For the love of it!

Random toughts of a Sports Lover…

Stats rulz….

 From my previous post…

 “…the last time the Crusaders hosted the Chiefs in Christchurch on a Friday evening, the Chiefs actually won, ( 04 May 2007…and this match is on 9 March, and 4 May is 4th of the 5th month, and 4 plus 5 is 9= 9 March) so therefore the Chiefs will actually win and the Crusaders lose.”

 Result: Chiefs won 24-19 (5 point margin). Previous win in Christchurch 30-24 (6 points margin)

 “…the only match the Canes have won in Perth was in 2009, after a two week trip in South Africa.

 Result: Hurricanes win by plenty


Tomorrows games?


Brumbies never lost to Cheetahs in Canberra, so Brumbies to win.


Highlanders vs Tahs: “Both previous times these two teams met in Round 3, the Waratahs won and I think history will repeat itself.”


Sharks vs Lions: “But, the Lions are the current Currie Cup champions…and the wins the Lions recorded in the Superrugby against the Sharks was in 2000 and 2001. In 1999, the Lions also won the Currie Cup, playing Natal in the finals….just like last year.” So the Lions should win…


Bulls vs Blues: The only year in which the Blues beat the Bulls at Loftus was in April 2003. In 2003, the Blues lost only one match, against the Highlanders. This year, they’ve lost two already, and the only time in history that the Blues have recovered in week 3 from two opening losses, was in 2006 when they marginally defeated an inept Reds side with 1 point in Brisbane.  They’ve also never won a Round 3 match on the second weekend of March.



Wishful thinking?? Pity I didn’t pick my losers as losers on Superbru….now I am zero out of two for the weekend!


But like Naas says, never disregard the history…
