We got fairly well screwed midweek by Sale, going from 14 points clear and chasing a bonus point in comfort to getting stitched by them playing out from behind their own line and getting turned over. So what looked like a good win with 2 mins left on the clock turned into a nightmare. One thing I can take is that every game I covered played out exactly as I said it would.
today we have 5 matches, but as before there is a lot of mixed sides out there. We do have 3 matches though which look on paper as they will be played out truly.
Leicester vs Northampton 13/9/20 14:00ko
two sides who have chosen fairly strong sides. Leicester just trying new combinations, but Saints in need of a performance today, with a European tie next week, they have chosen what looks to be their strongest team, finally. they have mixed sides since the resumption, but today have selected their best side for the 1st time. They will come out on top in this east minds derby, and I would expect it to be comfortable.
Northampton -3 handicap 10/11 skybet, betfair, paddy power. Others offering longer handicap odds – (lost)
London Irish vs Worcester 13/9/20 15:00ko
Irish on paper today look like a side who can compete with any side in the league. This is obviously a game they have targeted and I fully expect them to come out on top against a mixed Warriors team. Creevey in the front row has added another dimension to this Irish pack, and with Phipps and Jackson pulling the strings, this could be very one sided by the end
London Irish -1 handicap 10/11 most major bookies – (lost)
Sale vs Bath 13/9/20 15:00ko
by far the best match of the day. Sale come in at full strength and Bath looks fairly close to it as well. The northerners very very rarely lose at home and I can’t see today being one of those days. They looks like dominating sides from start to finish at the moment, and even a strong Bath team may have the life sucked out of them before Sale unleash this deadly backline. Not a match to miss
Sale -6 handicap 10/11 with betfair and paddy power, most others show the handicap at 8points, so take advantage if you can – (lost)
good luck today and enjoy a good day of sport. Play the doubles and treble today’s to get back on that winning run
