    The Tah’s (ranked 2nd) take on the Canes (ranked 3rd), both teams are guaranteed to make the semi’s… both teams have quality players (but will the coaches be looking to take things easy in the build up to the semi’s)… can’t pick this one… should be close

    Who wins will have a home semifinal. Tahs can still get no 1 but i don`t think Crusaders will lose vs Brumbies!

    The 2 big fixtures this week look like they'll be semi final previews

    I dont think any of these teams will wanna give too much away this week but the winners will gain alot of confidence going into the finals.

    I predict a Tahs win by 15.

    Tahs will win they won't want to let Whits leave without a home semi.

    yeah this game is about who gets the home semi. I am sure both teams will leave something for the semis and will most likely bench key players once the result is known. the canes seems to be a bit flat at the moment and I think the tahs can get the win and a home semi.

    Go the tahs, hmmm go the cains. hmmm dont know who to go for really. and dont even know if i will watch the game. should be a good atmosphere there though.

    good luck to both teams, and i am sure the better team on the day will win (or at least the team with the most points)

    it's all about the home semi this week. i would like to see the canes win as they haven't had one yet and it might give them confidence they need to win the semi. although so long as they win next week it won't matter where they play.

    I hope Rogers shows his class at 5/8. Hes been a bit off colour since his return. Defence will need to pick up as well.

    Yep....I can't pick a winner here either.....

    ...actually...my head tells me the Tahs by a fair bit....comfortable win.....

    ...my heart wants the Canes....but they never step up enough....

    After last weeks lax performance you'd think they'd been shaken from their complacency and step up a fair bit... The Tah's do have the ability to win this comp, and tonight will show if they have the will.

    Tahs sack Wendell Sailor
    May 13, 2006
    NSW Waratahs Wendell Sailor has been stood down for tonight's crucial Super 14 match against the Hurricanes at Aussie Stadium for an alleged serious breach of the ARU Code of Conduct.
    NSWRU says it is legally bound by confidentiality requirements and is unable to elaborate on the alleged breach at this time.

    Sailor has been stood down indefinitely pending a full investigation.

    The winner of the pivotal last-round encounter between the second-placed Waratahs and the third-placed Hurricanes will secure the home-ground advantage for next Saturday night's sudden-death semi-final between the two teams.

    The Crusaders will play either the Sharks or the Bulls in the first semi-final in Christchurch on Friday night after clinching the minor premiership last night with a 33-3 victory over the Brumbies.
