Glasgow vs Sharks Preview & Tips


Glasgow should have too much quality for the Sharks on Saturday. The Durban-based outfit struggled last time out and the pace at which Glasgow play will be difficult to keep up with.

  • Glasgow have won 4 of their last 6 matches.
  • Sharks have lost their last 2 matches.
  • Sharks have lost their last 2 matches by 34 & 25 points.

Head to Head


This is the first ever meeting between Glasgow and the Sharks.

Glasgow Form


Glasgow had an average season last time out, winning six of their 16 matches in the United Rugby Championship. They finished fourth in Conference A behind Ospreys, Ulster and Leinster.

In the more recent Rainbow Cup, the Warriors fared much better, winning four of their five matches. The lack of bonus points however cost them dearly they fell three points off top spot.

The 2021/22 season did not start too well for Glasgow as they went down 35-29 at Ulster. The bonus point for losing by less than seven will be some consolation considering how tough it is to get results in Ulster.

Glasgow Team News


Glasgow Warriors are expected to go into this match with much the same side that played last weekend. No serious injuries have been reported.

Sharks Form


The Sharks made the Currie Cup final earlier this season but lost 44-10 to the Bulls in that final. It was not the strongest of competitions as there were no international players.

Of all the South African sides the Sharks are the hardest hit by the lack of international players. Five of their players started for South Africa last weekend with quite a few more in the broader squad.

Last week the Sharks lost their first ever United Rugby Championship fixture 42-17 to Munster. They had a very good opening 20 minutes but failed to score the points to put pressure on their hosts. Once Munster got into he game it was an uphill struggle for the men from Durban.

Sharks Team News


Sean Everitt has made three changes to his side. Fez Mbatha, Ruben van Heerden and Murray Koster all come into the side.

Glasgow will be confident of beating the Sharks after the South African side got hammered last weekend. I am backing the hosts to cover the -9 handicap.
