The Anglo-Welsh Cup always sits uneasily in the season. It doesn’t help that the Aviva Premiership and Pro14 can’t agree what weekends it will be held on and so the English sides start before the Welsh sides. Whilst it’s billed as a top level competition it’s really a development one where you will see the stars of the future taking their first senior steps and players who need game time.
Here is my video with my Anglo-Welsh Cup 2017-2018 Round 1 Predictions:
In brief here are my round 1 predictions:
|Worcester Warriors v Sale Sharks||Sale by 7|
|Exeter Chiefs v Northampton Saints||Exeter Chiefs by 7|
|London Irish v Bath||London Irish by 3|
|Leicester Tigers v Gloucester||Leicester Tigers by 5|
|Wasps v Newcastle Falcons||Newcastle Falcons by 3|
|Saracens v Harlequins||Saracens by 5|
