Exeter Chiefs vs Wasps
Sandy Park
Light Rain Showers, 9 degrees, 10 mph South Westerly Winds


Exeter Chiefs
Manager – StNick

01. Nathan Catt09. Greg Laidlaw
02. Dane Coles10. Alex Lozowski
03. Ben Tameifuna
04. Courtney Lawes11. Noa Nakaitaci
05. James Horwill12. Ma'a Nonu
06. Dave Ewers13. Francis Saili
07. Teimana Harrison14. Chris Ashton
08. Sergio Parisse15. Maxime Medard
.
Subs: 16. Jefferson Poirot, 17. Jack Yeandle, 18. Kyle Sinckler, 19. Kane Douglas, 20. Charles Ollivon, 21. Nic White, 22. Camille Lopez, 23. JP Pietersen

Territorial Kicking: Looking to pin back sides and kick for open spaces or touch.
First phase attack/strike moves: Will look to break the defence, with either a bust through or a clever move to create a gap.

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.
Chop Tackle: Tacklers look to get low and chop down attackers before gaining momentum or metres over the gain line.

We have picked a big pack and are targeting the forward battle as key to the win. We have a solid scrum to build from and two big locks who are both good lineout options.

The set piece will be important and we will look to use this as a weapon to attack from and gain territory. Our back row are all big carriers and we will use them all to gain hard yards and tire out opposition defenders. Ewers, Coles, Sinckler, Parisse, Harrison are all good strong ball carriers and will look to get us front foot ball for Lopez to work with.

In the backs we will use Nonu as a crash ball option and a decoy runner to open up space for the likes of Mermoz, Nakaitaci and Medard to exploit. Laidlaw will kick all pens for goal if in range and if not look to kick deep to gain territory.

Tactics
Attack:
- Good mobility in the back row to get round the park
- Mix up forward runners off 9 and 10 to give go forward and tie in defence. When space opens up, go wide and utilise pace of back three.
Defence:
- Nullify the midfield threat, looking for big hit opportunities and wrap tackles to prevent the offloads
- Good line speed to put pressure on their handling and ability to go round our blitz defence
Breakdown:
- Be disciplined at the breakdown and do not give away penalties in our half
- If ruck is lost, don't compete and fan out in D
Bench:
- Good quality on the bench with a number of options. Slade can open up the attack in the latter stages.

Breakdown - Turnover possession: Your side is recognised to pick off turnovers at the breakdown, by getting the ball and gaining the penalty.

Tactics
We've picked a very young side, scattered with experienced heads and bolstered by the return of Hartley. We have picked a strong front five to provide us with a platform to build attacks and have picked a powerful backline to get us over the gain line. Tigers have a more experienced side, so we have picked our best kicking combination at no9, no10 and no12 to ensure we can put the ball deep into the home sides territory. Our aim is to put emphasis on the collisions and physicality and give our youngsters a chance to impress.

After resting the star players for a couple of weeks in the Champions Cup, Pull names a strong side for the Anglo-Welsh Cup, a competition they are targeting this season.
Wasps
Manager - Pullthestrings

01. Joe Marler09. Maxime Machenaud
02. Bismark Du Plessis10. Aaron Cruden (k)
03. Frans Malherbe
04. Sebastien Vahamahina11. Bryan Habana
05. Alun Wyn-Jones (c)12. Brad Barritt
06. Tom Wood13. Jonathan Davies
07. Sean O'Brien14. Anthony Watson
08. Louis Picamoles15. Rob Kearney
_

Tactics
Attack:
- Good mobility in the back row to get round the park
- Mix up forward runners off 9 and 10 to give go forward and tie in defence. When space opens up, go wide and utilise pace of back three.
Defence:
- Nullify the midfield threat, looking for big hit opportunities and wrap tackles to prevent the offloads
- Good line speed to put pressure on their handling and ability to go round our blitz defence
Breakdown:
- Be disciplined at the breakdown and do not give away penalties in our half
- If ruck is lost, don't compete and fan out in D
Bench:
- Good quality on the bench with a number of options. Slade can open up the attack in the latter stages.

