All Black Jordie Barrett being a full back standing at over 6ft and a player that glides across the ground without looking like he is moving oozes class. In this world cup year he will look to make that All Black 15 jersey his own
Jordie Barrett generally 33/1
We keep the Crusaders in as they are bound to be in the final, with NZ dominating the season again and joining them in the final I can the the Chiefs having a big year
Crusaders/Chiefs 16/1 (betfair/bet365)
Good luck all, and enjoy the fireworks that is the Super Rugby season.
I will also run weekly accas so keep an eye out for them
