URC: Round 18 Predictions

We go into the final round of the regular season this weekend, and there could still be some late movement in the table.

As you can see below, the battle for the final couple of play-off spots is quite something.

Here are my United Rugby Championship predictions for Round 18 this weekend.

I’m not expecting the Lions or Sharks to cause any upsets in South Africa, whilst I’ve picked a narrow home win for Benetton in the most crucial match of the round. That fixture has both a place in the playoffs and a spot in next year’s Champions Cup on the line - don't forget only the top 7 will now get a Champions Cup place as the Sharks have qualified by winning the Challenge Cup last week.

Are there any picks you disagree with here?

Sharks to prove everyone wrong and finish on a winning note that will deny the Bulls a losing bonus point. Sharks by 11. Lions to also do the same against the Stormers and win by 9

The impact of Bonus Points us there for all to see. Barely 3 victories difference over top 11 teams, but 18pts.
Am an Edinburgh fan, but happy to finish bottom half with a better selection of French cities to visit in Challenge Cup.
All Home wins this week 👍

True. I\'m sure the Sharks will out out a strong team to prove a point. They can\'t go and win the EPCR Challenge Cup and then lose to the Bulls. They have to keep their winning momentum even though it\'s the last game. 31 May 12:45

I am with the sharks to be motivated sufficiently to pull off an upset. 1 Jun 10:11

Agree on all except I have a feeling the lions will win if they show up.

Teams in 1st , 3rd and 4th need to win to push the Bulls lower to ensure they have to travel for all their remaining matches. Sharks need to win by more than 7 as well to complete the equation. 31 May 13:44
