Who will it be?

Finally a break from Super Rugby and the champions should be already in the top 3, I reckon. The break has come a week too late for the Sharks who have set the pace in this year’s edition of Super Rugby.

The Waratahs and Crusaders winning their game in hands against play-off chasing Brumbies and Hurricanes respectively could see the Sharks drop to third and relinquish the advantage they worked for all season.

All top ten sides are in contention to make the play-offs and the final run will commence on the 27th for our Australasia counterparts.

The Waratahs and Crusaders look set to finish strong as they give an impression of peaking at the right time. ( How will the break benefit their form? ) Nadolo, Slade and McNicholl have been pivotal for the New Zealand outfit. Folau and Foley have been key for the Tahs. They look likely to meet in the final.

Banana skins in the road as of the other seven sides the Bulls will really need a miracle. They have been inconsistent and likely to be challengers next year. Surprise package the Force need another run of wins to get a first-time play off spot. The Brumbies are also in a similar position and will require a good run. Albeit they both face fellow play-off hopefuls.

South Africa have one contender in the Sharks and the franchise should atleast make the semi-finals and from there on anything is possible.

The Hurricanes, Hammett’s swan song could see the Wellington outfit finally show their quality and be real contenders. Their display against reigning champions Chiefs was a warning but they won’t have enough in the tank.

If the Highlanders and Blues manage to manoeuvre their way past tricky fixture they could seal play off spots. Champions Chiefs have to re-group and hopefully they will return to their old ways. A fiver against the Highlanders on the Super Rugby return could find them in the mix.

Top perfomers have been : Reinach, Steyn, Slade, Fekitoa, Sias and Barrett.
I think it will finish : Waratahs, Sharks, Crusaders, Chiefs, Hurricane and Highlanders in the play- offs.
