So here we are after the group stages and knock-out rounds we have reached the final. Here is my prediction.
First here is a link to my round-up of action from last weekend.
How did your semi-final predictions go?
2 from 2, it’s great to get them all right.
Here is my 30 second One Line Prediction for the final.
Harlequins v Montpellier
A lot of the talk has been about how important it is to win this to get into the Champions Cup next year. That’s denigrating to the competition and getting the silverware will be enough incentive for the players.
By the time we get to this stage of the competition both the sides are quality and either could win if it’s their day. As you can see from the voting below it’s very close with the slight advantage with Montpellier. Quins are capable of winning finals and plenty of their side have won the Premiership recently. However I think that the power of the South African reinforced scrum for Montpellier will cause Quins problems. Add into that the final is in Lyon so not the traveling issues that we associate with French team. So with the extra front-foot ball I’m backing the French side to win.
