Tactics:

Attributes:

Attacking:
1) Breakdown - Clearing: Ensuring the possession is clean and quick with quick support to the breakdown
2)  Phase Attack: Attacks build momentum until an opportunity arises. 
Defending:
1) Breakdown - Slowing up ball: The defenders can get over the ball to slow it up and prevent the attack from building momentum and allowing your defence to set. 
2) Breakdown - Organised Ruck defence: with guards and body guards set, allowing the rest of the line to set off them.

Tactics 

1) Twin playmakers with Godwin helping out Patchell to keep a playmaker always available
2) look to Spoil Harrison as a weak link in the Worcester line using Cancoriet
3) as Worcester focus on the offloading game usually, look to tackle 2 on 1 in the backs with increased coverage from the pack
4) heavy focus on te breakdown as a whole pack unit
5) Blitz defence led by Godwin

And can I put Wyatt Crockett on the bench - just got back in from a trip and haven't had any time to come on here to change the Argie prop.

Thanks!

Worcester Warriors 31 - 24 Bristol Rugby
Worcester have gone with a very strong pack, close to first choice. I can see them dominating up front, and this will set a platform for a set of talented backs to get a few tries. Bristol compete well but having rotated plenty they'll come up short

Worcester Warriors 30 - 22 Bristol Rugby
Theres a step up in quality in the backrow for Worc and similar on the bench in key areas. Tomkins and Spencer going very well and useful options for Bris. Havilli had a good S15 but would have issues defensively in this league. 

Worcester Warriors 25 - 24 Bristol Rugby

Worcester Warriors 28 - 24 Bristol Rugby
Worcester have a little more about them in the pack and a step up in physicality which will trouble Bristol. Backlines are pretty close, no real advantage so the better platform and home advantage takes it. 

Worcester Warriors 24 - 23 Bristol Rugby

Worcester Warriors 29 - 26 Bristol Rugby
Beastly pack for Warriors in this, combined with home advantage gets them the win. Could be very strong contenders for this competition if they keep putting out sides like that.

Worcester Warriors 28 - 27 Bristol Rugby

Bath Rugby 13 - 24 Leicester Tigers
With the team as it stands, I can't really rate Bath with 5 players needing to be swapped. Leicester a solid LV Cup side and will win comfortably away

Bath Rugby 20 - 30 Leicester Tigers 
Bath yet to update for internationals and will be running on fumes late on with no bench options! Haven't seen much of Chick but Dupont looking very good so far for Tigers. 

Bath Rugby 26 - 25 Leicester Tigers

Bath Rugby 30 - 27 Leicester Tigers
Bath set out a little stronger with Tigers perhaps having the stronger flank options. Similar story in the backs with Bath just a touch strong across the board.

Bath Rugby 32 - 31 Leicester Tigers

Bath Rugby 33 - 30 Leicester Tigers
Two strong sides, having Falateau is huge for Bath and can see them getting a lot of front foot ball. Not sure why Andy Goode keeps playing for them, but that backline is going to score tries. Tigers strong too, Teo'o looking some signing. 

Bath Rugby 25 - 26 Leicester Tigers

Bath Rugby 13 - 12 Leicester Tigers

Sale Sharks 22 - 26 Wasps
Sale gone with a rotated pack, and as such i think this Wasps side can really push them, with both sides missing tactics. Wasps have a strong set of backs, and think they'll take this on the road

Sale Sharks 24 - 25 Wasps

Sale Sharks 21 - 21 Wasps

Sale Sharks 26 - 28 Wasps
Wasps set out strongly for Pulls first game in charge. Bar SOB, who's hard to rate, it's pretty much a Wasps pack as a unit. Almost full strength in the Wasps backs gives them a good away win. 

Sale Sharks 25 - 26 Wasps

Sale Sharks 25 - 28 Wasps
Wasps gone in with more experience and will have a lot of power for the home side to deal with in the pack. New manager wanting to get off to a winning start! 

Sale Sharks 22 - 23 Wasps

Gloucester Rugby 34 - 30 Saracens
Plenty of rotation again, but Glos look to have a bit more bite to their pack, with a big front 5 setting the tone. There will be loose play on both sides with weak halfbacks, but think both will get tries with their backs in a high scoring home win

Gloucester Rugby 19 - 24 Saracens
Glaws edge scrum battle but Sarries can get on top at the breakdown which will be more useful in these conditions.

Gloucester Rugby 23 - 22 Saracens

Gloucester Rugby 28 - 29 Saracens

Gloucester Rugby 25 - 25 Saracens

Gloucester Rugby 26 - 22 Saracens
Quite a big advantage in starting packs for Gloucester, Spurling against Strauss is a bit of a mismatch, mixed with home advantage and two exciting wingers can see a decent win for the home side. 

Gloucester Rugby 24 - 23 Saracens

Gloucester Rugby 23 - 24 Saracens

Harlequins 20 - 23 Exeter Chiefs
Chiefs pack looks a lot stronger to me, with plenty rotated for Quins. Backs closer, but think the stranglehold the Chiefs pack put on the game will let them squeeze home

Harlequins 22 - 23 Exeter Chiefs


Harlequins 25 - 30 Exeter Chiefs
Tight old affair in most areas but Chiefs have more quality in the backrow and have gone with a much more experienced bench in most places. Tui getting good reports from the NRC & Giles ripping up the Pro 12 for Quins. 

Harlequins 19 - 18 Exeter Chiefs

Harlequins 24 - 25 Exeter Chiefs
Exeter looking very solid in the pack and a step up in the backrow. Good backlines from both sides and very little in it, I just think Exeter have the edge to take a narrow win.

Harlequins 33 - 29 Exeter Chiefs
Another strong side, Quins have one of the best academies in the game and look strong contenders for this competition. Much stronger bench from Chiefs though, so brings them back strong towards the end.

Newcastle Falcons 22 - 21 Northampton Saints

Newcastle Falcons 23 - 20 Northampton Saints

Better balance to the Falcons backrow although Saints will see some dangerous turnover ball. Madigan at 10 and a decent midfield give Falcons good go forward though. Aso an option for league games but JOD not there yet for Falcons. For Saints Morgan useful, Mallinder an exciting prospect but not there yet for our league.

Newcastle Falcons 22 - 23 Northampton Saints

Newcastle Falcons 29 - 25 Northampton Saints
Both sides rotating with Falcons just coming in a little stronger in the front 5 and and again in the backrow. Little in the halfbacks but Falcons better in the centres and back 3. Enough to take the win.

Newcastle Falcons 23 - 24 Northampton Saints


Newcastle Falcons 22 - 23 Northampton Saints



Newcastle Falcons 18 - 17 Northampton Saints
