Round 7 of Super Rugby has some mouth-watering prospects in store, most notably the two derbies in New Zealand and South Africa.
The Chiefs and Hurricanes will do battle in Hamilton tomorrow, the former’s tails will be up after the thrashing they administered on the Waratahs in Round 6 while the Canes will be looking to find their feet again after an unexpected loss to the Blues.
The Sharks host the Stormers in a top-of-the-conference clash which promises to exhibit the hard, uncompromising spirit which characterises South African derbies.
The Crusaders, Blues and Brumbies will fancy their chances against the Sunwolves, Lions and Waratahs respectively while the Reds v Bulls and Jauguares v Highlanders games may be slightly more challenging in terms of prediction.
