Super Rugby returns with a widely anticipated and hugely important round 17 clash tonight in Melbourne, between the Rebels and Waratahs.

The winner will put themselves into the box seat to claim top spot in the Australian conference – and a guaranteed home final – while for the loser, it will open up the possibility of missing out on the finals altogether, depending on how other results go.

The June international series has had a huge impact, for two reasons – injuries to key players, and the interruption of momentum that both sides had generated before the enforced break.

Both sides have been similarly affected by injury; the Rebels losing captain Adam Coleman and star halfback Will Genia, while the Waratahs, have lost their captain Michael Hooper, and star fullback Israel Folau (subject to appeal at the time of writing).

All are key players, but there is a sense that Michael Hooper – by dint of his inspirational leadership, and tireless work-rate – is a most significant loss.

To counter that, the Waratahs pack welcomes back Ned Hanigan from injury, and there is energy and organization about their play which has held them in good stead this season.

In the backline Taqele Naiyarovoro will look to continue where he left off earlier this season in Sydney, where his power running proved too much for the Rebels to handle.

Despite the loss of the two senior Wallabies, the home team has a settled look about it, with the experienced Geoff Parling in for Coleman, and Reece Hodge once again handed the 10 jersey.

Talismatic No.8 Amanaki Mafi is potentially playing his final home match for the Rebels, and while he owes local fans nothing, he will be desperate to sign off with his customary flourish.

Coach Dave Wessels has spoken this week about not placing too much pressure on his side, letting his players approach the game with a degree of freedom, which augers well for a match full of enterprise – although he will certainly be insistent upon a stouter defensive effort than what his players showed in the extreme heat of the Sydney match.

PredictionOn exposed form this season, the Waratahs are the better team, reflective of them being a year or so ahead in their development under Daryl Gibson, compared to the time Wessels has had with his side.

The Hooper factor is a big one however, and an upset win to a committed home team wouldn’t surprise.

Rebels by 6 points

The Hurricanes take on the Sunwolves in Wellington as Round 11 of the Super Rugby season gets underway.

The last time – in fact, the only time – these teams met, the Canes almost broke the century mark, winning 83-17 in Round 1 last year.

The Sunwolves are a better side now for sure but then arguably so are the Hurricanes.

The Canes are currently sitting second in the competitive New Zealand conference and fourth overall.

Considering the Sunwolves’ fortunes – played eight, lost eight and by an average of 35 points in their last five away games – it’s easy to write this game off as predictable and without overall importance but there are some interesting subplots.

For the Hurricanes their fearless leader, Brad Shields, has found himself in the middle of an international tug of war between the England RFU and New Zealand Rugby Union. Eddie Jones has said that he wants to take Shields on the England tour to South Africa in a couple of months but the NZRU are insistent that Shields is contracted until the end of the season and cannot play for another national side until then. Whether this drama has an impact is yet to be seen.

Rugby fans everywhere will be excited about seeing Ben Lam in this game – when you combine one of the most effective ball runners in the competition with one of the weakest defences, we could be looking at a long highlights reel post-game.

Arguably even more exciting for the Canes faithful is the return of Nehe Milner-Skudder – he’s been out since October but his shoulder injury has been responding well and he’s likely to come on from the bench.

For the Sunwolves, this match will likely see another brave performance from their leader Pieter Labuschagne. Interestingly, the combination of his team having to do a lot of defending this season and his own ability and guts has Labuschagne as one of the top defenders in the whole competition. He’s a talismanic figure for the team from Japan and he’s going to need to be at his best.

PredictionIt’s hard to see any other result than a Canes victory, with the real question being how big the winning margin will be.

Hurricanes to win by 25.

Dereck Chisora and Germany’s Senad Gashi face another heavyweight bout.

Chisorsa and Dillian Whyte tore the house down again in a thrilling December rematch but a KO defeat for the Brixton fighter raised questions over whether he may decide to call it a day and hang up his gloves.

The 35-year-old immediately shot down talk of retirement however and now has his eye on a meeting with former WBO champion Joseph Parker or the undefeated Oleksandr Usyk.

Having dominated the cruiserweight division and become the first man to hold all four major world titles at the weight, Usyk moves up to heavyweight in May when he will take on Carlos Takam.

‘Del Boy’ hopes to be next in line and now working under Dave Coldwell, who previously trained former cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew, he is confident there are more big nights ahead of him.

A defeat at the O2 would be surely derail those plans, however. Little-known Gashi has won 15 of his 17 professional bouts, losing his two fights against anyone of real note.

One of those was against Takam – a man Chisora beat last year – with the other to Tom Schwarz, who takes on Tyson Fury later in the summer.

Date, UK start time and venue

Chisora vs Gashi takes place on Saturday April 20 at London’s O2 Arena.
