Cardiff boasts an impressive recent home record, having won their last four matches at the Arms Park.

The capital region has lost only two of their previous eight matches against South African opponents, with both of those defeats coming away from home.

The Bulls have lost their last two matches, but have not lost three in succession since doing so in Super Rugby in February 2020.
