URC Final: How will the Glasgow Warriors beat the Bulls?

Another area where Glasgow were strong against Munster was set pieces – and they will have to do that again on Saturday.

If the Bulls can get the ball on offense, it will be incredibly difficult for Glasgow to get back into the swing of things against a team that has won its last six games in a row.

“The Bulls dominated the scrum against Leinster, which is essentially the Irish national team,” added Brown.

“The game against Munster was partly decided by how difficult it was for Munster to win a clean ball at the lineout.

“Glasgow have managed to disrupt the ball and that will play a big role again this weekend. If they can do that, it will slow the momentum a little bit.”

When Glasgow has possession of the ball, they are put under pressure by a typically South African blitz defense.

The Bulls will try to block Glasgow’s options and force the team to play tight.

However, a feature of the Warriors’ attack is the depth with which they play, and if scrum-half George Horne can get to the ball quickly, they may still be able to unlock their in-form back three.

Paterson also believes Glasgow should rely on their talented midfield to overcome the winning line, with Sione Tuipulotu and Huw Jones again partnering each other in the middle.

“If Glasgow can break through the midfield line, they will go on the offensive,” he said.

“If they can’t overcome this flying defense, they will come under pressure”

Glasgow start in Pretoria as underdogs, but have proven repeatedly this season that they cannot be written off.
