25-09-2022 Daily Predictions United Rugby Championship Dragons vs Munster

Both teams had disastrous starts to their URC challenge as the Dragons were blown away 44-6 by Edinburgh while Munster were beaten 20-13 by Cardiff. These teams can take little comfort from the fact that they lost on the road. The Dragons in particular will be under pressure to get a win in their first home match of the season. They have an awful record against Munster, winning only one of their previous 10 meetings. Munster will welcome back a number of international players for this match so they will start as favourites.

TIP: The Dragons will be looking to new signings Sio Tomkinson and JJ Hanrahan to provide them with the impetus in their first match in front of the home fans. Tomkinson in particular is a robust type of player and will always get over the advantage line. His match up against Munster new signing Malakai Fekitoa promises to be one of the highlights of the match. The bookies have Munster as favourites and I also tip them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.12, Playabets 1.14 and Sunbet 1.12

PREDICTION

The Munster side is loaded with Irish internationals as they seek to avoid two successive defeats while the Dragons also have international players in Ross Moriarty and Taine Basham. These two players will be critical to the breakdown area as they are excellent over the ball. If they can slow the Munster ball down then they will have an outside chance of causing an upset. The visitors have one of the most potent back three’s in the competition therefore the Dragons need to be accurate with their kicking. I am predicting a Munster win by 20 points.
