I have seen an awful lot of reports talking about how good the game was last night. I couldn’t disagree more. There was a real lack of composure on the ball and even with both sides going down to 14 after two correct red cards, neither side could take advantage of the extra space on the park. Instead they look to keep it tight playing a pick and go game or hit one out runners. There was a lot of class on show out wide and those guys just didn’t seem to get the ball in any space. I found it a really hard watch, so many chances and neither side could convert it into points. Today we have 2 games to cover, with a nice win double and we also target the anytime try scorer market in the first match of the day. In the 3rd match of the day, I would give the verdict to Leicester, but not with enough confidence to put it up as a selection

Harlequins vs Sale 20/2/21 13:00 ko

Sale, still find themselves as a hit and miss side, defeat at home to Bath last weekend showed this, they change the side up again this week, and have picked a really exciting backline to try and combat the threat that Quins offer, picking try scorers throughout the backline. Quins of course look extremely dangerous and have a real chance to continue their run of form, i expect them to take it. They have really impressed me the last few weeks, and look a bit like the side that won the league a few years back, lots of invention, plenty of offloads, some big forward runners and plenty of pace in the wide channels. I expect them to win today in a game with plenty of scores. This is why we add players to the try scorer market, but also add Quins into our treble on the handicap.

Exeter vs Northampton 20/2/21 15:00 ko

Exeter proved me wrong last weekend, but Irish were very poor. It was an efficient performance without ever looking great. Saints could have probably done without the enforced rest week, and they are one of the sides most affected by Covid issues. They have looked a different side this side of Christmas after not quite clicking before it, and this shows with their steady rise up the table, now into 5th they will be targeting the sides above them rather than worrying about the teams below them. The bookies have given us a real chance today on the handicap, as Saints will be travelling to the south west with nothing else but 4 points in their heads, given the players away, they have a real chance of this

Northampton +12 points handicap, 10/11 with skybet, all other bookies offering 11 points on the handicap – WON
