European Rugby Challenge Cup 2017-2018 Round 1 Predictions

The lottery cup is about to start! OK that’s perhaps a little harsh on the European Rugby Challenge Cup but from a picking point of view it can feel like that sometimes.

Domestic action can take a priority especially in the Top14 and Aviva Premiership where relegation cane a big financial hit for these clubs. You might want to check out my tournament preview before looking at my round 1 predictions.
