THE PREDICTION

Hurricanes will believe they have improvements in them having only finished third in the standings in last year’s Super Rugby Aotearoa. They open their account with a tricky game with the Blues, another side who will hope for better this time around. Both teams will have fancied their chances of earning the title last time around but they fell short as the Crusaders proved too good and this could well be an important matchup with an early defeat not setting the right tone for either side. There was one win apiece for each side in their clashes last time around but both were high-scoring affairs, producing 50 and 56 points respectively. The teams may be a little rusty for this encounter but that could leave gaps in the defensive line and there should over 48.5 points in this contest.
