URC: Round 9 Predictions

The Sharks robbed me of a GSP last weekend having predicted an easy home win (and having changed another pick to Benetton after seeing team news). The wait for the full house goes on, but at least the Sharks have fired the coach on the back of letting down my Superbru score.

Here are my URC predictions for Round 9.

Sharks v Ospreys

Will we see a new manager bounce from the Sharks? They can’t be as bad as last weekend, and the Ospreys aren’t usually very good. Sharks by 18

Edinburgh v Munster

This is a tricky pick, but I’ll give it to the home team, given that Edinburgh tend to be so strong in the Scottish capital. Edinburgh by 4

Stormers v Dragons

This is an obvious one, with the reigning champions looking difficult to beat, and the Dragons looking the opposite. Stormers by 13

Zebre v Glasgow

This looks like an opportunity for Glasgow’s first away win of the season, up against the league’s worst side. Glasgow by 16

Connacht v Benetton

Benetton have been great at home, but awful away, and this should be straightforward for Connacht. Connacht by 13

Bulls v Cardiff

Can the Welsh team cause another massive shock? Probably not at Loftus, where the Bulls remain unbeaten this year. Bulls by 18

Leinster v Ulster

This is 1st versus 2nd, but at the RDS there’s only one team you can pick to win. Hopefully a cracker to watch though. Leinster by 9

Lions v Scarlets

The Scarlets have only won once this season, and I can’t see them getting anything from this visit to Johannesburg. Lions by 11

Sad news fellow brus! The statistics required to run a Heineken Cup Fantasy are not available. Below is a cut-and-paste from SB’s Heineken Cup Predictor:
“While our Predictor game will run as normal, there will unfortunately be no Heineken Cup Fantasy game on Superbru this season, with EPCR deciding not to support that game format this year. Separately, we at Superbru are exploring plans to revamp our Fantasy Rugby offering in 2023, so keep an eye out for news next year.”

Well, this is Super"disappointing" news Superbru team. Filp side is that you have identified the increase in demand for Rugby fantasy tournaments. Hopeful the goal is to one day run every major Superbru rugby tournament with its accompanying fantasy competition. Living in hope that 2023 will have more rugby Fantasy tournaments. 6 Dec 14:20
