Hurricanes vs Moana Predictions


This should be a straightforward victory for the Hurricanes on home soil. The visitors have lost their last three games while the Canes are coming into this clash off the back of only their second loss of the season.

I am backing the hosts to pick up a bonus point win and cover the -33 handicap.

  • Hurricanes have won 9 of their last 11 matches.
  • Hurricanes have won their last 5 home matches.
  • Hurricanes beat Moana by 49 points last season.
  • Moana have lost 8 of their last 11 matches.
  • Moana have lost their last 3 matches.

Head to Head


Last season Moana suffered a 71-22 defeat to the Hurricanes.

Hurricanes Form


The Hurricanes have been top of the Super Rugby table for the majority of the season but they lost that spot last weekend when they suffered an away defeat to the Blues.

However, both of the Canes defeats have come on the road, they have still won nine of their 11 games this season. This weekend offers then a great chance to get back on track with a good win.

Prior to their 31-27 defeat on Saturday in Auckland, the Hurricanes beat the Waratahs 41-12 at home.

Hurricanes Squad & Team News


Despite defeat to the Blues, the Hurricanes will have one eye on the playoffs in a few weeks. They may well rest key players on Friday.

Moana Form


Moana may be better than last season, but they are still struggling down in 10th place. They have won just three games and have the worst points difference by some distance.

The Pacific Islanders do not have a squad filled with international talent like many other teams. As the season has progressed this has proven crucial.

Last weekend Moana lost 43-7 at home to the Chiefs, their third straight defeat since beating the Reds on 12 April.

Moana Squad & Team News


Moana have little option but to make changes to their side for this encounter. Expect at least four of five changes.

Verdict

Hurricanes are tipped to cover the -33 handicap against a struggling Moana outfit.
