Blues vs Reds Predictions


Blues have been magnificent this season and are particularly strong at home. While the Reds are one of the strongest Aussie sides, it will take a massive effort to get anything from this match. My best bet is for the Blues to cover.

  • Blues have won 15 of their last 16 matches against Australian opposition.
  • Blues have won 4 of their last 6 matches against the Reds.
  • Blues have won their last 10 matches.
  • Reds have lost their last 3 matches.

Head to Head


The Blues have won four of their last six encounters against the Reds. There has been one defeat and one draw.

Blues Form


The Blues are sitting top of the Super Rugby table having won 10 of their 11 matches thus far. They are two points clear of the Brumbies having picked up five bonus points in their fixtures.

The only defeat the Blues have suffered this year was at the hands of the Hurricanes on the opening weekend. Since then they have achieved 10 successive wins.

Last week the Auckland outfit were at their dominant best, winning 71-28 against the Rebels at home. They struggled the week before, narrowly seeing off the Force 22-18 in Perth.

Blues Injuries & Team News


The Blues are blessed with a number of All Blacks within their squad. Beauden Barrett continues at flyhalf this weekend with Stephen Perfeta in good form at fullback.

Luke Romano has to be happy with a place on the bench.

Reds Form


The Reds were fighting at the top of the table a few weeks back but since their trans-Tasman games they have fallen off the pace.

They have slipped from third to sixth over the last month with three successive defeats. The Queensland side began this three-match losing stretch against the Hurricanes before losing 27-25 to the Chiefs.

Last week was probably the Reds best chance of a win over a New Zealand side against the struggling Highlanders. The Highlanders however came out 27-19 victors which suddenly leaves the visitors with a tough task of making the playoffs.

Reds Injuries & Team News


The return of James O’Connor at flyhalf is a massive boost for the Reds. They have certainly missed him but he will need to make an immediate impact if they are to upset the odds in Auckland.
