Waratahs vs Saints
Waratahs 28 -28 Northampton Saints
Waratahs 25 - 26 Saints
 
Waratahs 28-24 Northampton
Little in the scrum battle and Skelton/Lawes the best locks on show. See Saints getting a line out edge though. Parisse the much better 8 but Tah's have the better flanks on show.  Tah's take the halfbacks, big jump up in quality at 9 with 10's a bit closer. Tah's centre combo stronger but prefer Saints back 3. Tough place to win and Saints not quite enough.
 
Waratahs 30-33 Northampton
Edge to Saints in the front five. Slight edge in backrow. Prefer the Tahs half back combo. Outside backs are close maybe edge to Tahs
 
Waratahs 29 - 34 Northampton Saints
Good contest in the tight with both sides strong on their own ball. Line-out Tahs suffer a bit with TPN at hooker. Both sides are good around the park and will make headway with some big carriers in both sides. Both halfback combos looking to attack and I like the combination SHC and Sop could create. Morgan will be the target in defence for the Tahs and will get some success in this channel. The quality on the Saints bench will change the game late on for Saints and help them swing the result for a big win.

Waratahs 26 - 30 Saints
Great battle on paper. Close in the front row, but Saints have enough. The rest of the pack is a win for Saints, although Hooper will have some success up against a back row with no natural 7. Just favour the Waratahs halfbacks, and not sure if Morgan is ready for this level despite his game against Ireland. Other than that, the Saints backs are far stronger, and the bench quality will see them home more comfortably than the scoreline would suggest
 
Tahs 25-24 Saints
Front row pretty even but 2nd row to Saints with a good combo. Feel the back row battle is going to be close and Tahs could get an edge here. Same with half backs and I think Morgan could be got at by AAC, don't think he's ready just yet. Pretty even back line battle. A very strong bench for Saints will bring them back into it but I think, with the back row and centres on top for Tahs they will hold out for a win.

Bath Rugby vs Wasps
Bath Rugby 25-22 Wasps
 
Bath Rugby 25 - 23 Wasps
Two good solid front fives which will set both sides up nicely with a clean source of possession. The breakdown is hotly contested between both back rows with both sets of back rowers adept on the floor and using their pace to help link the play between backs and forwards. I like the Wasps halfback combo who will attack the fringes and keep the inside defence honest allowing time and space for the likes of Moala and Gilroy. The spine of the Bath back line has a good creative axis, with Leali and Beale, as well as Goode able to mix up the guy standing at ten. There's a little more impact off the Bath bench and they will just sneak this one.
 
Bath 25 - 21 Wasps
Really good forward battle and very even there, Whitelock can make a huge difference for the home side, but Vito adds more for the Wasps pack in comparison to his opposite number. Prefer Russell as the fly half but Bath have some great attacking options and can see them making the most of any chances they create.
 
Bath 26-23 Wasps

Solid front rows, Lee needs game time to be rated. Slightly more for Bath in the 2nd rows and the back row battle is fairly even with neither team getting on top really. Half backs go 1 a piece and the centres go to Bath with a strong combo here. Looking out wide both teams look quite dangerous but I think that Bath will get the better ball. Step up on the Bath bench and they take a win.

Warriors vs Hurricanes
Worcester Warriors 26-31 Hurricanes
Worcester 23 - 25 Hurricanes
 
Worcester 27-31 Hurricanes
Good front row contest and not too much in it. Similar battle in the engine room with set pieces close. Canes better in the backrow bar Savea and this gives Canes a slight pack edge.  Little in the 9's but Barrett a big step up at 10. Canes better centre and shade back 3 by a whisker. A real tough game for prop and Canes win again.
 
Warriors 20-31 Hurricanes
Canes have the front five advantage, Worcester still should look to improve here. Canes have the better all round back row. Backs from Canes a lot more dangerous
 
Worcester Warriors 28 - 33 Hurricanes
Away side wins it with their backrow and stronger halfbacks that will provide the Canes backline with a lot of attacking options and they'll get the win.
 
Worcester Warriors 31 - 36 Hurricanes

Wuss are more settled come the set piece, but their back row will struggle with the pace of the Canes back row who will use their dynamism to stretch the Wuss defence and create overlaps. The Wuss halfbacks will play a good structured game that will help get them in the right places on the paddock. Wuss will struggle in midfield against the on fire Nonu, but their back three is electric. Wuss will make this really hard work for Canes, and with tactics could edge the Canes. But the speed in the key areas is the difference and Canes will pinch a result in a high scoring affair.

Tigers vs Harlequins
Leicester Tigers 26-27 Harlequins
Leicester 23 - 24 Quins
 
Leicester 30-26 Quins
Tigers a touch better in each front row position with Steenkamp not quite cutting it at this level. Quins better locks around the park but will struggle against Tigers line out and own ball. Not much in 8's but Tigers step up on flanks, especially at 7.    Not much in the half backs but Quins better centre combo and a good outfit, similar story in back 3. Tigers better pack against Quins better backs, too much at home for Tigers.
 
Leicester 22-27 Quins
Quins have the front five advantage. Hard to split the backrows. Quins have an edge in the half backs and there outside backs are more dangerous
 
Leicester Tigers 28 - 30 Harlequins
Good contest up front, can see both sides doing well with the tighter exchanges against each other. The breakdown is a good contest between both sides and can't really pick a winner, but can see Tigers pinching a few more with Louw prominent for them. There is a just a little more attacking threat from the Quins with JJ exploiting the Tigers midfield defence. Slade's kicking and Pienaar's guidance give the Quins back line some stability and will secure a tight win.
 
Tigers 23 - 25 Quins
Tough game to predict on, a slight edge to the home teams pack, but i'm not sure about Matfield anymore, still exceptional lineout but the rest of his game isn't what it was. Issue is 10/12 for Tigers. Quins very good backline and it is the difference between the two teams.
 
Tigers 30-31 Quins

Can't see much give in the front rows with the 2nd row battle close but maybe a small advantage for Tigers. Back row I think Tigers look good here and will have enough, not that Quins are weak here mind with Kriel playing well at end of Super 5. Half back battle see more for Quins and the same in the centres with a good pairing.Out wide I can see Quins causing more issues too. Looking at the bench Quins have a scarily strong bench and, with a step up out wide I think they have enough to pull it back and win.

Leicester 24 - 27 Quins
Quins are stronger in the front row for me, but its pretty close as am not a huge Steenkamp fan. Rest of the pack favours Quins, although I think Louw could have some success as not sure how Kriel plays as a 7, but doubt it will be that significant with the quality of the rest of the pack. Advantage Quins at half back, and the rest of the backs are a big win for Quins with the likes of Joseph and Nowell in form. Being on the road keeps this close for Quins, but think they have just enough.

Steve - I'd start Kruis and Romano until PDST is playing regularly again. All of the fly halves are similar quality for me, i'd play whoever is in best form at the time, or possibly favour Myler due to EQ.
