Bulls vs Glasgow Preview


The Bulls are favourites at home against Glasgow but the visitors showed what they can do away from home last weekend. It is not the final many expected, but it should be a tight contest with six points separating these sides just a few weeks ago.

  • Bulls beat Glasgow by 6 points at home 6 weeks ago.
  • Bulls have won 12 of their last 13 home matches.
  • Glasgow have lost 3 of their last 5 away matches.
  • Glasgow have lost their last 2 matches in South Africa.

Head to Head


The Bulls beat the Warriors 40-34 at Loftus a month and a half back. I expect a similarly tight contest.

Bulls Form


The Bulls have had a stellar season after finishing second on the table, just a point off Munster. They have now reached their second final in three years – they lost the other to the Stormers in Cape Town.

Jake White’s side went on to beat Benetton at home in the quarter-final, before last week, again at home, seeing off Leinster 25-20. Despite playing in Pretoria, Leinster went into the game as favourites but the Bulls produced a stunning performance.

The Pretoria-based side were probably expecting to travel to face Munster, but Glasgow’s win has handed them a great opportunity to win their first URC title.

Bulls Injuries & News


The Bulls, despite missing three internationals last weekend, were superb. I don’t see Jake White making too many changing, especially when those three are out for the season.

Glasgow Form


Glasgow finished fourth on the URC table but only three points separated them and Munster at the top. In fact, all top four sides won 13 games during the regular season.

Glasgow went on to beat the Stormers 27-10 at home in the quarter-final. Last week, against great odds, the Warriors produced an excellent away win against Munster by 17-10.

Traveling to South Africa for the final a day later will not make it easy for them, but a similar performance to last week and they will be in with a shout.

Glasgow Injuries & News


Glasgow may look to make one or two changes considering the travel arrangements. That will only be decided later in the week.

Verdict

I am backing the Bulls to win the title but Glasgow to get within the nine-point handicap. My best bet is for the Bulls to lead at half time and full time.
