Stormers vs Edinburgh

The form team of the competition, the Stormers welcome Edinburgh to the Cape Town Stadium for this quarter final clash in the URC. The home team are on an eight game winning run in the competition and their four losses this season is the least amount of defeats for any team. Edinburgh had an excellent 28 -11 win over local rivals Glasgow in their last match and will be looking to bring that form into this match. They will need to be at their very best to beat the Stormers. Over the years the home team have not performed well in playoff matches and will want to change that in this match.

TIP: One of the most interesting battles in this match will be at scrum time as five of the six front rowers in this match are full internationals. The man that will be under the most pressure will be young JJ Kotze as he will be playing hooker in the biggest game of his life. Both teams love to run the ball so we could see an exciting game if the teams stick to keeping the ball in hand. 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 1.28, Playabets 1.26 and Sunbet 1.26


Stormers vs Edinburgh

  • These teams have only met once before and the match ended in a 20-20 draw.

Latest results for both teams

The Stormers won their last match 26-21 against the Scarlets while Edinburgh beat Glasgow 28-11 in their last match.


It is not very often that a match involves two flyhalves that rather run the ball than kick but that is exactly the situation we have in this match. Both Manie Libbok and Blair Kinghorn are brilliant running tens and if they play their normal game then the potent backlines of both teams will be a pleasure to watch. The other intriguing battle will be the contest between the two sets of loose trios. One of the players of the competition so far has been Stormers eighth man Evan Roos and he will be up against experienced Scottish internationals which will really test him. The overall quality of the Stormers makes me predict a home win by less than 10 points.

Predictions and Odds in details

The Stormers pack have seen them get the better of all their opponents which has allowed Libbok the freedom to roam the field and launch their attacks but the Edinburgh team look like they can match the home team physically. There are great wingers on both sides but Darcy Graham against Zeolin Zas stands out as the highlight. There is very little money to be made on the Stormers outright win therefore we suggest the visitors on the handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (+9.5) 1.91, Sunbet (+9.5) 1.89 and Playabets (+9.5) 1.81
