Happy New Year to everyone, it has been a real troubled year for all sport, so let’s hope 2021 brings everyone back together safely, so we can all enjoy sport with others again.
It may be a new year, but the same issues continue to occur, with 2 matches being lost to COVID again this weekend, we still have 4 games to feast on over three days so sit back and enjoy
Bristol vs Newcastle 1/1/21 15:00ko
An interesting match to start the new year, the game may be going ahead but is hardly COVID free, with Bristol missing all of their starting front row and replacement front row from last weeks match. They may have a very sharp looking backline, but with this area of weakness up front Newcastle should be able to starve them of ball in the wide channels and build a score which may see them home for another win. With Toby Flood starting at 10 he should control where the game is played, and take points at every opportunity. Bristol won’t be a walkover as they are still star packed, but the dominance Newcastle should be able to find up front may be enough to see them home
