Reds -5.5 v Brumbies (-8.5)
Sharks -7.5 v Lions
Stormers -1.5 v Bulls

Quite start to the punting week with only movement being Brumbies +8.5 now into +4.5 which is around where I had it

The Rainbow Cup SA lines are out though and those have been added in brackets (always quoted on the home team)

Crusaders -8.5 v Chiefs (-9.5)
Reds -5.5 v Brumbies (-8.5 opening into -4.5))
Sharks -7.5 v Lions (-12.5)
Stormers -1.5 v Bulls (-1.5)

At this point I am leaning Reds -4.5 but no rush as don't think line will shift much if at all

So far I am on the following ones:

- Reds X Crusaders for a double (Don’t like handicap - on a final)
- Benetton +1.5
- Munster -6.5

Will look at Toulon H (Toulouse may rotate), Bulls +2.5 (if they go full strength as Stormers will miss players between Cards and injuries). Then Falcons + or on Board and Glasgow +

Thanks Vann. Tryscorers let me down (seems I backed the wrong hooker!). But Tahs delivered beautifully on the "most losses" play and JoC looks well placed indeed. Good job sitting on that Reds play as well. Let's try and put the cherry on the cake by making some money in the finals as well.

Chiefies always watching Coil.

But I’ve hung up my betting boots. Closed the accounts and enjoying a stress free life where I can spend my money on PCR COVID tests for £200 a pop and Vego chocolate from amazon at £4 a bar.

And got married last week too...so let’s just say my life has been turned upside down like the Fresh Prince of bel air.

Good luck gents, will be watching and cheering on the unders later.

UK Armageddon weather...

Strong on Wasps also, with Umaga now back in form.
Wasps keen to avenge their thrashing by Quins earlier in the season.
Think they go close to winning this.
Wasps +9 @ 1.91
