I sillily suggested that we might get all the games in the Pro14 played last weekend. I won’t be doing that again for a while. This weekend it’s a chance to catchup on a couple of the games that have been postponed.

Connacht Rugby v Benetton Rugby – Connacht Rugby by 20
This is a fairly simple call to make. Benetton haven’t won a game all season and with their international players still away at the Autumn Nations Cup, I can’t see that changing this weekend. Connacht have been a bit up and down this season. Interestingly their 2 losses have both come against Welsh sides.
This weekend though a comfortable TBP win should see them leapfrog Scarlets into second place in Conference B.
Glasgow Warriors v Dragons – Glasgow Warriors by 10
Glasgow have been really struggling this season but say it quietly, they might have turned a corner. They have had a really tough set of fixtures playing the 3 top Irish provinces in the last 4 games. That run came to an end and meant a win against Cardiff.
This weekend Glasgow come up against another Welsh side. The Dragons so far have only beaten the 2 Italian sides. Even those wins have been by single figures. I can’t see them travelling up to Scotland and coming away with any points.
Record So Far
I’m 30 from 41 or 73%, I was heading in the right direction but only 2 from 4 last weekend has set me back a bit.
