Sorry for missing a few rounds of predictions for the Premiership, but I'm back now for the run-in. This actually reflects my excitement in the tournament over the course of the season - following it very closely to begin with, then lose interest a little as the Six Nations and
Sorry for the quiet week on the blog, I've been on holiday with my family, switching off from Rugby and everything else for a while. I'm back now for the season run-in and as the Rugby World Cup build-up, with plenty in the pipeline over the coming months. I missed
It was 3 out of 6 for me in Round 7, slightly better than the community average of 2.81, and thanks to a Margin Point in the Bulls' narrow win over the Sharks in Durban, I managed some green arrows on the Superbru rankings. Last week was a reminder that Super
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

Wales beating England in Round 3 was very disappointing, not least because it was my first incorrect pick on Superbru and I lost a few places as a result. The first match this weekend looks like the toughest to call. Here are my Superbru predictions for Round 4 of the
Round 3 was a shocker. You know things aren't going well when the Sunwolves somehow beat the Chiefs away from home, and that only 3 out of the 7 matches were picked by more than 28% of people on Superbru. Somehow there were 18 people out of nearly
It was another week with 5 out of 7 correct picks on Superbru, with the Brumbies thrashing of the Chiefs (picked by 14%) and the Stormers beating the Lions (19%) catching me out. Round 1 had seen 6 away wins out of 7, but it was the reverse in
