United Rugby Championship: Round 24 Predictions

The Top 8 is starting to take shape now, and there are a couple of games left for teams to jostle for position to secure home advantage in the playoffs.

Here are my URC predictions for this weekend.

Bulls v Glasgow

Loftus could become as tough a place to get a result as Dublin, and I can’t see Glasgow coming away with anything this weekend. Bulls by 13

Munster v Cardiff

Munster will be determined to secure home advantage in the quarter-finals and I’m expecting a big bonus-point win here. Munster by 28

Lions v Benetton

Home advantage will help the Lions here, and the fact that Benetton have been useless over the last few months. Lions by 18

Sharks v Connacht

Connacht were surprise winners in Johannesburg last weekend, but they are unlikely to beat the Sharks in Durban as the home side continues to chase top spot in the South African conference. Sharks by 16

Zebre v Dragons

Where to start with this one? Probably another Zebre defeat, although the Dragons are very unpredictable. Dragons by 7

Stormers v Leinster

You have to back the home side here, given that Leinster are resting their first-choice squad for their upcoming Heineken Cup match. Stormers by 7

Ospreys v Scarlets

This is a tough pick, and I’d normally side with home advantage, but I’m going with my gut to pick the away side. Scarlets by 4

Edinburgh v Ulster

Ulster have lost 3 in a row, but they have been very tough fixtures, and they still have a chance of a home quarter-final. The bookies are backing Edinburgh but I’m going for another upset. Ulster by 4

6,786 caps
So, where is Hutch ?
