The predchristmas game (See what I did there!)

Its Christmas eeeeeve, babe..... iiiiiiin my house, and a little voice said to me, go write the predictions blog.....

 

Yeah, not quite the Pogues!!!

If you remember back to the last round, it was Adrian from @RugbyEdinburgh who was guesting with the guests still out in front with a healthy 12 point lead over myself in 2nd place, But Shutey's excellent 7 point week has put him just a further 2 points behind me!

So how did he do?

1- Saracens v London Welsh - 78 - 7 - Gap of SEVENTY ONE!!!! - Point to David (Sarries by 66)
2- Gloucester vs Bath - 16 - 39 - Bath by 23 - David again was closest with Bath by 14 3- Saints vs Leicester - 23 - 19 - Saints by 4 - David AGAIN - had Saints by 9!
4- Wasps vs London Irish - 48 - 16 - Wasps by 32 - I get a  point for this one, and also a BONUS POINT for my 32 point prediction, 45 - 13!
5- Quins vs Newcastle – 15 - 7 - Quins by 8 - Adrian gets off the mark with a 12 point gap predicted!
6- Glasgow vs Munster - 21 - 18 - Glasgow by 3 - David gets another point with a 1 point win for Glasgow predicted!
7- Ospreys v Ulster - 31 - 20 - Ospreys by 11 - Adrian was the only one who predicted an Ospreys win, so a point to him!
8- Edinburgh vs Treviso - 48 - 0 - Gap of....erm....48.... - David went for a 25 point win and was closest, and his run continues!!
9- Newport Gwent Dragons v Zebre - 25 - 11 - NGD by 14 - David scores yet again with a 16 point predicted win!
10- Leinster v Connacht - 21 - 11 - Leinster by 10 - Adrian finishes off with a 7 point predicted win and the final point of the week!
So the weekly standings are -
  1. David - 6
