Although I like going for the underdog, I don't think that NSW stands a
chance of beating QLD let alone by 10 points. While NSW have showed some
glimpses of form this year, the way QLD are playing, I don't think NSW will
even come close.

I would also like to add that on the Super Selectors on
http://www.nzrugby.co.nz Keith Quinn perdicted basically the same.

Agreed. NSW did not appear to have an alternative game plan last weekend
after Lomu and Vidiri proved they could catch the ball.

The Queensland backline is better than the Blues so I would say Queensland
by at least 15

 I once went to a pub in Glasgow and the sign read:
No dirty overalls
No dirty boots
and No Campbells

Meaning you can't trust a Campbell :-)

Giving your prediction, you must be from Wellington, which reminded me of
the "can't trust a Campbell" - no offence meant

Unless the Hurricanes pick up, they will not be there I'm afraid (but then
again, I doubt Otago will be either).

Keith Quinn couldn't predict what day it was and never has (especially when
predicting team selections.  Anyone remember his MacDonald prediction for the
AB tour last year???)

    I'm optimistic. They're coming back from a holiday, Allen and
    Bachop are presumably still off, and Preston might be back. The
    usual Wellington problem against Otago is an inability to get
    through their defence . . . _surely_ the coaches will have worked
    out something by now!

    I'd like to see Laupepe back on too. O'Halloran may be unable to
    cope with Otago's Leslie. But the most interesting comparison to
    me is going to be Cullen vs Wilson. Hopefully with the expected
    weakness of our loose forwards compared to yours, Cullen will get
    plenty of ball, and Wilson will get starved by greedy Otago
    forwards.

Agree on the victor, but how on earth do you arrive at this margin?

Crusaders to win.

Reds to *crush* the Waratahs

Quote:

Chiefs best chance of a first ever victory on SA soil - watch themn take it

Quote:

Home advantage to count watch the Hurricanes to be beaten in the tight (
again)

Quote:

>Hurricanes

The Hurricanes won't be there.
