European Rugby is back
European Rugby is back this week, last year I had a small go at this tournament and lost a tiny bit. This year I am having my second go, I have decided to limit myself to just five units over four or five games per weekend.
European Champions Cup
Castres v Exeter
Castres impressed me last week, at one stage they looked like they would be done by twenty or more had a chance to score a try and snatch the game at the death. After watching the replay of the ‘DROPPED’ ball at the death four hundred times, we realised they lost a game they should have lost but nearly won!! I like there come back and feel they will have the better of Exeter at home.
Call: Castres on the board at 13/10 for 0.75 units
Cardiff v Glasgow
Cardiff are priced up about right, minus three, but Dave Rennie cannot be ignored, I am not strong on this game but I believe the right way to go is for the home team. You cannot underestimate the motivation Cardiff got from their massive win last week. I will go with the momentum on this one and have a small play on the home team.
Call: Cardiff -3.5 at 9/10 for just 0.25 units
Edinburgh v Toulon
I don’t like Toulon, something is wrong there, I cannot put my finger on it, but I will go against a team that should be minus, albeit a small play.
Call: Edinburgh -4.5 at 9/10 for 0.5 units
Newcastle v Montpellier
Newcastle cannot be overestimated for their close game v a rubbish Toulon, rather look for the value here with another French team that should do the business. Montpellier get my vote here, another small play but a play nonetheless.
Call: Montpellier -3.5 at 9/10 for 1 unit
European Challenge Cup
Agen v Benetton
Best bet of the weekend by a country mile, I am sorry but I cannot be touching Agen at a plus never mind a minus, Benetton will win this one by over ten!!
Call: Benetton on the board at 13/10 for 2.5 units (Max on Euro Rugby for me)
