WP v Bulls
Currie Cup 2nd Semi Final
WP v Bulls Currie Cup Semi Final. Bulls head south for their second go at WP. All signs point to an emphatic victory for the Cape lads. Such has been their season so far, no team has come close. Sharks if any team has been competitive, could say they had a chance. Sharks opened the scoring and at HT were within three.
WP closed the game out like they have done multiple times this campaign. Mr Dobson has got the best out of his boys and they are deserved favourites on Saturday. Those who have followed my previews for some time now know I have gone against WP loads of times.
A Big Victory on the Cards?
I did go for them in the clash v Griquas but for some reason WP could not close that game out and eventually beat a low minus quoted, but missed on my punt which was around the 33pt line.
WP have gelled so well together it is hard to see anything other than a WP victory come Saturday. By the tie kick off happens WP will know who their opponents are should they make the Final. I know that my Durban mates are hoping, I say hoping because that is just a pipe dream. They are really dream though. Bulls have almost no chance.
Last week WP forwards dominated like none other, sure you can blame the weather, but realistically us Bulls plus punters were lucky to get a refund last week. Bulls will have their work cut out for them this weekend. They have watched the videos, they will try to do what no other team has been capable of doing. Beating WP
I am going to go for the Bulls again, yes you probably think I am crazy, but honestly at +17.5 it’s just seems too much for a semi-final. Quotes were in the low twenties just a couple of days ago and whilst they have come down a bit, there was clearly money for the men from Pretoria. I do believe the Bulls have a chance in decent weather to stay within seventeen. The call is not very confident, but I cannot see them getting thumped. Nor can I see the Bulls winning. I put the result closer to the ten or twelve line.
Kick off is scheduled for 17h05 GMT +2 on Saturday at Newlands. The referee for this game will be Egon Seconds (SA), Click here for the Weather in Cape Town and if you want to follow the game on Twitter click here for the Hashtag #WPvBUL
