Winning double last weekend. Unfortunately Exeter didn’t seem to take the game at Saracens seriously at all and might as well have stayed in the west country. Otherwise we would have had a nice treble up as well.
What a two games we have this weekend. Starting Friday night in the Challenge cup final, this could quite easily have been the Champions cup final given the caliber of these two french sides. On Saturday we could be in for a real treat, with arguably the best two European club sides of the last 10 years going head to head at a packed out St. James’s Park.
La Rochelle vs Clermont Auvergne 10/5/19 19:45 KO
This is a game of power vs pace, Clermont have enough power upfront to compete with this big La Rochelle forward pack, and they back line really are unstoppable with ball in hand. They are one side you get really excited about watching every time they take the field. This game should be open a closed quickly with a Clermont Win, they have been in all of these big finals of knockout competitions before and they have so much class in their team.
Clermont -7 handicap (10/11 across the board) – Result WON
Leinster vs Saracens 11/5/19 17:00 KO
This has all the makings of a classic, both sides have the ability to be very exciting with ball in hand, but they do also have the ability to turn it into a bore kicking fest. They both like to play the game in the right areas of the park and i think the first 30 mins will all be about trying to feel each other out for weaknesses and gain field position and territory. Both have game changers and match winners, but i do think that if Sarries get a lead they won’t be pegged back. Their ability to strangle the life out of their opposition before breaking free in the last 20 minutes of games with their explosive bench is the envy of every side across Europe. Sarries win for me in a fairly low scoring affair
Saracens win, best price 10/11 with Will Hill and Bet365 – Result WON
Play the double this weekend and god luck to all
