Super Rugby Pacific enters its fifth week and many of the Australian sides remain prominent on the ladder!
The Brumbies and the Reds are in fact the only two clubs that remain undefeated in 2022, and the two bitter foes will clash in Canberra on Friday night.
That is just one of six matches that we will be treated to, and you can find my complete Super Rugby Pacific Round 5 Tips below.
Sparks will fly in the nation’s capital on Friday night when Australia’s two strongest sides of the last few seasons clash, in what is a replay of the last two Super Rugby Australia finals.
The Brumbies have been a model of consistency for several seasons now, but they are eager to hit back at last year’s disappointing loss to the Reds in the decider. They are flying high, and they enter Week 5 on top of the ladder, with a perfect record.
The Reds are also undefeated in 2022, and they take their place this week following a tight win over an improved Fijian Drua.
Home ground advantage will be the difference in what is sure to be an absolute blockbuster
We’re off to Leichardt Oval in Sydney’s inner west on Saturday for what promises to be a great contest between the Fijian Drua and Western Force.
They looked awful in the first couple of weeks of the Super Rugby Pacific season, but the Fijian Drua have continued to improve noticeably with each game played, and recorded an impressive win over the Rebels before pushing a talented Reds side all the way last week.
The Force are another side who continue to punch above their weight, but they still have won just one of their four matches this season.
I think that this will be a terrific contest, with the Force just sneaking home in a nail-biter.
