Super Rugby NZ week eight betting odds 2020

THE odds have been released for week 6 of the Super Rugby Aotearoa competition, which will feature two games on the coming weekend.

On Saturday the Blues will take on the Hurricanes at Sky Stadium in what is looming as the match of the round, with second place on the ladder potentially up for grabs.

The Blues will be looking to bounce back after losing their top-of-the-table clash to the Crusaders, their first loss of the Super Rugby NZ season.

A Hurricanes victory would keep them in touch with the second-placed Blues, or a loss would see them slip two games behind their more fancied opponents in the five-team, 10-week competition.

The Blues have been installed a $1.77 favourite to defeat the Hurricanes ($2.05) by leading bookmaker Betway, with their performance against the Hurricanes, when they led 15-9 before finally losing 26-15, losing them no fans.

On Sunday, the winless Chiefs have been installed at $1.44 to defeat the Highlanders ($2.80) at FMG Stadium.

The Highlanders have recorded just one victory, but were impressive in the second half against the Hurricanes, narrowly falling short 17-11, after trailing 17-0.

The Super Rugby Aotearoa competition is scheduled to run for 10 weeks, with no finals series, with the top team crowned the champion at the conclusion of matches.

The regular Super Rugby competition, played between franchises all over the world including those from New Zealand, Australia and South Africa, has been cancelled for 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Australia and New Zealand both announced replacement domestic Super Rugby tournaments for 2020, with discussion under way about a potential trans-Tasman competition for next year.
