Ulster vs Leinster Predictions


This will be a tightly fought Irish derby in the URC. Ulster are slight favourites and after beating Leinster twice last season, I’m backing the hosts to get this one over the line.

Head to Head


Leinster have won six of their last eight matches against Ulster but both games last season went Ulster’s way. The last of which was an 18-13 home win for Ulster.

Ulster Form


Ulster come into this huge Irish derby top of the United Rugby Championship table. They have two wins from their two matches, both achieved with a four-try bonus point.

The lead at the top of the table over Leinster is only on points difference though with Ulster’s opponents only six points worse off.

Ulster began their season with an impressive 36-10 bonus point win over fellow Irish side Connacth at home. Last week was perhaps an even better performance as Ulster beat Scarlets 55-39 away from home. Defensively Ulster may be slightly worried conceding 39 points.

Ulster Injuries & Team News


Ulster have named their strongest available side for this Irish derby. Stuart McCloskey and Luke Marshall have a tough night in midfield against Ireland internationals Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose.

Leinster Form


Leinster are second on the URC table with two bonus point wins from their two matches to date. Ulster are ahead of them on points difference.

In the opening week the former champions struggled to beat Zebre 33-29 away from home. It was a typically erratic opening weekend performance but the win was crucial.

Last week, on home soil, Leinster defeated Benetton 42-10. It was a dominant performance but the truth is that Leinster have played two of the weaker sides in the opening two weekends with this being their first real test.

Leinster Injuries & Team News


Sexton and Ryan return to the Leinster squad after injury. They will start on the bench.

Verdict

Ulster have won their last two matches against Leinster. Both sides are unbeaten this season so a tight contest can be expected. I'm backing Ulster to win narrowly.
