URC: Round 5 Predictions

Five results in the last round were picked by less than 50% of the Superbru community, so whilst I was initially disappointed with getting a few wrong, my 5 out of 8 yielded another green arrow on the global leaderboard.

Here are my picks for Round 5 of the United Rugby Championship.

The Sharks have had a difficult tour culminating in defeat to the Zebre, but they should be a different beast back in Durban. Edinburgh v Bulls is a tricky one, but I’ve gone with home advantage, as I have for the Zebre v Cardiff fixture.

Seven home wins out of eight in my picks this week, with the Ospreys to pick up the only away win in Newport.

How do your picks compare?

It is a tricky round that is for sure. Although the Sharks are my team, I must say that discipline has let them down. However, I'm hoping that this weekend is when things will change and we will put on a good display. I'm going for Sharks again. Agree with all your other picks Hutch.

Agree with all of those< Hutch - except I'm going for a calculated risk with Cardiff against Zebre - it's a bit too close to call with any confidence...

Connacht by 2 away in the Shark Tank. Unlucky away in Edinburgh. Parma hangover week, so Cardiff by 2. Bulls & Ospreys by 2 away.....er hang on....that's rather a lot of away wins eh? Let me regroup & re-think....talk amongst yerselves. .....These will be the 3 or 4 Hutch will get wrong this week, so my logic is still sound...er sort of?
