United Rugby Championship: Round 22 Predictions
There are just 3 matches this weekend, with one Welsh and two South African derbies to contend with, and one particularly tricky pick. Then, as it's the only game next weekend, Scarlets v Dragons has also been made a part of Round 22 on Superbru.
Here are my United Rugby Championship predictions for this weekend.
Stormers v Bulls
This is the toughest pick of the round, and I’m leaning towards the Bulls. They’ve played a slightly higher calibre of northern opposition in the last few weeks, and have recorded 4 impressive victories in a row. Bulls by 4
Sharks v Lions
The Lions have 4 wins in a row, including a great victory over Munster and they beat Edinburgh last week despite the bookies backing the visitors. However, I think the Sharks will be too strong for them here as they push for top spot in the South African conference. Sharks by 7
Cardiff v Scarlets
These two teams played each other last week, with Scarlets winning by 15 points at home. Cardiff have only lost once at the Arms Park this season, and they are a much different prospect in front of their own fans. The home side are slight favourites, but I’m going with the Scarlets who are playing for top spot in Wales. Scarlets by 2
Scarlets v Dragons
This fixture takes place next weekend, so I won’t be locking my pick just yet, but I also won’t be picking the Dragons to win.
