Rebels vs Hurricanes Live Stream, TV Channel, Tickets & Preview Super Rugby 2018 Full HD
The Rebels will be looking to spring a surprise or two when they host the 2016 Super Rugby champions the Hurricanes at AAMI Park on Friday.
Despite an opening-day defeat to the Bulls, the Hurricanes have emerged as title favourites following their back-to-back victories over New Zealand rivals the Crusaders and Highlanders.
Much has changed since the last time the sides met when the ‘Canes inflicted an all-time record defeat on the Rebels with a 71-6 pasting.
How quickly fortunes have turned as the Rebels now sit pretty atop the Australian Conference with four wins from their five games.
Yet to lose at home this season and on their longest winning streak with three victories on the trot, AAMI Park in Melbourne has become a difficult place to play at for travelling teams.
However, the Hurricanes have won eight of their last nine games in Australia, including their last five, which is their longest ever winning streak in the country.
Last season the Hurricanes broke the all-time Super Rugby record for most tries scored in a season (96). This year so far, the Rebels have scored 5.6 tries per game, the second most in the competition behind the Lions (5.7).
