Toiling Sunwolves set for another beating on trip to Stormers

Folau can star in early game

Waratahs v Jaguares
Sky Sports 3, 10.45am Saturday

The New South Wales Waratahs' four wins this season have all come against Australian opposition but they are 14-point favourites against Los Jaguares in Sydney.

It's the Tahs' first outing for more than a month while their Argentinian opponents blew away the cobwebs last weekend, although they were surprisingly edged 31-30 at home by the Kings.

Both teams are out of the playoff running towards the end of disappointing campaigns, and while there may be a little more fluency to the Jaguares' game thanks to that outing last week, they have won just one of their last eight.

One Waratahs player who has kept his eye in though is full-back Israel Folau, who started all three of Australia's June Tests. He has scored four tries in his last two Super Rugby matches at home and is worth backing to add to that tally.

Recommendation
I Folau to score a try

Stormers v Sunwolves
Sky Sports 1, 6.30pm Saturday

The Sunwolves were destroyed 94-7 by the Lions last week and things won't get any easier against the Stormers in Cape Town, where they are given a 34-point handicap start.

Both these teams rested players last week but are stronger for this clash, and after their 40-34 win over the Cheetahs the Stormers will see this as another opportunity to consolidate their playoff position.

Springboks Siya Kolisi, Eben Etzebeth and Damian Allende return for the Stormers, who are back on home soil, and although the Sunwolves have made a host of changes too, it may not be enough to prevent a heavy defeat.

Recommendation
Stormers to win by 50 points or more
1pt 18-5 BetBright
