Bristol Rugby 25 - 24 Bath Rugby

Bristol Rugby 25 - 24 Bath Rugby

Bristol Rugby 24 - 24 Bath Rugby

Bristol Rugby 22 - 25 Bath Rugby

Some really good matchups and little in the front 5's although the Bath backrow can get on top with a stronger trio. Halfbacks to Bath by a distance and after that it's mostly the away side.

Bristol Rugby 23 - 22 Bath Rugby
Such an even game. See Bristol edging the set piece with lineout and scrum but huge swing in the game when the bench comes on for Bath. Home advantage just sways it.

Bristol Rugby 22 - 21 Bath Rugby

Bristol Rugby 22 - 25 Bath Rugby

Bath have much more fire power and despite being 50/50 in pack will score more tries.
Front row fairly even, Bath second rows do not work with Kitchener out of form And Beaumont a backrow. Back row a good battle with Fearns simply not at this level. Half backs and back 3 massively to Bath who win.


Bristol Rugby 30 - 28 Bath Rugby
Cracking game with both sides putting out their big hitters. Think Bristol are stronger up front and will dominate territory and the collisions. Bath's backs keep them in it, but Bristol hold on.

Benetton Treviso 30 - 31 Gloucester Rugby

Benetton Treviso 39 - 40 Gloucester Rugby

Benetton Treviso 29 - 30 Gloucester Rugby

Benetton Treviso 12 - 40 Gloucester Rugby

Routine win for Gloucester. Not sure about the balance of the backrow but it'll matter little against the quality of the opposition.

Benetton Treviso 5 - 53 Gloucester Rugby
Some youngsters in the Gloucester pack, but that backline will run riot.

Benetton Treviso 44 - 45 Gloucester Rugby

Benetton Treviso 23 - 24 Gloucester Rugby

Benetton Treviso 32 - 33 Gloucester Rugby



Benetton Treviso 19 - 39 Gloucester Rugby
Glos will spank a poor Treviso on the road, far too much quality on show

Brive 34 - 35 Leicester Tigers

Brive 27 - 28 Leicester Tigers

Brive 17 - 26 Leicester Tigers

Brive are decent at home but Tigers have went in strong and will come away with the win without too much drama. 

Brive 17 - 23 Leicester Tigers
Tough place to go, some form issues with a few in the Tigers pack, but the backline and impact from the bench will get them tries as the game goes on.

Brive 49 - 50 Leicester Tigers

Brive 20 - 21 Leicester Tigers

Brive 30 - 31 Leicester Tigers 

Brive 15 - 22 Leicester Tigers

Leicester travel away and despite picking a mix and match side with a very under powered backrow they have too much for Brive. Leicester have some great experience in their team and get chance to blood some youth off the bench

Brive 23 - 33 Leicester Tigers
Brive good at home, but Leicester gone with a strong line up and will expect them to pull away in the last 20 to win this comfortably

Worcester Warriors 29 - 28 Edinburgh Rugby

Worcester Warriors 26 - 25 Edinburgh Rugby

Worcester Warriors 32 - 23 Edinburgh Rugby

Good contest but Worcester will assert control in the 2nd half and come away with a good win. 

Worcester Warriors 32 - 20 Edinburgh Rugby
Worcester looking very strong in this competition, good mix of power in the pack and some great runners in the backline.

Worcester Warriors 30 - 29 Edinburgh Rugby

Worcester Warriors 20 - 19 Edinburgh Rugby

Worcester Warriors 32 - 31 Edinburgh Rugby

Worcester Warriors 29 - 20 Edinburgh Rugby

Good game and won Worcester with home advantage grow in to and take in second half.
Worcester pick full strength side and have a good blend of carrying, breakdown and set piece. Edinburgh good pack also and the back row battle a treat.
Big difference in backs with Worcester having more strike runners and this wins the game. 


Worcester Warriors 30 - 22 Edinburgh Rugby
Edinburgh a strong side up front, but Wuss have plenty of quality in their pack to handle a strong opposition. Behind the scrum, Wuss far stronger

Grenoble 24 - 25 Exeter Chiefs

Grenoble 31 - 32 Exeter Chiefs

Grenoble 16 - 30 Exeter Chiefs

Another pretty good game until the power of Exeter just becomes too much for the home side. Another routine win.

Grenoble 13 - 30 Exeter Chiefs
Strong Chiefs side, have some strong running backs that will help them win the gain line battle in the middle and some great finishers.

Grenoble 28 - 29 Exeter Chiefs

Grenoble 19 - 20 Exeter Chiefs

Grenoble 31 - 32 Exeter Chiefs

Grenoble 12 - 44 Exeter Chiefs

Total mismatch. Exeter will get the bp early and then empty Bench

Grenoble 17 - 28 Exeter Chiefs
Exeter have some real class in their side, and players like Coles and Lawes are the key to leading them to an easy win on the road
