Aviva Premiership Predictions: Rd 5

I said in my review of last week’s matches (R4) that it should get easier to pick winners now that we’ve seen the form from all the clubs. I was wrong (no change there then) – looking at the line-ups for week 5 there are some very close calls (at least it seems that way […]

With just a few sleeps until the Premiership rugby season kicks off, the excitement is building for what promises to be an exciting build up to the autumn tours, new rugby Champions Cup, 6 nations and then the World Cup. Blimey – I’m out of breath just typing this! So – once again it’s time for […]

Aviva Premiership Final – 20 Reflections

Northampton Saints win Aviva Premiership

There are already a number of serious reviews of Saturday’s Premiership Final – with today’s technology some of them were probably online before the bloody game kicked off! Almost certainly they will all be better than anything I come up with – not least since I forgot to take my glasses to the match and […]

The ‘route’ of all evil?

Pile of Money

The regular season is over and I want to look forward to next term and the likely effect on the Premiership of all the new money that is about to slosh about from the TV deals. This sounds like pretty good news for all involved although there have been some concerns expressed that it might […]

Last Four Standing At half-time yesterday all six of my predictions made it look like I knew what I was talking about and I almost tweeted as much. Luckily I didn’t, as the second 40 saw two of them go pear shaped (a bit like some props I know). Still, I’ll settle for 4 out […]

Almost Home Come Sunday night I’m pretty sure that most of the remaining questions for this season will be answered. I think we’ might know the top 4 and it will be confirmed that Worcester will be in the Championship from September. These things are, however, not certain and it is just possible that some […]

Still Much to Play For On the face of it I did pretty well with my predictions this week – 5 out of 6 ain’t bad and it helped shove my overall percentage for the season back up a little from last week. However, the statistics hide the fact that the one game I got […]

Chris Ashton, Saracens

Expect More Drama With just 3 games to go until the play-offs (and European places) are decided, it is inevitable that there are going to be some big clashes on all three of the final weekends in the Premiership. First up on Friday night Harlequins take on the Tigers at the Stoop. If Quins can […]

It Could have been Worse! In the end my predictions weren’t too bad – 4 out of 6 is just about acceptable, but has pushed my overall % record for the season down into the low 70s!  Mind you it could have been a lot worse. Friday night my ‘guess’ that the Sharks would continue […]

Kick Off Anyone who read my predictions for the weekend games in the Premiership should be having a good laugh just now. It started badly – the middle was poor and it went right downhill at the end. In the previous 17 rounds I have never scored below 66% (alright 66.66% recurring to be pedantic) […]
