The Premiership Rugby Cup.
Semi Final weekend and we have two very interesting ﬁxtures. Normally a competition to play the academies in, but once you get the sniff of a trophy teams start to take things more seriously and the big guns start coming out
At this point with 4 teams left I would be siding with Northampton. A home semi ﬁnal against a struggling Newcastle should be a comfortable win, and if Saracens come away from Worcester with victory it means a home ﬁnal for the Saints. Boyd is starting to get his side to really click now at the right time of the season Northampton Saints to lift the trophy at 5/2 with Bet365 who are the only bookmaker that seems to have priced this up. – Northampton have now been shortened into 2/1 with Bet365
This Weekends Games.
Friday: Worcester vs Saracens 7.45pm Kick Off
I really fancied Worcester to cause an upset, until I saw the teams named. Why the Warriors are not going at this all guns blazing is beyond me. It’s a real opportunity for some silverware and they have not picked the right team to go and get it. With Saracens missing so many internationals they are there to be beaten, but even with all of them out, they will have enough to beat this team.
Saracens WIN – Available at a 10/11 giving a 6 point handicap.
Saturday: Northampton vs Newcastle 12.15 Kick Off
On Saturday lunchtime, there can only be one winner. The Falcons struggling in the league will be no match even for an understrength Saints. The youngsters for this Northampton side are just as good as the 1st 15 at the moment, so whoever Chris Boyd chooses he will be very conﬁdent of getting the job done.
Northampton WIN – Available at 10/11 giving a 8 point handicap.
Good luck all
