Tis the Season It’s back to the Premiership this week – with further speculation that next season it might be an Anglo-Welsh league with the four regions joining the English clubs. That’s for the future for now we are looking at some interesting match ups at the weekend. The Sharks entertain London Irish on Friday […]

Five out of Six ain’t Bad I thought I’d made a pretty aggressive call with my predictions this week – going for 3 away wins (four if you count the Australia game at Cardiff). In fact I was being conservative (with an Infinitesimally small c) – there ended up being an almost unheard of 4 […]

Leicester Tigers Aviva

Who Will Blink? There are some interesting match ups this week as we move into round 9. Whilst the top 6 sides seem to be the ones that will contest the places for the play-offs this could all easily change if they slip up in games against the teams everyone expects them to win comfortably. […]

Well, I can hardly believe it myself but in my preview column for this week I predicted the results for 8 matches (6 in the Aviva Premiership plus the two Rugby […]

Close Encounters Much like last week my predictions for the weekend just gone was a bit of a dog’s breakfast! Once again I got just 50% correct, which sounds marginally better than 3 out of 6. The three I managed to get right all ended up as try bonus point wins, whereas my errors each […]

Hard Times A difficult series of matches in R3 this week. Hard to call and a Dickens of a job to get right! I wasn’t on the money in round two and it’s quite possible I could be worse this week (just to endorse how little I obviously know!) The games are as follows – […]

This season’s Aviva premiership has seen quite a few intriguing ups and downs.  With the inclusion of the IRB Rugby World Cup, a few of the big boys started the season with quite a few big guns missing from their squad some teams struggled, while some teams heavily profited. Those teams lacking their top boys […]

Round 13 in the Rabo Direct Pro 12 proved unlucky for some, with one or two unexpected results throwing the curve, and some pure entertainment thrown in for good measure. Dragons 21 – Ospreys 20 Kicking off the weekend’s action was the unexpected match of the round, with a real nail-biter from the leading Welsh […]
