It may seem harsh to say this as it’s only round four of Super Rugby Aotearoa, but the clash between the Chiefs and Hurricanes in Hamilton has something of a battle to avoid the wooden spoon feel about it.
Neither team has won a game yet this season, although to be fair to the Hurricanes, they’ve only had two so far.
If the Chiefs lose, they can kiss goodbye any realistic chance of winning the competition, while if the Hurricanes are defeated, it’ll be a tough task to catch the Blues and Crusaders.
Where: FMG Stadium Waikato, Hamilton
Kickoff: 3.35pm, Sunday
Referee: Ben O’Keeffe
Live Broadcast : Sky Sport
Prediction: Although the Chiefs have lost all three of their games so far in Super Rugby Aotearoa, they are improving and according to their coach Warren Gatland, they were hard done by with refereeing decisions in their loss to the Crusaders last week. The Hurricanes have shipped 69 points in their two games and even though Jordie Barrett is back, defence will be an issue. Because of that, the Chiefs should pick up a home win.
