Most of the teams in the Pro14 are taking a break due to the 6 Nations. The two South African sides are using this time to play their derby games. They took a break of over the festive period as it’s so hot in South Africa at that time of year. It’s still hot over there but they need to catchup the games.

As with Super Rugby I’m be testing my predictions in DrivingMaul v the Bookie. Check out how I did against the TAB in Round 10.
Kings v Cheetahs – Cheetahs by 10
This is the first in a double header with the return fixture the following weekend. If we look at the record between the two sides there’s a lot of orange.
With that record and seeing as Kings only have 1 win this season it’s an easy pick. The only real question is the margin of victory. Looking at the Cheetahs record this season their home record suggests a large victory. However that was before their head coach moved to take charge of Italy. I still think that Cheetahs will get a comfortable win but not by the large margins we saw at the beginning of the season.
Record So Far
47 from 62 or 78% right.
