15-10-2022 Daily Predictions United Rugby Championship Sharks vs Glasgow

Sharks vs Glasgow

The Sharks suffered their first loss of the season in their last match against Leinster. They were neck and neck with the Irish giants going into the final quarter before Leinster pulled away to win 54-34 in the last 20 minutes. Glasgow had no such problems as they upset the Bulls in their last match 35-21. They were able to match the Bulls team physically which is no mean feat and it remains to be seen if they can repeat that performance two weeks in a row.

TIP: The Sharks have handed a debut to Springbok star Eben Etzebeth in this match and the giant lock will be keen to start his career in Durban with a win. The Glasgow team have been excellent in their home games but have struggled on the road. They have lost their last seven away matches across all competitions. The Scottish team will be desperate to earn their first away win. The bookies have the Sharks as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.16, Playabets 1.18 and Sunbet 1.20

HEAD TO HEAD STATS

Sharks vs Glasgow

  • Glasgow won 35-24 in these teams only previous meeting.

Latest results for both teams

The Sharks lost 54-34 to Leinster in their last match while Glasgow beat the Bulls 35-21 in their last match.

PREDICTION

The Sharks have selected a forwards pack that is very powerful and they will  no doubt look to dominate the Glasgow team up front. The home team have the obvious advantage in the scrums and the driving maul. They also have a complete Springbok front row on the bench so the visitors can expect an 80 minute onslaught from the Sharks. The home team have brought in Springbok scrumhalf Jaden Hendrikse for this match and if he can link up with flyhalf Boeta Chamberlain then the Glasgow team can expect a long afternoon. I am predicting a Sharks win by 15 points.
