Its Thursday & Time to Focus on The Weekends Games

So we have another weekends unpredictable matches to look forward too. Teams to be announced today and we can move forward with positives (as long as Exe win).

I must say the WC has made these early matches much harder to call. Combine that with a general improvement in the mid-table clubs and it promises to be an exciting season.

Can one of our Celtic cousins enlighten us on the Pro 14 please. Appart from Glasgow are the other big boys suffering?

Sarries deducted 35 Points

Well apparently the decision has been taken and Sarries are having 35 points deducted. I’m sure they’ll contest this and this could run and run for a while yet. Don’t think it’ll mean they are relegated but effectively drops them from contention of the premiership this year or ERCC next. It’s the guardian but sure its reported in other papers
