my predicted quarter-finalists conference leaders: Crusaders Sharks Brumbies wildcards: Hurricanes Highlanders - a lot of home games left. Rebels Jaguares - always think they're capable of winning in NZ and Australia. Lions - same as the Highlanders and have the potential to string wins together. my guess for the quarter-finals: Crusaders (1) v Lions (8) Sharks (2) v Jaguares (7) Brumbies (3) v Rebels (6) Hurricanes (4) v Highlanders (5) watch me be way off with these guesses. I don't think the Chiefs, Blues and the Stormers will win enough games to qualify. the Bulls have not toured in NZ or Aus yet so that rules them out. the Waratahs, Reds and Sunwolves aren't good enough.
