URC Last Week’s Action

The penultimate round of matches in the United Rugby Championship will take place across the coming weekend, with teams looking for important points in their quest to finish in a playoff position.

Only the top eight will progress through to the knockout stage of the competition, with four teams already having assured their progression to the quarterfinals. But, which teams could enhance their chances of reaching the next stage this weekend?

 

Edinburgh vs Munster

Important action in the United Rugby Championship will take place on Friday, as Edinburgh look to enhance their chances of reaching the knockout stage. The Scottish team come into this round sitting seventh in the overall standings, meaning that they boast an eight-point advantage over ninth-place Connacht. A victory on Friday would almost certainly mean that they will be playing in the quarterfinals.

However, they will come up against one of the most dominant teams in the competition in the form of Munster. The Irish club will still have their sights set on finishing top of the standings, as they currently sit two points adrift of Glasgow Warriors. Home advantage could be crucial this weekend, meaning we could see Edinburgh landing a fourth straight victory to edge nearer to the knockout stage.

Bulls vs Benetton URC Match

Benetton have defied expectations this season, as the Italian side could achieve their first ever finish in the playoff spots. They have been in the United Rugby Championship since 2021, and they are on course to achieve their best ever finish. The Italian team comes into this penultimate round after winning ten of their 16 matches this season, which gives them a four-point cushion over Connacht at this late stage.

However, the Bulls could be the value play this weekend. The South African team will have home field advantage, and they currently boast the best attacking record after scoring 557 points this term. They could yet make a late charge for top spot in the standings, but they will have a four-point disadvantage to overturn against the Warriors.
