There was some great action last week with the Reds beating the Lions and the Highlanders scoring by one point over the Bulls.
Round 12 promises more of the same and we have free tips and form for all six Super Rugby games, starting with the Chiefs vs. Jaguares on Friday night.
5:35pm Chiefs vs. Jaguares @ Rotorua Stadium
The Chiefs blitzed the Reds before enjoying a bye week in Round 11.
They should be refreshed and ready to take on the Jaguares, which scored an upset win over the Blues last week.
Scoring a come-from-behind win over the worst New Zealand franchise team, the Jaguares will look to build on that mid-season momentum.
Unfortunately for the Argentinan side, the Chiefs are a powerhouse team and with dry conditions expected on Friday night, expect the Chiefs to play exciting rugby and blow the Jaguares off the park.
Betting tip: Chiefs 13+ @ $1.80 (BET NOW)
Chiefs by 18
7:45pm Rebels vs. Crusaders @ Melbourne Stadium
There is nothing going right for the Rebels after losing to the Stormers last week and more pain is in store this week.
Facing the Crusaders hasn’t been fun for many teams this season and they’re continuing their roll to the playoffs after beating the Brumbies 21-8 last week.
The Crusaders look ready to go for the playoffs right now and the Rebels are struggling to score a win after starting the season on fire.
Bookmakers have this line set at 14.5 and the Rebels would need to play out of their skin to cover the spread.
Betting tip: Crusaders –14.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)

5:35pm Hurricanes vs. Lions @ Westpac Stadium
It was a perplexing performance from the Lions against the Reds last week and we’re not sure which team will turn up on Saturday night.
Last year’s finalists looked to have regained some form throughout the mid-stages of the season but that loss couldn’t have come at a worse time.
They’re about the face the Hurricanes and most punters have already chalked that down as a loss for the Lions.
We’re no different and although the Hurricanes can put in the odd interesting result, they should have too much class at home for the Lions.
Betting tip: Hurricanes –13.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)

7:45pm Waratahs vs. Blues @ Brookvale Oval
There isn’t much form to go on with the Waratahs or the Blues, so this game will come down to which team wants it more.
The Waratahs are coming off a bye week after losing 29-0 to the Lions in Round 10 and the Blues were defeated by the Jaguares on home soil last week.
Both teams are out of sorts this season and off-field problems have marred the Waratahs in particular, but one team could come out with some fire this Saturday.
The Blues have the talent on the field to win and $2.60 in a game against the Waratahs is great value.

11:05pm Stormers vs. Bulls @ Newlands Stadium
The Stormers enjoy another home game after scoring a convincing 34-18 win over the Rebels last week.
It was a nice bounce-back win for the South African side after losing to the Sharks in Round 10 and they get the joy of playing another home game here.
It will come against the Bulls, which were valiant in defeat to the Highlanders last week.
The Bulls will take plenty from the 28-29 loss to the Highlanders and they should be able to build some momentum heading into the playoffs.
There’s not much separating these teams, as the market suggests, and this could be the game of the round.
Betting tip: Stormers 1-12 @ $3.10 (BET NOW)

1:15am Sharks vs. Highlanders @ Kings Park Stadium
The Highlanders scored a narrow win over the Bulls last week and they now face another tough South African side.
One of the best teams in the competition, the Highlanders will face a Sharks team that is coming off a bye and an impressive win in Round 10.
This could be the one game where the Highlanders struggle and the odds on offer from bookmakers are appealing.
$2.70 for the Sharks is a great price and punters are getting great value.
