30-04-2022 Daily Predictions United Rugby Championship Stormers vs Leinster

Stormers vs Leinster

The Stormers have been on fire as they have won six consecutive matches. The top two teams battle it out in this match although Leinster have a weakened squad. Despite not having all their star players they still had five internationals in their team for the last match. The Stormers easily overcame Glasgow in their last match as their defence carried them to win. They kept the Scottish side scoreless for the last 60 minutes of the match. Leinster struggled in the scrums in their last match and no doubt the Stormers will look to attack them in this area.

TIP: The Stormers have used their driving maul to great effect this season and this will be an avenue they will look to attack from as Leinster had a very poor maul defence in their last match. The Stormers are a very forward orientated but have some of the best backline players in the competition like Warrick Gelant who has been brilliant this season. If he is given any space he will make Leinster pay. The bookies have the Bulls as favourites and I also tip them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.25, Playabets 1.28 and Sunbet 1.30.

Latest results for both teams

The Stormers won 32-7 against Glasgow in their last match while Leinster lost 28-23 in their last match against the Sharks.

PREDICTION

There have been many stand out players in the competition this season but arguably the player of the season thus far has been Evan Roos. He has been the form number 8 this season and is almost unstoppable and it always take two or more players to bring him down. His battle with Max Deegan promises to be one of the highlights of the match.The Leinster players that stood out in their last match were Ciarán Frawley and Tommy O’Brien who combined well for one of Leinster’s tries. The Stormers will be banking on their stronger pack to get them the win. I predict a Stormers win by more than 10 points

Predictions and Odds in details

There are many areas that the Stormers seem to have the edge in but the contest between the loose forwards could decide the outcome of this match. Deon Fourie has been having a dream season and has the most turnovers at the breakdown. Leinster will need to clear him out early otherwise he will have a field day at their expense. There are poor odds on the Stormers outright win therefore we suggest the home team on the handicap for better returns. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (-9.5) 1.91, Sunbet (-9.5) 1.83 and Playabets (-9.5) 1.86
