Discombobulated by Super show

The results of Round One indicated that tipping will be more difficult and interesting in 2015.

This year's Super Rugby competition is as open as this year's Cricket World Cup.

I think that many games in Round Three are going to be too close to call.

Homeground advantage will let the Highlanders win this one.

The Force already beat the defending champions, but came unstuck in Brisvegas against the Reds. At home they have always been a competitive side. The Hurricanes have too many world class stars and after a successful 'safari' must have a real shot.

Chiefs versus Crusaders is going to be a humdinger. The ringing of the cow bells might just be the difference in this result. Your pick.

The Lions will have to step up from their 'flash in a pan' 2014 season. The Stormers are on a high; therefor might struggle if they are just going to pitch up and think that is enough for a victory. The using of subs, at that high altitude, might be the crucial ingredient for the 'Capies' to pull this one through.

The 'main course' will be the Bulls versus the Sharks. The Bulls' balls are hanging in the Sharks mouth. Will it be bitten off or will the Bull have a big enough horn to fight of the threat of this sea predator? Will the Sharks be great whites or Lenny of Shark Tale?'

There will be plenty big match-ups.

Victor Matfield versus his protégé Pieter Steph du Toit, Rudy Paige versus Cobus Reinach and the main attraction Pat Lambie versus Handré Pollard!

For the latter the whole season will determine who will start the June Tests in the pivotal position for the Boks.

So no better opportunity than Saturday to stake the first claim.
