If the Spud Man is happy, Scotty Stevenson is happy; if Scotty Stevenson is happy, the Super Rugby Power Rankings are happy. Unless you're the Rebels or the Force. 1. Chiefs (N/C) Nothing seen in Round 5 can convince me the Chiefs deserve a demotion from the number one spot. They return to action this week with a home game against the Bulls, who were torn to shreds by the Blues in the second half last week. The Chiefs’ offload game (they throw the most in the competition) will only compound the Bulls’ issues on defence. Another thing to note: In the last ten years the Chiefs have gone 11-5 post-bye week. In that time they have never been defeated by a South African team – home or away – following the bye. The Bulls have won only once against the Chiefs away from home.
