150chiefsThe first action in the final round of the regular Super Rugby season is a Round 19 New Zealand derby between the Chiefs and the Hurricanes in Hamilton on Friday.

 

 

Chiefs v Hurricanes, Friday 13th July, Hamilton, KO 09:35 (South African time)

 

Referee: Mike Fraser
Assistant Referees: Richard Kelly, James Doleman
TMO: Ben Skeen

 

Weather Forecast

 

Chiefs:

The Chiefs came through last week’s home fixture against the Brumbies with a 24-19 victory, a result which kept them in third spot in the New Zealand Conference, 5 points behind the second place Hurricanes. As it stands they are on course to play the Canes in Wellington in the first round of the play offs although if the Chiefs were to win this one by 23 points or more they would host next week’s match.

The Chiefs overall record now comprises of 10 wins and 5 defeats and they have won 5 of 7 home games with the losses coming against Jaguares and the Crusaders. In New Zealand derby matches the Chiefs have won 4 and lost 3. They were very impressive in hammering the Highlanders 45-22 in a game staged in Fiji 2 weeks ago whilst in Hamilton earlier in the season they have lost 34-20 to the Crusaders (Round 16) and they beat the Blues 21-19 (Round 8) and the Highlanders 27-22 (Round 7).

 

Hurricanes:

The Canes snapped a 3 match losing streak with a 42-24 victory over the Blues in Wellington last week but their chances of overhauling the Crusaders for top spot in the overall standings had long since gone. Their overall record reads 11 wins alongside 4 defeats and all 4 of those losses came away from home.

The Canes have won 5 of 7 NZ derby matches, 4 of which were staged in Wellington and they also won the first meeting with the Chiefs (25-13) in Round 9. They have come unstuck twice away from home in derby matches this season, going down 30-14 to the Highlanders in Dunedin in Round 16 and 24-13 to the Crusaders in Christchurch in Round 15.

The Betting

Handicap

Chiefs +3.5 points at 9/10 Sunbet, GGGaming

Hurricanes -2.5 points at 9/10 WSB

Note, odds quoted are an average of what was available at the time of last update but are subject to change.

 

Betting Angle

This Chiefs have been playing down an all assault on a winning margin that would see them host next weeks play off and indeed given some key men are rested I think they will battle to hold the Hurricanes

Minus handicap looks good to me.

 

Bet: 6 units Hurricanes -2.5 points at 9/10 WSB
