RUGBY 5 PREVIEW FRIDAY  06 March

M1. Angouleme v Vannes

There is sweet little between these teams in the D2. They're probably too late to assault the teams at the top for promotion but they have both had sound seasons. Angouleme are three points behind Vannes on the log. They also have a game in hand. They might have an edge.

M2. Dragons v Treviso

This match was scheduled for a few weeks back but moved to this Friday night. Dragons got away with a narrow win over the Cheetahs last weekend. Treviso haven't played in a while due to Coronavirus concerns in Italy. Dragons may just sneak a win.

M3. Worcester v Northampton

Northampton have lost four on the spin. Worcester are on an even worse run. Northampton looked like title contenders for a long time but the wheels have come off. This is a late chance to right a few wrongs. 

M4. Biarritz v Nevers

Again, there is little between these teams in the D2 and both are in fair shape. Biarritz would ordinarily be expected to win but Nevers are always tough to write off.

M5. Sale v London Irish

Sale are bankers. They are flying and lie second on the log while Irish are in the second half of the log. Sale have caught much attention this campaign and they ought to be winning matches like this.

RUGBY 5 POOL 1 PREVIEW SATURDAY  07 March

M1. Rebels v Lions

The Rebels surprisingly beat the Highlanders in New Zealand last weekend so they arrive in good shape. The Lions have looked bereft of any ideas, confidence and momentum. They were never really in it against the Waratahs. The Rebels are inconsistent but narrowly picked.

M2. Saracens v Leicester

Saracens have all but given up. Mind you, Leicester have too because they cant get relegated by they have stunk this season. Leicester at least want to show their faces.

M3. Sharks v Jaguares

The Sharks return from their tour in great shape. The long flight home is a concern with the Jaguars being here for a few weeks now. They looked assured in beating the Bulls last weekend. This will provide a different test. The Sharks are certainly up to this. One hopes they can maintain their form until July.

M4. Bulls v Highlanders

Although the Highlanders aren't exactly firing they will arrive against a totally dead Bulls side. They have looked awful so far. The Bulls know the Highlanders have their vulnerabilities but it's a matter of executing those. 

M5. England v Wales

Wales have been great to watch and they will test England at Twickenham. England have seemed to pace themselves well this Six Nations so there could be more to come. But Wales have had an answer for everybody so far. They could pull off a famous win.

RUGBY 5 POOL 2 PREVIEW SATURDAY  07 March

M1. Sharks v Jaguares

The Sharks return from their tour in great shape. The long flight home is a concern with the Jaguars being here for a few weeks now. They looked assured in beating the Bulls last weekend. This will provide a different test. The Sharks are certainly up to this. One hopes they can maintain their form until July.

M2. Exeter v Bath

Exeter are atop the Gallagher Premiership log and despite a loss last weekend, they should have an advantage playing at home. Bath have had a typically solid season. Exeter have far too much to play for.

M3. Wasps v Gloucester

The way the wheels have come off at Gloucester is a huge concern. They have no worries about relegation but they went from contenders to also rans. Wasps have found some form. They are fancied.

M4. Bulls v Highlanders

Although the Highlanders aren't exactly firing they will arrive against a totally dead Bulls side. They have looked awful so far. The Bulls know the Highlanders have their vulnerabilities but it's a matter of executing those. 

M5. England v Wales

Wales have been great to watch and they will test England at Twickenham. England have seemed to pace themselves well this Six Nations so there could be more to come. But Wales have had an answer for everybody so far. They could pull off a famous win.

RUGBY 5 POOL  PREVIEW SUNDAY  08 March

M1. Bristol v Harlequins

Bristol have been brilliant and they are third. With some luck they can life this Premiership trophy. Harlequins need wins and need them bad to make the knockouts. They are bad travellers though. Bristol to continue their form.

M2. Montauban v Perpignan

Perpignan are fancied strongly. They are on top of the D2 and have a fight with Colomiers to gain promotion. Montauban are nowhere near the same quality this season.

M3. Rovigo v Colorno

Rovigo should win and win well. They are flying at the top of the Italian league. Colorno are battling near the bottom.

M4. Viadana v Mogliano

These teams are both mid table and on 25 points. Viadana have found their form after a slow start so that could be enough to take them to victory. They are at home too.

M5. Scotland v France

France will be France. They have been awesome in the Six Nations so far and expect to win. But they dont do things as expected. Scotland have been better than results suggest. Conditions will be a huge factor. Respect Scotland to upset.
