Glasgow vs Stormers
Glasgow plays host to the Stormers in this URC match at the Scotstoun Stadium. The home team were brought back to earth in their last match when they were beaten 34-26 away to Connacht. They started their campaign in excellent fashion when beat Leinster and will be looking for another home victory against the Stormers. The visitors have begun their season with two wins and will be looking for revenge after losing this fixture last season in injury time. Glasgow will be hoping all their Scottish international players will be available for this match. The Stormers will still be missing their World Cup winning Springboks but still have enough class in the team to trouble the Warriors.
TIP: Both teams love to run the ball so the match should be an exciting affair especially if the conditions are dry. Glasgow will need their forward pack to at least gain parity against a strong Stormers forward pack that includes the likes of Evan Roos Hacjivah Dayimani. The visitors have however looked a little creaky in the scrums without their former Captain Steven Kitshoff. The bookies have Glasgow as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.36, Gbets 1.37 and Hollywoodbets 1.36

Latest results for both teams
Glasgow lost 34-26 to Connacht in their last match while the Stormers beat the Scarlets 52-7 in their last match.
The Stormers were expected to struggle in the early part of the season as they were short on flyhalfs but up stepped veteran fullback Clayton Blommetjies into the ten role. He has a refreshing approach and is not afraid to run the ball out from his own half which makes for exciting rugby. The Warriors will be looking to their young flyhalf Tom Jordan to link up his excellent backline that includes the likes of Huw Jones, Kyle Steyn and Josh Mckay. If the home team are able to launch their deadly rolling maul, then the visitors could be in for a long evening. I am predicting a home win by more than 8 points.

Sports crazy fan that follows all major sport but the game with the oval ball is my real passion. Was an age level rugby coach and a huge supporter of the Springboks and diehard Liverpool man. I’m an experienced punter and sports writer whose predictions/tips are sure to stir up the emotions. I love the occasional wager on the underdog.
