150stormersRound 14 of Super Rugby sees the Stormers head to Hong Kong for Saturday’s clash with the a Sunwolves side who chalked up their first win of the season last week.

 

 

Sunwolves v Stormers, Saturday 19th May, Hong Kong, KO 07:15 (South African time)

Referee: Nicholas Berry (Australia)
Assistant referees: Shuhei Kubo (Japan), Tasuku Kawahara (Japan)
Television match official: Minoru Fuji (Japan)

Weather Forecast

Sunwolves:

The Sunwolves bring Super Rugby to Hong Kong and they arrive in good spirits after beating the Reds 63-28 in Tokyo last week. That was their first win of the season so far adding to their 2 losing bonus points which were earned at home to the Brumbies (lost 32-25) in Tokyo in Round 2 and away to the Lions (lost 40-38) in Johannesburg in Round 5.

In addition to the narrow defeat to the Lions the only game against South African opposition this season came back in Round 4 when they were beaten 50-22 by the Sharks in Durban.

Since joining the tournament in 2016 the Sunwolves have won 1 of 9 home fixtures against South African sides, 21-20 at home to the Bulls last season and the Stormers survived a mighty scare in drawing in Singapore a year earlier.

Stormers:

Round 13 saw the Stormers suffer their first home defeat of the campaign as they went down 15-9 to the Chiefs. They now travel again and away form has a been the big problem all season with the Stormers having lost all 6 on the road, 3 SA derby matches, 2 in New Zealand and 1 in Australia, picking up just 2 losing bonus points in the process.

Coming into Round 14 the Stormers were bottom of the South African Conference with a record of 5 wins and 7 defeats and although only 1 point covers the teams placed from second to fifth, the Stormers have played 1 game more than Jaguares, Bulls and the Sharks.

The Betting

Handicap

Sunwolves +10.5 points 9/10 widely available

Stormers -9.5 points 9/10 WSB

Note, odds quoted are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change.

Betting Angle

I was surprised that the Sunwolves beat the Reds last week and even more so by the margin but on that evidence if the Stormers are not on top of their game they could well come unstuck here. The Stormers poor away record is well documented and they have had problems when visiting this opposition before. I’ll take the view the current plus might be enough.

Bet: 3.5 units Sunwolves +10.5 points 9/10 widely available
