Ulster vs Bulls Predictions

Ulster will be determined to get the win this weekend with a chance of second still up for grabs. The Bulls are also desperate for points as the playoffs slowly start slipping away.

At home however Ulster are very good. I can see them winning by more than nine points.

  • Ulster have won 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • Ulster are 3rd on the URC table.
  • Bulls have lost their last 3 matches.
  • Bulls are 6th on the URC table.

Head to Head

Bulls beat Ulster 34-16 at home last season. That was their only previous encounter.

Ulster Form

Ulster are looking good at the moment in third place on the table. They have 54 points with 10 wins and five defeats in 15 games.

Victory here, particularly one with a bonus point could push them up into third should the Stormers lose to Leinster on Friday night. Ulster have won four of their last five matches with their sole defeat coming away against Glasgow.

Since that defeat Ulster have beaten the Sharks 31-24 away and Cardiff 42-20, also on the road.

Ulster Injuries & Team News

It is unlikely that Ulster will be at full strength come Saturday. With Ireland having won the Six Nations, some key players may be rested.

Bulls Form

The Bulls are currently sixth on the URC table on 43 points. They were well placed a few months ago but have been in terrible form over the last few game weeks.

Since beating Exeter and Lyon to advance in the European Champions Cup, the Bulls have lost their last three URC matches. They went down 37-28 at the Scarlets, then lost 23-19 at home to the Stormers.

Last seasons runners-up suffered a shock defeat in their last match, going down 29-25 at home to the Lions. That result could cost them dearly come the end of the season.

Bulls Injuries & Team News

Jake White has a full-strength squad from which to pick. With the internationals returning from camp, he has little option but to go at full strength given the situation they find themselves in.


Ulster are very strong at home and are backed to cover the -9 handicap against the out of form Bulls.
