Stormers vs Edinburgh

This match promises to be a tight affair as two very evenly matched teams meet. The Stormers are coming off an impressive victory over Connacht while Edinburgh were unlucky to lose a close match against the Bulls, missing a last minute penalty that would have given them the win. The home team will miss the services of Seabelo Senatla after the star winger was injured in the last match. His place has been taken by another flyer in Suleiman Hartzenberg. The visitors have selected a near full strength team with no injury concerns.

TIP: The Stormers very often bully opposition teams in the forwards but that won’t be easy to do in this match as the Edinburgh team have a powerful forward pack that is littered with Scottish internationals.The battle up front will decide the winner in this match and the visitors seem to have the edge in this department. The bookies have the Stormers as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.40, Playabets 1.38 and Sunbet 1.40


Stormers vs Edinburgh

  • The Stormers beat Edinburgh 28-17 in the last match between these teams.
  • The only other match between the teams ended in a draw.

Latest results for both teams

Stormers beat Connacht 38-15 in their last match while Edinburgh lost 33-31 to the Bulls.


The home team will need their defence to be on high alert as this Edinburgh team have attacking threats throughout the team. The man that is most dangerous is Darcy Graham, the diminutive winger scored a hat trick against the Bulls and if given any space he can create havoc. The Stormers will welcome back Springbok Damian Willemse as he lines up in the 12 jersey. His contest with opposite number James Lang promises to be one of the highlights of the match. The home team has the stronger bench and this will prove to be the deciding factor. I am predicting a home win by nine points.
