My Tips:

Crusaders V Sharks - the shock loss to the Reds would have fired up the Crusaders. With Richie coming off the bench and Crusaders playing at home they should be too good for the Sharks - Crusaders 13+
Stormers V Brumbies - Stormers are looking great this season, winning both their games so far, expect them to go 3 and 0 and beat the battling Brumbies. Stormers 1-12
Hurricanes V Lions - King Carlos returns to NZ and I will be in the crowd to welcome him back. Hurricanes should be far too strong and go 3 and 0. Hurricanes 13+
Reds V Blues - Reds coming off a great win over the Crusaders should continue on their winning ways and beat the Blues who have only really looked good in their first 40mins of rugby in game 1. Reds 1-12
Force V Chiefs - 3rd away game in a row for the Chiefs, they've been hurt by a few injuries but have nothing on the Force injury list. Chiefs 1-12
Cheetahs V Highlanders - Cheetahs coming off a great win last round will have home advantage over the Highlanders, a team who hasn't yet won a game. Tough to call but going with Highlanders 1-12.
Bulls V Waratahs Bulls will spank the Waratahs like they did to the Brumbies last week. Bulls 13+

Crusaders V Sharks - Crusaders should fire in this one. the return of McCaw will help alot and look to see him come on for the start of the second half
Stormers V Brumbies - Think it will be a boring game .
Hurricanes V Lions Lions will play well , Will be a high scorer Lions getting a couple of Bonus points again
Reds V Blues Reds will be a one game wonder imo Blues to win in last mintue .
Force V Chiefs Chiefs to smash
Cheetahs V Highlanders Close game with the Higlanders losing just once again...
Bulls V Waratahs Bulls to continue their winning streak

Crusaders: Jared Payne, Sean Maitland, Robbie Fruean, Ryan Crotty, Zac Guildford, Dan Carter, Andy Ellis, Thomas Waldrom, George Whitelock, Kieran Read (captain), Brad Thorn, Sam Whitelock, Ben Franks, Ti'i Paulo, Wyatt Crockett. Reserves: Quentin MacDonald, Owen Franks, Joe Wheeler, Richie McCaw, Kahn Fotuali'i, Adam Whitelock, Colin Slade.

__________________________________________________________________
Richie is back! but only on the bench. Ross got "injured" in training so Brad Thorn comes off the bench to start. Also Crockett will start too.

Sharks haven't beaten the Crusaders in Christchurch before.

Just bought my tickets for Ballymore on Saturday Very Happy. We are on the hill haha, last time I was at Ballymore I wasnt old enough for it so im looking forward to that Razz.
Cant wait for Saturday though!

Oh and my other tips for the games -
Crusaders 13+ - I think theyll come out firing after their horrible performance up here last week and smash the sorry Sharks.
Brumbies 1-12 - This could the one of the games of the round, I think it will be one of those games that is won on the siren with a kick or a try to the Brumbies.
Canes 1-12 - The Lions did themselves proud last week coming back from that huge defecit to nab a bonus point but I think the travel will take it out of them. Theyll still put up a fight though.
Chiefs 1-12 - I think this will be another step too far for the depleted Force. The Chiefs are there to be got though, this being the last leg of their tour to SA and Aus.
Cheetahs 1-12 - Another good victory to the Cheetahs here I think. Highlanders will still be winless after week 3.
Bulls 13+ - This could get ugly for the boring Waratahs.

Blues: Paul Williams, Joe Rokocoko, Rene Ranger, Benson Stanley, Rudi Wulf, Stephen Brett, Alby Mathewson, Peter Saili, Serge Lilo, Jerome Kaino, Anthony Boric, Kurtis Haiu, Charlie Faumuina, Keven Mealamu (captain), John Afoa. Reserves: Tom McCartney, Tony Woodcock, Filo Paulo, Viliami Ma'afu, Chris Smylie, Daniel Kirkpatrick, Lachie Munro/George Pisi.




Couple of changes to this side. Rene Ranger moves into center in replacement for Toeava. Faumuina will start ahead of Woodcock.

HURRICANES 1. John Schwalger 2. Andrew Hore (captain) 3. Neemia Tialata 4. Bryn Evans 5. Jason Eaton 6. Michael Paterson 7. Karl Lowe 8. Rodney So’oialo 9. Piri Weepu 10. Willie Ripia 11. David Smith 12. Ma’a Nonu 13 Conrad Smith 14. Tamati Ellison 15. Cory Jane Reserves: 16. Dane Coles 17. Jacob Ellison 18. Nick Crosswell 19. Scott Waldrom 20. Tyson Keats 21. Aaron Cruden 22. Andre Taylor




Now that is a great looking side! Karl Lowe gets a starting spot! as does Rodney. I reckon they are going to thrash the Lions with Lowe putting in a man of the match performance and cementing the starting role for the rest of the season, look for him to dominate the breakdowns all night Very Happy

Haha is ok to show some bias. I mean look at your avatar haha, they've got no chance!

Yea surprised by that move, but good for me. Faumuina may get the starting spot for my manager side.

Woodcock isn't 100 percent yet so they are giving him time to get back up to speed. Only problems I have with Hurricanes 15 is Paterson and Evans

Yea dont know why they are starting Paterson, especially at 6! Evans is no surprise, but I would have liked to see Broadhurst again.

Thats a good looking 15 for us. Great to see Greg Holmes back after injury, he went pretty good last week when he came on I thought so hopefully its the same this week.
Hopefully the loss of Big Kev wont but a dampener on the rest of the season coz this Reds team is going places this year I think.
Cant wait for Saturday Very Happy.

I actually was really impressed by Paterson's performance at 6 last weekend, while summarily unimpressed with Broadhursts - so all in all I agree with the whole lineup for the Canes.

can't see as to why you wouldnt support a NZ side.. but then again weren't you the one nagging on about your hatred towards you countries national rugby team.

on topic with the Sharks they have been a huge disappointment so far and for a side that has quite a lot of Test players and supposedly having the worlds best captain they shouldnt be playing so poorly. They started off well against the Crusaders, gaining good territory and looked threatening to score an early try. Their scrum looked very weak and they weren't able to capitalise on some dangerous attacking situations early on. Ruan Pienaar was very disappointing, his passing was very inaccurate at times and his kicking game was below par. Overall he just lacks assurance at number 10.

Already been over this with Rozza and Hendo.

I do support a NZ side though.
