United Rugby Championship: Quarter-Final Predictions

With the regular season done and dusted, we’re into the Quarter-Finals with plenty of representation from both hemispheres.

Here are my URC predictions for this weekend.

Ulster v Munster

This could be the toughest pick of the round on Friday night, with two Irish heavyweights going head to head. Munster have won the last 3 in a row against Ulster, but I’m finding it hard to pick against the home team in the first quarter-final. Ulster by 2

Bulls v Sharks

Like in the first game, the away side has had the better of recent meetings, and the Sharks beat the Bulls at Loftus earlier in the season. I’ll study the lineups before locking my pick, but for now I’m backing another home win. Bulls by 4

Leinster v Glasgow

This one looks more straightforward, with the top seed against 8th placed Glasgow, who only managed two away wins all year. And having been beaten in the Heineken Champions Cup final, Leinster won’t let this trophy slip through the net. Leinster by 16

Stormers v Edinburgh

An upset here isn’t off the table, but the Stormers have been fairly formidable at home and will start as firm favourites. Stormers by 9

Sharks by 3; Edinburgh by 5 ; Leinster by 19 ; Ulster by 9

Transfer limit is bit too strict. I had only one player from last round playing, so I can't fill out even playing part of squad.

Hey Daniel. I only need to make 1 transfer, to have 15 starters. Most brus will be in a similar position, because we had unlimited transfers last round. I picked last weeks squad with this week in mind, which was easy enough because we already knew most of the quarter-finalists. I also chose players that usually start, rather than impact players who might have scored better, but don't always play. Not that any of this helps you now. I suggest you import 8 players from Leinster and Province, surely they will be in the Semis? 3 Jun 18:04

I seed it in January. Could not wait for the sharks to come to Loftus!!!! After everyone wrote of the Bulls in the beginning of the year. We are going to the Semi-final.!!!! Beat the Sharks on the Log and beat them on the pitch.

@TheVikingKing, Bulls won't make it to the Final nor will the Stormers. I'm going to be rooting for Leinster and Ulster this weekend as I don't like the Bulls or Stormers. One thing I must say is that it wasn't a walk over win by the Bulls. It could have gone either way. I hope Leinster show the Bulls who is boss and the reason why they finished top of the overall log.

Hehehe... Was easy game for the Mighty Bulls, Zebre would have been more of a challenge! Regardless of what happens this weekend. Record books will forever reflect that Bulls beat the sharks on the overall log and on the field (WHEN IT MATTERED) in playoffs. 2022 what a great session for the Bulls! Have fun watching Quater finals with the rest of the sharks team from Durban. ;-) 8 Jun 12:30

The Sharks were above the Bulls on the overall log for most of the URC season until we lost our last game. The Bulls will be humbled this weekend and hopefully humiliated too.
