I’d stick a 10er across a couple of games that don’t involve Ulster or Ireland. Harmless fun. Plus its a decent barometer for what people are expecting to happen. Sarries to win at 4/1 is simply outrageous value so everyone and their granny must be jumping on the Leinster bandwagon. It’s a bit of h...

Re: Pro 16 (18?) is on

If you play everyone once then there's no need for 2 conferences.

1-2 place into semis

3v6
4v5

Done.

Not the worst suggestion I've heard.


Remember as well though that there is some overlap between league games and Internationals, so its not quite 46 weeks out of the year or whatever.
