CRUSADERS to beat Hurricanes by 6
STORMERS to beat Force by 8
BULLS to beat Blues by 5
CHIEFS to beat Highlanders by 11
WARATAHS to beat Cheetahs by 15
SHARKS to beat Reds by 11
Difficult to pick many of the home teams this week and the margins are hard to call. The game of the round should be Hurricanes versus the Crusaders, which is traditionally the signature game of the New Zealand derbies. Hopefully the Hurricanes buck their form slump to make it a good close game.