As
Someone who
Almost exclusively uses mobile i often post a team from
Memory and then check back.

Also doing predos hard work as hard to find list of fixtures and then comment( easy for ap as listed on fixtures) not a criticism but it's why I struggle with getting teams in and predicting etc.


If this site was mobile friendly life would be easier.

It can't have been minutes if I updated the thread at 1620, as that would have been the side I picked up from your comment?

Scarlets 24-23 Saracens

Scarlets 19-20 Saracens

Scarlets 24-25 Saracens 

Scarlets 25 - 23 Saracens 
Sarries unlucky as that is Scarlets first team in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, who are in some v good form.

Scarlets 31-32 Saracens

Scarlets 23 - 24 Saracens
Scarlets will push this talented Saracens squad, but you just get that feeling there is enough in the tank to secure victory away from home. 

Scarlets 23 - 22 Saracens
Scarlets got a decent side out with plenty of quality in the pack, think they have enough to hold on for the win against a young but talented Saracens side

Bath Rugby 28 - 25 Gloucester Rugby
Both sides looking strong in the pack and it'll be a very interesting match up with Bath the stronger scrummagers and the Gloucester front row more handy in the loose. Little in the backlines but Bath wings are a big step up, missing front row bench hurts Gloucester.

Bath Rugby 27 - 26 Gloucester Rugby

Bath Rugby 16 - 15 Gloucester Rugby

Bath Rugby 25 - 28 Gloucester Rugby

Expect Gloucester to pick up some big wins during the 6Nations period. 

Bath Rugby 22 - 23 Gloucester Rugby

Bath Rugby 25 - 24 Gloucester Rugby

Bath have a good impact up front, but just see Gloucester having a better hold of the game. Russell's form holds up the Bath back line and makes this an intriguing contest. The bbath bench swings it, with a better impact, in my own opinion.

Bath Rugby 26 - 24 Gloucester Rugby
Bath have a fairly strong pack out, and think they just have enough to match Glos. Russel's form is a big factor, and leads them to a win at home

Sale Sharks 38 - 15 Cardiff Blues
Routine win here, even for a rotated Sale side. They'll take control in the 2nd and put on a decent score against the Welsh side. 

Sale Sharks 28 - 27 Cardiff Blues

Sale Sharks 27 - 26 Cardiff Blues

Sale Sharks 31 - 30 Cardiff Blues 

Sale Sharks 22 - 19 Cardiff Blues

Cardiff have a close to full strength team out, their backrow will cause a lot of issues, but Sale have the home advantage and a very strong midfield combination. 

Sale Sharks 30 - 29 Cardiff Blues

Sale Sharks 32 - 21 Cardiff Blues

The depth of the Sharks squad is quite striking an even against a valiant Blue team, will do damage and what is needed to secure the win.

Sale Sharks 31 - 20 Cardiff Blues
Even a second string Sale side is too strong for a poor looking Cardiff team, can't see them matching the pack in any area other than at 7, and the backs are well off

Worcester Warriors 27 - 22 Harlequins
Good match ups but overall the home side have the edge in the pack and the set-piece. Worcester halfbacks a good step up in quality but like both centre combos. Quins back 3 better but not sure how much ball they'll see. 

Worcester Warriors 23 - 22 Harlequins

Worcester Warriors 23 - 22 Harlequins

Worcester Warriors 24 - 23 Harlequins 

Worcester Warriors 27 - 23 Harlequins

Great balance to the Worcester team and very attack minded backline, Biggar at no10 gets them the big advantage.

Worcester Warriors 26 - 25 Harlequins
The big old Warriors pack will bully their way into good possession and front foot ball for their strong back line. Quins have pace and guile, but just lack a little something extra to take the victory away from Warriors.

