    Cape Town - A survey on SuperBru, the fantasy sports platform, suggests that the opening fixture in Round 2 of Super Rugby is the hardest one to predict.

    The Chiefs have been champions for the past two seasons, but face a daunting trip to Christchurch to take on the most successful side in the history of the competition - the Crusaders.

    Of the 5 475 SuperBru players that responded to the survey on Thursday, 40.97% said they struggled the most to pick this fixture - 71.58% of the community have opted for the Crusaders, and the average overall prediction is Crusaders by 3.

    Meanwhile, nearly 20% of players cited the Cheetahs v Bulls as the hardest to call, and the community is split down the middle in terms of which way the game will go - 49.9% have backed the home side, with 49.82% picking the Bulls and the rest going for a draw.

    Which teams do you think will win this weekend?
