RugbyFix Picks: Super Rugby Round Sixteen 2011

There is potential for some thrashings in this week of Super Rugby. However, this stage of the tournament is really dishing up some upsets. Last week the Lions shocked all tipsters by defeating the Highlanders at home. The Highlanders, for their part, have been surprising people all year but finally had the banana skin everyone had been waiting for.

So this week, despite all the mismatches, it can be anyone’s game. The Highlanders will hopefully rebound, especially with Adam Thomson back, hopefully for real this week. The Stormers, Sharks, Hurricanes and Reds should all be way too strong for their cellar-dweller opponents. The Chiefs welcome back Tana Umaga and Tanerau Latimer, but will probably not be strong enough for the Blues, who have benched their captain Keven Mealamu.
