Bulls vs Edinburgh Predictions


The Bulls were exceptionally good at home last season and got this season off to a winning start. Edinburgh were however very good last weekend too so I can see them getting within 11 points of their hosts.

Head to Head


The Bulls lost 17-10 at Edinburgh last season. That was their only previous encounter.

Bulls Form


The Bulls reached the final of the 2021/22 United Rugby Championship season. Once there they lost to the Stormers at the Cape Town Stadium.

It was an impressive campaign by Jake White’s side. After all it was their first season in Europe so the feat was very unexpected.

The Bulls got their season underway last weekend with a convincing 31-15 away victory over the Lions. The Pretoria-based outfit hardly looked in trouble despite not being at their fluent best so early in the season.

Bulls Injuries & Team News


Johan Goosen is still injured but should return in the coming weeks. Jake White is likely to keep a similar side to last week.

Edinburgh Form


Edinburgh just made it into the playoffs of the URC last season but lost in the first knock-out round. They will be looking for a minimum of another playoff qualification.

The Scot side got off to a strong start last weekend, thrashing the Newport Dragons 44-6 at home. Defensively Edinburgh dominated the game and they took their scoring opportunities with aplomb. 

An away trip to the losing finalists last season is however a daunting prospect. Winning away from home in the URC is generally tough but they did beat the Bulls at home last season.

Edinburgh Injuries & Team News


After a strong opening performance I’d imagine Edinburgh won’t be making wholesale changes. The traveling might allow for a couple of changes to keep the side fresh.

Verdict

Edinburgh were very convincing last weekend albeit on home soil. They will arrive at Loftus with confidence so I'm backing them to go down by less than 11 points.
