As you will have seen with the Tournament bets, i have a few fancies for this years tournament. But the week on week bets may not resemble those initial thoughts, as there are many factors that have to be taken into account. Especially on this first round with so many world cup players receiving rest from their clubs before getting stuck back in. I think i have a few though that are well worth a play

Glasgow vs Sale sharks 16/11/19 13:00ko

Home win, nothing but for me, a Sale side who are still too hit and miss, on the road against a Glasgow side who struggled in the first few games of the season because of the sheer number of players they had away in the Scotland squad. They are up to full strength now and will be ready for the challenge Sale will bring on Saturday afternoon

Glasgow -5 handicap generally 10/11 – WON

Leinster vs Treviso 16/1/19 15:00ko

Pre tournament favorites vs the whipping boys of the group. If Leinster do not put 50 points past the Italians then i will be very surprised. This is the perfect start for the Dubliners and they will want to put a marker down on this first weekend. Expect Fireworks

Leinster -25 Handicap generally 10/11 MAX BET (lost)

Clermont vs Harlequins 16/11/19 17:30ko

French superstars, at their fortress, one very lopsided scoreline. I fear for Harlequins here. With how easy they are leaking points, as shown at Northampton 2 weeks ago, Clermont have the ability to open up defences from anywhere, whether it be first or 30th phase ball. They grind you down and exploit weaknesses. Big French win

Clermont -14 handicap generally 10/11 – WON

Northampton vs Lyon 17/11/19 13:00k

Top of the Premiership vs top of the top 14. Big clash here, but i feel the difference will be the players Saints welcome back this weekend. 5 players from the world cup, and also 2 new recruits from New Zealand who could make a huge impact off the bench in the last 30 minutes. Saints will be targeting this tournament this year and will really fancy going a long way. If they are to do this, they need a good home win Sunday afternoon

Northampton -6 handicap generally 10/11 – WON

Play the 4 Trebles and 1 Four Fold this week for some nice little multiples, and fill your boots with Leinster, they will win as far as you like Saturday afternoon, I’d advise a 2 point single on them.
