Bulls:

 

The Bulls lost 3 of their 4 matches on tour and went into the break with only Zebre below them in the standings.

 

The Bulls first 2 matches were both staged in Ireland and they lost 31-3 to Leinster and 34-7 to Connacht. In Round 3 the Bulls kick started their tournament with a 29-19 win over Cardiff. They were given around 4.5 points start on the handicap and fought back from 16-3 down to run out worthy winners.

 

On the back of that first win hopes were high the Bulls could go in again when they took on Edinburgh on 16th October, they were given a 2.5 point start on the handicap but went down 17-10.

 

World Sports Betting's outright market has Leinster odds on favourites to win the tournament at 6/10, Munster are 9/2, Ulster 10/1 and the Bulls are now a 18/1 chance, the shortest price of any SA side.

 

Munster:

 

Munster have played 5 matches, winning 4 and losing 1 and they went into the international break in third position in the overall standings, 1 point behind Ulster and 5 shy of Leinster.

 

Munster began their tournament with a 42-17 win over the Sharks, a game where the pre-match betting handicap proved to be on the button. They followed up with a 34-18 home win over the Stormers who were given around 24.5 points start on the cap.

 

Thereafter Munster put the Scarlets to the sword away from home, edged out Connacht in a home game before suffering their only defeat, 18-10 away to the Ospreys.
