All Change It very nearly started so well for my predictions this week – on Friday night Worcester came within a second of fulfilling my forecast of their first win of the season. They were beating Wasps by 11 – 6 with time running out when Wasps with the final play, crossed for an equalising […]

Saints March On! It all started badly for my forecasts on Friday night and looked pretty sick at the halfway point in Saturday’s games. But fortune smiled on me and come the final whistle on Sunday I had managed to get 5 out of 6 predictions correct. On Friday at the Rec I had Bath […]

Saracens celebrate a try

TV Times Starting on Friday morning you could watch a feast of rugby from the Super 15, Top 14, Premiership, Internationals and women’s rugby internationals.

The Late Late Show I came within a whisker of getting a full house again this weekend – going into Sunday’s games I was 4 for 4 and for most of the two final games it looked like I would end up with a perfect forecast. It was not to be as Leicester grabbed a […]

Leicester Tigers Aviva

Second half kicks off   This weekend the Aviva Premiership moves into the second half of the season and already Saracens and Saints look favourite for the play-offs. But there is still a way to go, not least this week when there are some games that could well go either way. The first game of […]

Nearly a Triumph I came very close to getting a full house for the second week running which would have been a first. It looked very much like last week’s 6/6 predictions would be repeated but like most of my horses they stumbled at the final hurdle.   It started so well – Friday night […]

Sarries score bonus point in Parma

Last Blast The last matches of the year in the Aviva Premiership take us to the half-way stage of the season and feature some interesting match ups. Very little will be decided as we head into 2014 but it is likely that we will have a good idea of what things are likely to look […]
