27-11-2022 Daily Predictions United Rugby Championship Sharks vs Cardiff

Sharks vs Cardiff

The Sharks welcomes Cardiff to Hollywoodbets Kings Park for this match in the United rugby Championship. Both teams lost their last match in the competition and will be eager to return to winning ways. The home team are currently in 7th place on the log while the Sharks are in 9th spot, only two points behind their opponents in this match. The Sharks know that it is paramount for them to win their home matches if they are to make the playoffs. They have however played two less games than Cardiff.

TIP: The Sharks are severely depleted in their squad as many of their players are unavailable due to Springbok call ups. Cardiff will look to take advantage of this but they have also lost a few players to the Welsh national team. The Sharks will be hoping that they are able to secure a win as all their international stars will be back in their ranks from next week. The bookies have the Sharks as favourites for this match and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.10, Playabets 1.11 and Sunbet 1.12


Sharks vs Cardiff

  • In the only previous meeting between these sides, Cardiff won 23-17.

Latest results for both teams

Wales lost 13-12 to Georgia in their last match while Australia lost 13-10 against Ireland in their last match.


The Sharks have been the most inconsistent team in the competition since its inception but they will be hoping the appointment of former national Sevens coach Neil Powell will bring the much needed consistency to their game. A lot will depend on how the Sharks halfbacks perform as they hold the key to releasing their potent backline. Cardiff will look to their experienced loose trio to disrupt the Sharks ball at the rucks, thus denying them quick ball. If the Sharks can get their rolling maul to function, then they will win this match at a canter. We are predicting a Sharks win by 20 points.
