Aviva Premiership

Occasionally I put some thought into these things, but sometimes I just batter out any old crap safe in the knowledge that nobody reads an amateur sports blog hidden away in the darkest nooks and crannies of WordPress anyway. This one definitely falls into the latter category but it’ll definitely be fun to find out how many of these I get right come the end of the season, so here’s my final standings in the 2014/15 Aviva Premiership based entirely on guesswork and with absolutely no impartiality whatsoever (like I said, no one reads this gibberish) –
1. Saracens (they’ve got 2 first XV’s remember)
2. Leicester (too wizened and gnarly not to sneak a home Semi)
3. Northampton (it all depends on Corbisiero’s knee & how they manage it)
4. Harlequins (it all depends on whether they run Evans into the ground early doors)
5. Bath (even with all that money spent, they’ve got some ropey coaches & an iffy 10)
6. Gloucester (there’s only so much Hook, Afoa & Hibbard can do)
7. Exeter (great in the sun, but have you seen a West Country winter????)
8. London Irish (lovely training ground but with no O’Connor, it’s Tom Homer v the rest)
9. Sale (Cipriani is a personal fave but Steve Diamond is insane)
10. Wasps (they still need better depth on the front row)
11. London Welsh (let’s hope they fill out all the paper work this season)
12. Newcastle Falcons (even with Alesana Tuilagi and a rubber pitch)
