Here we go again, Two games of Friday night, one seems a lot more interesting than the other. With runaway leader Exeter posting a weak team for the trip to Franklins Gardens, Saints have picked a very strong side hoping to keep their top 4 hopes alive. It really is last chance for them now so it is a must win. In our other match at Sixways, a very weak Worcester face the full Wrath of Bristol who are well on track for a top four finish and want to keep pressure on Sale for a home semi final

Worcester vs Bristol 4/9/20 18:00 ko

As i said above, this is a tale of two sides, a full strength Bristol who are on a March and looking to try and secure a home semi final berth at the end of the season. Sheedy is turning into a stunning player at 10, with the excitement he has outside of him, they are a superb team to watch at the moment. A 2nd string Worcester who are really picking and choosing the games they believe they can win. As with last weekend we are looking for some value in the try scorer markets as the Handicap betting is a lottery with the team selection as it is. I think i have found some value in both the anytime try scorer market and also the 2 try scorer market

Nathan Hughes anytime try scorer, 11/4 best price with Bet365, Will Hill and Betfair, others shorter – (lost)

Charles Piutau to score 2 or more tries, 12/1 best price with Betfair, others shorter – (lost) 1 Try Scored.

Northampton vs Exeter 4/9/20 19:45 ko

This could be some great Friday night entertainment, Saints are really targeting a win here, after rotating the squad a lot during the opening weeks, this looks a very strong side for them on paper. Exeter on the other hand have targeted games well and done what the needed to since the resumption to almost guarantee top spot, they have the luxury now of resting and rotating players until the semi finals. Looking at selections i would expect Saints to win this well, but you always have to be wary of any Exeter side. As we would only be playing Saints on the Handicap as a single (10/11 at -2 points) there isn’t any real value, even though i think they will take the win comfortably. There is some value again in the anytime try scorer market, mainly on the Saints side. Their centre partnership is looking like its starting to click between Hutchinson and Procter. They created and finished a great try last weekend between them and i can see it happening again tonight, they look fantastic with ball in hand given a bit of space, so it it those two we follow

Matt Procter anytime try scorer, 4//1 best price with Betfair, others shorter – (lost)

Rory Hutchinson anytime try scorer, 13/2 best price with betfair, others shorter – (lost)
