Dragons v Munster Rugby – Munster Rugby by 10
Munster are having a cracking start to the season with three wins from three games so far. It’s not been so good for Dragons with a solitary win. With that form it’s away win all the way for me.
Scarlets v Edinburgh – Scarlets by 5
What has happened to Edinburgh? Top of their conference and semi-finalists last season but no wins so far this season! Scarlets haven’t had a great start either but go into this match as favourits.
Cardiff Blues v Ulster Rugby – Ulster Rugby by 5
Cardiff have started well with two wins and only that loss to Munster away. However Ulster have could out of the blocks in great form and after making the Pro 14 Final last season are three wins from three this time around. There are players missing due to international duties but I’m still backing Ulster.
Zebre Rugby Club v Ospreys – Ospreys by 5
Ospreys were really poor last season but since the lockdown have really started to put the right pieces in place. Zebre with their internals missing are there for the taking and it should be a third win for Ospreys.
Glasgow Warriors v Leinster Rugby – Leinster Rugby by 3
Leinster’s only loss all last season was to Saracens in the Champions Cup. Even with players away with Ireland I can’t see that run being ended by a Glasgow side also missing their stars. Glasgow have not been as poor as Edinburgh but they also have not started the season well and things looking a bit worrying up in Scotland.
Connacht Rugby v Benetton Rugby – Postponed
This game has been postponed due to covid and they’ll look at dates to reschedule the game in the new year.
