Stormers vs Munster

The Stormers welcome Munster to Cape Town for this crucial URC match.Both these teams were knocked out of the Champions Cup in their last matches. The Stormers lost to Exeter Chiefs in the quarter finals while Munster were dumped out by the Sharks in the round of 16. The only hope of silverware for these teams is this competition and both sides will be chasing home ground advantage in the playoffs. The home team will be disappointed with their showing last time out and will be glad to  be back at their fortress in Cape Town. Munster will be looking for a much better performance than what they put on when they last visited the country as they were thrashed 50-35 by the Sharks.

TIP: The Stormers have their destination in their own hands as two wins will guarantee them second spot and a home playoff position for the quarter finals. Munster needs to win their remaining two matches and hope that other results go their way for them to secure a home playoff. The home team will again be without Deon Fourie and he was sorely missed in the defeat to the Chiefs. The bookies have the Stormers as favourites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.40, Gbets 1.40 and Hollywoodbets 1.42


Stormers vs Munster

  • The only previous meeting between the teams was won 34-18 by Munster.

Latest results for both teams

The Stormers were beaten 42-17 by Exeter in their match while Munster were beaten 50-35 by the Sharks in their last match.


The Stormers will be looking to regain their attacking shape that went missing in the last match while Munster will be looking for a better defensive effort as they shipped 50 points the last time out. The home team love running the ball from anywhere and will be looking to their talismatic number 10, Mannie Libbok to lead the attack. Munster will be looking to their all international halfback pairing of Joey Carberry and Craig Casey to launch their dangerous backline that includes the likes of Mike Haley and Antoine Frisch. The Stormers have the advantage in the forwards and this is the reason I am predicting a home win by 10 points.
