Cobras vs Selknam Predictions


This has the ability to be the match of the weekend with the teams very closely matched. Selknam have a good record against the Cobras, but the hosts did win on home soil last season.

I am backing the Cobras for an outright win.

  • Cobas have won 1 of their last 2 matches.
  • Cobras beat Selknam in their last home game against them.
  • Selknam lost their last match.
  • Selknam have won 3 of their last 4 matches against Cobras.

Head to Head


Last season, both teams won their home fixture against each other. Selknam won 33-17 at home while Cobras were 30-24 winners on home soil.

Cobras Form


The Cobras have made a decent start to the Super Rugby Americas season with one win and a defeat in their opening two games. Unfortunately, the Brazilian side failed to pick up any bonus points in those games.

On the opening weekend, the Cobras won a nailbiter at home 15-13 against Penarol. They couldn’t back it up last Saturday though as they went down 29-13 at home to Dogos XV.

For much of the game the Cobras competed well against a superior Dogos outfit. Overall, they will be relatively pleased with their performance despite the loss.

Cobras Injuries & Team News


There were some injury concerns last weekend so we may see a few changes this time around.

Selknam Form


Selkam have only played one game this season, unlike the majority of teams who have played two. They lost that game on the opening weekend.

Traveling to Yacare is not easy so Selknam will take some positives from the 34-20 defeat. They looked strong on attack at times but will need to learn how to finish off their opportunities.

Selknam Injuries & Team News


Having only played one game, Selknam will still have a fresh group of players. I don’t expect many unforced changes to their side.

Verdict

Cobras are backed to win a tight contest at home.
