Both teams are coming off disappointing defeats – games they felt they should have won.

The Rebels’ three wins this season have all been at home, while the Hurricanes at least have one away victory. The Hurricanes, especially after last week’s stumble in Sydney, know they can’t underestimate the Rebels at their home base in Melbourne.

In fact the Rebels could easily have won a few more games, especially at home.

2012: Hurricanes won 66-24, Wellington

    Psst Bunny, you’ve switched the scored around in your headline. The Rebels wish they had won and for a while there it looked like they would but it was the Hurricanes who took the honours!
