Bulls v WP
Currie Cup Round 6
I have unfortunately got WP wrong five out of five. In the five games I went against WP 4 times and for them once which they also lost. I am obviously talking about the handicap here, WP have won five out of five games. WP Look the business, they have brassed Lions and Sharks, the other competitive teams away with relative ease.
Boks are back
Western Province will welcome a couple of Boks back, will this make a difference or not, time will tell. Bulls on the other hand have won three in a row, but make no mistake the home team is not the favourite.
Bulls lost to the Lions and Sharks, both were nowhere near the WP. Initially the minus looked good here, but I have thought about this game a bit and have come to the conclusion that given the start the Bulls have, it makes sense to back the home team.
Bulls won the away game v Cheetahs, they were outsiders. Next game the Bulls went to Durban and I called them correctly and they got smashed. Bulls then hosted Lions and got done at home in a game they should have won. Against the Lions the Bulls led most of the match and gave it up in similar scenes to Bok’s v all blacks last week.
The Bulls have not looked convincing at all, in fact the clever punters will most likely be on Bulls by any minus. I feel there is a little value backing them at current levels.
My call here is a medium strike and a split bet, some on the plus and some on the board.
Kick off is scheduled for 17h15 GMT +2 on Saturday at Loftus. The referee for this game will be Egon Seconds (SA), Click here for the Weather in Pretoria and if you want to follow the game on Twitter click here for the Hashtag #BULvWP
