Alright Boys, the Super 15 starts up again this weekend, with 2 games
Reds @ Brumbies and Force @rebels

Reds @ Brumbies
I was quite suprised to find the reds open up as underdogs as i was hoping to get a few free points and a good ML on the brumbies neither the lessm the Brumbies have put on size and increased their attack this year which will make them a real contendor, this has been shown in there trails they arent afraid to run the ball.
Pick: Brumbies -1.5
Predection: Brumbies by 6

Force @ rebels
Lets face it both of these teams had a horrid season last year and want to make amends. During the post season Force have picked up handy players which will help them turn this year around. I believe the rebels will be in the same form as last year as they are looking at building the club and this is show by the 11 debutants for their first Super Rugby trial match against the Waratahs, alot of young guys to build can see them in 3 years time as a contendor:
Pick: Force + 6.5
Prediction: Force by 9

Super 15 YTD: 0-0

Force by 9? Their backs are horrible, it's basically Cummings and a bunch of no name NZ scrubs.

I agree with your Brumbies pick, it will be close but they should win at home.

BOL for the season mate and hope you can have a good money making season.

Still doing my research in these games and what has happened and all that jazz. But from the looks like both them plays.

I do like the Force here, and i am more than happy to take the +6.5 for them. They have shown a massive improvement over their offseason. If you watch there trails, the ball is moving freely and the play makers are hitting the holes out wide.

Thanks Snake, i did well with my union last year, and i hope to do well again with it.

Brumbies at home and a 90% reds team, i took the -2.5 now -3.5

BOL guys

Force better find someone else to do the kicking asap, they could have won if he had made some not that difficult kicks.

Anyone know what the O/U season wins was for the Force? This team looks very ordinary and hard to see them winning more than a couple of games

Didn't do any O/U this year, have in the past.
What I do know is Force are 2nd favs for the spoon.
SBUK has the bottom five right now as :

Southern Kings 1.18
Force 8.00
Cheetahs 13
Rebels 26
Blues 67
