My Superbru fortunes seem to be alternating each weekend, with a good round followed by a bad one. Round 6 saw a climb of nearly 27,000 places into the top 10% on Superbru, and I managed to beat the Superbru community, which managed an average of 2.95 correct picks

I managed 5 out of 6 in Round 13, correctly picking Gloucester to beat Exeter and Northampton to beat Sale (although not by 50 points!), but I also had Bristol for a home win against Wasps, which ultimately cost me the GSP. By all accounts Wasps played some good rugby, and
