With the Super 14 season not far away I thought it was a good time to get the ladder predictions under way.

Here is mine:

1. Hurricanes
2. Crusaders
3. Force
4. Stormers
5. Reds
6. Sharks
7. Chiefs
8. Brumbies
9. Warratahs
10. Bulls
11. Highlanders
12. Lions
13. Blues
14. Cheetahs

On paper the Hurricanes line up is the most impressive, the team has 10 All Blacks...in the forwards Tialata, Hore, Eaton and Rodney. In the back line Weepu, Nonu, C. Smith, Gear, Jane. With new AB Alby Mathewson on the bench. The only weak spot in the team is at 10 where Ripia will be under pressure from Mathewson, Weepu may move to 10 and Alby to 9.

The Crusaders have one of the weakest XV they have ever had, despite this they are still full of talent, but I think wont be good enough to beat the Hurricanes.

The Force look to be the strongest of the Aussie sides, a great backline with Giteau leading the way. They wont get up over the Canes or Saders due to there weak forward pack particularly in the front row.

The Stormers have imo the strongest Saffa side and will finish in 4th.

Does anyone else think the finals should be extended to 6 teams, with the top 2 qualifiers maybe getting a by in Week One of the finals?

If it grows to 16 teams then I think they should introduce a top 8 finals like WC, for now I like it the way it is.

Game A: 3 v 6
Game B: 4 v 5

Game C: 1 v Winner Game B
Game D: 2 v Winner Game A

Game E: Winner Game C v Winner Game D

Yep this was already decided and supposed to go ahead this year but SA wanted the top two teams from each country to qualify for the 6 team final rather than the top 6 finishing sides but Aus, NZ didn't agree so it was quashed. Fair call I reckon but shame it didn't eventuate.

If it ever does get to 16 teams it will be a conference system with SA, Aus and NZ conferences. After the GFC its more than likely only going to be a S15 with either a Victorian or Eastern Province side.
