Back into Europe this weekend with a few tasty encounters, off the back a good winning treble last weekend we look to continue winning with 4 games I want to get involved in
Bath vs Harlequins 10/1/20 7:45 ko
We start with Friday night lights at the Rec. Bath have made wholesale changes, with only Watson keeping his place at the back. Quinn’s have made a few changes themselves, Marcus Smith missis out, but the welcome back both Sinclair and Dombrandt. These two make such a difference to Quins with their ball carrying ability, and they will make the difference in this match, even with the inexperience at 10, they have enough with DC at 9 to be able to control the tempo of the match and play in the right areas of the pitch.
quins -1 handicap Evs Will Hill, other 10/11 – (WON)
Glasgow vs Exeter Chiefs 11/1/20 3:15 ko
There is no better form team in Europe than Exeter at the moment, they look so strong in every part of their game, there is a real balance to their side, and there is no team more ruthless than them when they get into the opponents 22. Glasgow will play with a lot of heart as they still have a sniff of a best runners up spot, but that’s not really realistic. Exeter’s full park game will be too much for the boys north of the border
Exeter -5 handicap 10/11 most major bookies – (lost)
Connaught vs Toulouse 11/1/20 3:15 ko
The sports ground in Galway is a fantastic little atmospheric ground, and I expect the French to get a good reception there on Saturday. There won’t be an upset though, Toulouse have shown a real winners mentality in this tournament so far, they will continue this at the weekend booking their spot in the quarters and ending the hopes of Connaught at the same time. The Irish province have struggled against strong opposition in recent weeks and it doesn’t get any easier this weekend. Toulouse to go from minute 1-80 I think we will see a full performance from them this weekend to really post their marker to be one of the favourites in this years tournament
Toulouse -6 handicap 10/11 most major bookies – (WON)
Racing92 vs Munster 12/1/20 3:15 ko
Racing are the only side that could compare to Exeter form wise at the moment. An impressive win against Clermont in the top 14 last weekend stands them in good stead. Munster though have lost their last 2 against Leinster and Ulster, both worth opponents, but they would have hoped to have at least one win from them under their belt. With Russell pulling the strings at 10 releasing this exciting backline, they could enjoy a good day and progress into the quarters from their stunning indoor stadium.
Racing -9 handicap 10/11most major bookies – (WON)
play the trebles and Acca for another good winning weekend on the rugby
