We begin this weekends round of matches with a trip to the Rec and Salford. We will only play in one of the matches as there are still plenty of attractive bets available throughout the weekend. We have unfortunately lost one match again this weekend due to Covid, which is a shame as an East Midlands derby is always a season highlight. We leave the match between Sale and Worcester alone tonight. They are two highly unpredictable sides at the moment, you are never sure what to expect on the pitch. The other is a lot easier

Bath vs Wasps 8/1/21 19:45 ko

I am beginning to get frustrated with Bath. You read down their team sheet every week and it promises so much. They have everything you want from a club team, scattered with power pace and stars. But they are just unable to put in 80 minute performances. Just look at last week, they dominated the match against Leicester through the first half, but just a few silly errors allowed Tigers to hang onto them. The second half they just didn’t come out for, they sat back and didn’t know how to deal with the powerful forward runners and allowed Ford to dictate where the match was played, His second half performance, was a master class in how to control a match. Their bench is also proving a problem as they are bringing nothing to the last 20-30 minutes of a match, which is the complete opposite to this Wasps side. Their bench brings control, and a real high intensity which is really killing tiring sides. I expect this to be a fairly close encounter for the first 40, and there should be plenty of points scored as both sides enjoy the running game, but at the same time if their forward packs are given a try scoring sniff they are very efficient. But the energy the Wasps Bench are able to add will be the deciding factor and allow them to close out the win
