Cardiff vs Stormers

Cardiff come into this match on the back of two wins so they will be full of confidence. They were very impressive in beating the Dragons and the Scarlets. The Stormers on the other hand are still unbeaten this season but lost their perfect record in the last match as they were held to a draw against Ospreys. The match was played in terrible weather conditions which did not suit the Stormers style of play. Both teams are missing a number of their stars so it will be an interesting match.

TIP: The Stormers have selected an all Springbok front row for this match so the Cardiff front row will have their work cut out in this match. The visitors will be hoping for better weather so they can get their running game going. Cardiff have shown great fighting spirit in the last two games and it remains to be seen if they can bring the same intensity three games in a row. 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 1.47, Playabets 1.45 and Sunbet 1.48


Cardiff vs Stormers

  • The Stormers won the only previous match between the sides 40-3.
  • Latest results for both teams

Cardiff beat the Dragons 31-14 in their last match while the Stormers drew 16-16 with Ospreys.


Cardiff will be looking for revenge in this match as they were embarrassed 40-3 when these sides met in Cape Town. The home team will need a monstrous effort from their forwards as the Stormers have a great pack. The man that the visitors will be looking at to steer them to victory is Manie Libbok. The flyhalf has been in great form and showed that he can play in the wet as he controlled the game expertly against the Ospreys. The Stormers have the stronger bench and they will prove the difference between the teams. I am backing the visitors to win by 12 points.
