Good morning! I’m afraid I need your help for this week’s Best of the Weekend column – Joe Large is still away, I forgot to line someone else up, and I haven’t watched any Rugby.
Naturally I was glued to the Masters during any spare moments this weekend, but I’m also slightly preoccupied as today is the due date for my third child…wish me luck.
So, how did the weekend go?
I normally check through the Superbru results to give me an idea of performances over the weekend if I haven’t been able to watch the games, and here is the critical information:
Quins’ capitulation at home to London Irish is the standout result here, but then Worcester also won to maintain the daylight between the sides. It looks like we might be set for a slightly more exciting relegation battle than previously expected though.
Saracens pumped Northampton for a third time this season – poor Northampton – whilst Exeter also won very comfortably, and it looks like the top two is fairly well established now. Leicester upset Bath’s big day out at Twickenham to secure the ‘away win’, whilst Wasps lost at Sale yet again.
What were the main talking points from the weekend? Can London Irish survive? Will Newcastle make the Top 4?
