Cardiff Blues vs Bulls Predictions


The Bulls will certainly look to bounce back after two poor performances but the Blues are looking strong. I am backing the Cardiff Blues to win by more than four points.

Head to Head


Cardiff Blues and the Bulls have never met before.

Cardiff Blues Form


Cardiff Blues had a decent campaign in last year but will be looking for a better placed finish this time around. 

The Blues began their 2021/22 campaign with a bang, beating Connacht 33-21 on home soil. It was a superb performance against a strong Irish outfit. 

In a Welsh derby last week, the Cardiff Blues came up just short (18-14) at Ospreys. The match was extremely tight, as derbies normally are, but it was the big moments that Ospreys won.

Cardiff Blues Injuries & Team News


Cardiff are not expected to make too many changes. They have performed well this season despite defeat last weekend.

Bulls Form


The Bulls have perhaps been the biggest disappointment in the opening two weeks of the United Rugby Championship. They came into the tournament off the back defending their Currie Cup title and are largely considered the best South African side.

The men from Pretoria had a tough start away at Leinster, losing 31-3. It wasn’t completely unexpected given Leinster’s form over the last few years and the fact that the Bulls have a young squad.

But things got worse for the Bulls as they went down 34-7 to Connacht last weekend. It was a timid display from the Bulls as they were outplayed in every aspect.

Bulls Injuries & Team News


David Kriel, Madosh Tambwe and Kurl-Lee Arendse all make a return to the starting lineup this weekend.

Embrose Papier also makes his first start at scrumhalf after a lengthy injury layoff.

Verdict

The Bulls have lost consecutive games by more than 25 points. I can't see them getting close to the Blues in Cardiff, therefore I'm backing the hosts to cover the -4 handicap.
