The Rugby Blog Predictions League Update

After four rounds in the Aviva Premiership and Magners League, the cream is beginning to rise to the top of the SportGuru prediction leagues.

Aviva Premiership

We’ve had a new leader every week so far in the Aviva Premiership Megapool, and this week is Stevie J’s turn to take the lead, although Bathbadger and Richaro are sharing the yellow cap for the best performance of the weekend.

Given that London Irish are top of the league, it’s no real surprise to see an Exiles supporter leading the way in our SportGuru league.

Last week’s leader Sparky has slipped back to third, but the whole Top 10 is very close to call, and Grand Slam Points – awarded for correctly predicting every result in a weekend – are far and few between.

Here’s a snapshot of the Top 10 – how are you doing? I’m languishing in 50th with a win percentage of 66.67%.

Aviva Premiership

There are over 100 people in The Rugby Blog now, and if you want to get involved, head to

Magners League

In the Magners League pool, Derek has been leading the way since Round 1, although his lead was pegged back this weekend by strong performances from by deise_prop and Slimjimmie, the new proud owner of the Yellow Cap.

The draw between Connacht and Ulster left most people without points for that fixture, and the whole tournament so far has featured an upset or two each weekend – Treviso’s win over Leinster the most high-profile.

Congratulations to Bathbadger and deise_prop for featuring in the Top 10 in both leagues…very impressive.

Here’s the Top 10 so far:

Magners League
