RugbyFix Picks: Super Rugby Round 7 (Easter) 2012

Some difficult games to pick in the seventh round of the 2012 Super Rugby tournament. The Hurricanes v Sharks, Reds v Brumbies, Highlanders v Stormers, and Bulls v Crusaders all look like they could go either way. However, RugbyFix has opted for the home side of each game to take it out. The opening game of the Rebels v Blues may show us just how bad the Blues have sunk, with a single win to show for their season. However, we’re predicting desperation to get them through this week and notch up their second win. Expect a lot of tries in the Cheetahs v Lions game, which will likely be the most electric of the round.

We are predicting the game of the round to be the Stormers v Highlanders in Dunedin. Both teams have had strong season so far, and this weekend’s game will tell us a lot about their true title aspirations, particularly the Highlanders.
