17-09-2022 Daily Predictions United Rugby Championship Cardiff vs Munster

Cardiff vs Munster

Cardiff and Munster will be looking to get their URC campaigns of to a good start after having indifferent results in the last season. The home team finished in 14th position and failed to make the playoffs while Munster finished in 6th place but were eliminated in the quarter finals by Ulster. The home team has recruited well in the off season as they have signed Welsh internationals Liam Williams, Taulupe Faletau and Thomas Young. The acquisition of the two Lions,Williams and Faletau,are great scoops for this team.

TIP: Munster have not selected their strongest team for this match and that is a very surprising decision in the competition opener they have sent an under strength team. New signing Malakai Fekitoa will however make his debut in this match and the battle between the former All Black and Samoan Rey Lee-Lo in the midfield should be on of the highlights of the match.The bookies have Cardiff as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.83, Playabets 1.81 and Sunbet 1.80

Latest results for both teams

This is the first match of the season for both teams.

PREDICTION

The new signings for Cardiff will be determined to start their new venture with a win but they won’t have an easy task against a Munster side they have not beaten in the last six matches. Cardiff look to have the stronger team especially since Munster have not included their Irish internationals. The home team love to keep the ball in hand and this will  be the perfect opportunity for them to run the Munster team ragged. Cardiff also have the edge in the forwards and will use their driving maul to great effect. I am predicting a home win by 12 points.
