URC: Final Prediction!

This weekend sees the URC season finale, which takes place in Cape Town once again, and the Stormers look like favourites to lift the trophy for a second consecutive season.

Here is my URC pick for the final this weekend.

Stormers v Munster

The Stormers will start as slight favourites in front of their own crowd, but then Munster won in Cape Town just last month, so it really could go either way. It’s a final after all, and the additional pressure with so much at stake makes it difficult to predict.

Instead, I’m looking at my pool standings, which are generally slightly disappointing! I have a sniff of a gold medal in one pool, but picking the Stormers isn’t going to get me very far, given that most people will be doing the same.

I’m backing Munster to win. The Irish side are more than capable of an upset, as they demonstrated by sneaking past Leinster in the semi-finals, and they’ll play without fear away from home with little to lose. Munster by 2

I agree that Munster will win. I will always back a visiting team who plays against a team other than the Sharks.

I disagree, Muster were very lucky to beat the Favorites and Libok had a bad day last game between the two. I am in the lead in five pools and cant be caught so I'm going with the Stormers by 2 26 May 08:52

All i can say is "May the best team win" The referees are all neutral tomorrow so hopefully the ref will be fair and that there is no favoritism to either side.

There was ONCE a ex-munster coach - Rassie Erasmus, the same Rassie gave the Stormers some insights about Munster.

I guess but just had a feeling than an upset was on the cards. Un related to the URC, you'd be surprised to know that I predicted the Bulls to beat the Pumas in their Currie Cup match. It took alot in me to go with a Bulls win.... It's not going to become a habit though (of me predicting the Bulls to win)
