Edinburgh vs Stormers Predictions


While the Stormers have lost both matches, one was by two points and the other was a very good performance against Munster. They look dangerous with ball in hand and can trouble the hosts. I am backing the Stormers to get within 10 points.

  • Edinburgh lost their last match to Benetton.
  • Stormers have lost their last 2 matches by 4 and 17 points.

Head to Head


This will be the first match between Edinburgh and the Stormers.

Edinburgh Form


Edinburgh made a strong start to the 2021/22 United Rugby Championship and will be hopeful of improving on last season. 

In week one of the URC, Edinburgh were impressive on home soil, beating Scarlets 26-22. A trip to Benetton followed, a match Edinburgh would expect to win.

It all looked promising as the Scots built a commanding lead, but Benetton fought back with the home crowd right behind them. By the final whistle Edinburgh had narrowly lost out 28-27.

This weekend offers Edinburgh the chance of redemption and they know how crucial home form is in this competition. The Stormers should however provide a stern test.

Edinburgh Injuries & Team News


Edinburgh coach has handed debuts to prop Luan de Bruin and Argentine wing Ramiro Moyano.

Stormers Form


The Stormers came into the United Rugby Championship struggling for form after a disappointing Currie Cup campaign. Performances have been very inconsistent in 2021 which could be expected given the inexperience within the squad.

The Cape Town-based outfit lost their opening URC match 22-18 to Benetton. While it was close, the Stormers were poor in many aspects, especially set pieces.

Last week the Stormers were superb for the opening 20 minutes as they raced into a 15-0 lead against a very strong Munster side. Unfortunately ill-discipline and their poor set piece bit them again as they lost 34-28 away.
