    Rugby Union

    I'm off to my first game of the season on Friday. My team Bath have started well with two good wins against Leicester and Saracen's.

    Hoping for a good game at Franklin Gardens and too continue our run of good form. Anyone else off to any games?

    Re: Rugby Union

    After the last 2 weeks I will be avoiding Tigers matches. Bath have started on good form but Northampton stepped it up a gear at the weekend. Think it will be tight but I suspect a Bath win.

    Suspect I will make it to my usual half a dozen Tigers matches over the season.

    Will after I'm back off holiday... always used to go to Bath ,now I live in Chepstow I watch Dragons games if I find they are on. Their matches seem to crop up at purely random times and days!

    Hope your right as I'm standing in the terraces with my friend who's a season ticket holder. She'll be unbearable if they win and lead me astray in the pubs after!!

    Northampton props are not good but they have strength in the back row. You have the players to negate that. Harry Malinder is a liability at fly half and you have the backs to exploit that. They won well against at Tigers team playing badly at the weekend but I suspect that they will not get such an easy ride on Friday night.

    2 wins from 2 for Glasgow with our new coaching set up and would expect 3 from 3 after this week playing Cardiff Blues but the big test will be the week afterwards, home to Munster which will be a crucial game in determining how our conference begins to shape pre Autumn internationals

    Cockerill has made a good start but to be fair they've played no-one decent yet

    Well FairPlay to Saints, they never gave us any time to get the ball to the backs.
    If they play like that all year they will be right up there!
