Pumas v Stormers, Betting Preview & Prediction


The Pumas play their first fixture at home in Nelspruit having lost by 22 points to the Cheetahs on the road and then stunning the Griquas, beating them by 6 points also on the road.  They were certainly much improved against Griquas having been blown away in the first-half against the Cheetahs where they conceded over 40 points.

Stormers got off to a rusty start last week eventually hanging on to beat the Lions 23-17 having had a bye in Week 1. 

Looking back at recent Currie Cup head to head matches hosted by the Pumas they were well beaten 57-28 in 2018, but beat WP 22-12 in 2017.