Worcester Warriors 29 - 26 Harlequins
Tough game to call. Both gone with decent looking packs, think front 5s even, Worcester stronger at back row and halfback but Quins with a better set of outside backs. Wuss edge it at home

Exeter Chiefs 25 - 26 Wasps
2 very strong sides on show for the Anglo! Front 5 just shades to the home side but Wasps will get back into it in the backrow. Wasps just shade the backs and with Cruden pulling the strings will just shade the win. 

Exeter Chiefs 26 - 27 Wasps 

Exeter Chiefs 23 - 23 Wasps

Cant split the two, both gone for strong lineups with a lot of internationals on display.

Exeter Chiefs 20 - 20 Wasps

Exeter Chiefs 25 - 27 Wasps

Two teams that are taking this competition very seriously with strong selections. Wasps will edge the battle up front, whilst out wide they provide a more balanced threat, in comparison to Chiefs. Exeter look dangerous ball in hand, but lack a little control in the back three.

Exeter Chiefs 24 - 28 Wasps
Great game with both sides putting out their big hitters. Think Wasps slightly stronger in the pack, and this will lead them to the road win

Leicester Tigers 30 - 26 Northampton Saints
Tigers with more first choices and it shows in the pack, especially the backrow which will dominate proceedings. Saints a little raw in the backline and can see the home side gaining a bit of control as the game goes on. 

Leicester Tigers 25 - 24 Northampton Saints

Leicester Tigers 26 - 25 Northampton Saints

Leicester Tigers 21 - 22 Northampton Saints 

Leicester Tigers 25 - 26 Northampton Saints

Leicester Tigers 27 - 24 Northampton Saints

Saints playing plenty of kids, but they'll be up against it with a grizzled Tigers pack taking the field. Tigers have the playmakers in Burns, 36 and Beale to get into the right areas and hold off a very talented Saints backline

Ospreys 19 - 23 Bristol Rugby
Ospreys a good side this year but will come unstuck against a solid Bristol outfit. The 7 contest and centres would be a great sight but fancy Bristol to come good. 

Ospreys 24 - 25 Bristol Rugby

Ospreys 21 - 22 Bristol Rugby

Ospreys 25 - 26 Bristol Rugby 

Ospreys 23 - 22 Bristol Rugby

Ospreys playing very well in real life and home advantage seals the win in this game.

Ospreys 25 - 26 Bristol Rugby

Ospreys 24 - 26 Bristol Rugby

Ospreys have been playing some good rugby as of late, however as have Bristol. There is just too much experience up front and some clear and patient thinking in the Bristol midfield to secure a home win for the Ospreys.

Ospreys 27 - 29 Bristol Rugby
Another really good game. Ospreys have some very good players, but Bristol's pack is able to dominate the tackle area, and the backs are good enough to take advantage for a really good win

Newport Gwent Dragons 15 - 21 Newcastle Falcons
Rotated side from the high flying Falcons that will gradually take the game by the scruff if the neck. Some good youngsters on show and they'll soon get into the game and come away with a solid win.

Newport Gwent Dragons 22 - 23 Newcastle Falcons

Newport Gwent Dragons 24 - 25 Newcastle Falcons

Newport Gwent Dragons 25 - 26 Newcastle Falcons

Newport Gwent Dragons 25 - 28 Newcastle Falcons

Tough game away, but there is a lot of quality in the Newcastle lineup - another team showing real intent to win this competition.

Newport Gwent Dragons 26 - 27 Newcastle Falcons

Newport Gwent Dragons 24 - 31 Newcastle Falcons

As much as the Dragons will put up a fight here, they are missing a few of their better players. Not to say that Falcons will run away with the contest, but they have enough in their stride. Bam for me Evans and Curry could alternate a flank spot during the six nations. Thornton might be a step down for some games. Aso similar as I don't think many would know him as much as others.
