Guinness Premiership Round 5

The Guinness Premiership is a wonderful thing – two full rounds within four or five days, and then nothing until November.

It plays havoc with your SuperBru predictions, and I was too late for the game last night between Gloucester and Newcastle. It’s annoying, since I would definitely have picked Gloucester by 16 and they won 39-23.

There are four games tonight and one more tomorrow, and then the EDF Energy Cup and Heineken Cup kick into action and steal the limelight for a few weeks.

Saracens visit Newcastle, London Irish play Sale, Leicester host Midlands rivals Northampton and Wasps face Bath in a repeat of one of the best games of last season.

Tomorrow night Harlequins tackle Worcester at Sixways as we put the first instalment of this year’s league season to bed.

I’ll publish my predictions later, but here’s a reminder to do yours if you aren’t already ahead of the game.
