Front Row Grunt

Rugby … with cauliflower ears

Crystal ball

Weekend predictions

A corker of a Kiwi derby to get us going, and a seriously spicy SA derby for our post grid bending entertainment on Saturday evening. We take a gander at what Tank, the Bookies and the Bru’s have to say.

After a storming 7 from 7, Gary Montague-Fryer (najanivea) – he of “Code 99” fame at the UCT Rugby Club – took home not only the GSP, but also the yellow cap, and top spot on the Front Row Grunt SuperBru pool ladder! Congrats big man! He and Peet Kruger are equal on points, but it’s Gary’s seriously tidy TDM that keeps him looking down on the rest of us!

Six out of seven for me, and good enough for 41st on the 586 strong leaderboard.

Righto, to this weekend’s schedule:

Fri 2 March:

* 08h35 – Blues v Chiefs

* 11h00 – Reds v Brumbies

* Chiefs by 5

Interesting to see that all the SuperBru Legends who have made their picks early, have gone with the Bulls to pip the Lions. No pressure Mitch!

All the best with those predictions
