Morning all, and a happy Sunday ahead with one of the oldest rivalries in the Premiership. I am still unsure how our two bets weren’t landed Friday, Newcastle had 2 attempts held up over the line and lost control at the base of the scrum when a pushover was inevitable. We were also right to leave yesterday alone, with Wasps causing a big upset to stuff Exeter and a topsy turvy affair in the West Country saw Sale come away with a hard fought win.
Leicester vs Bath 3/1/21 15:00 ko
This looks to be an old school barnstormer today. Both sides are at near full strength, so much so that Bath are having to move Falatau onto the blindside to make way for Zach Mercer. There are international stars on show all over the park. But it will come down to the class that Bath have and the forward dominance they are able to enforce on other Leicester may be able to compete in this area for a short while but it won’t take long for Bath to gain the upper hand which is when they will release their backline who could rip the All Blacks apart when given the right platform. In Mcconnochie they have a born finisher who for me is a real flyer for the Lions tour next summer if it goes ahead
