MONTPELLIER, FRANCE – Here we are at the end of Heineken Cup pool play and sill there is much to be decided. Will Munster get the needed bonus and if so, will Leinster be done in? Can Toulon remain undefeated against a formidable host in Montpellier? Will Leicester hold off Toulouse? Can Zebre win??? These questions and more will be answered soon enough but in the meantime. our stellar Expert Panel must think with their heads and not their hearts to bring you this week’s Heineken Cup Picks.
Who will be the big winners?
Just to review, the Panel is comprised of West Ghana’s Rugby Rain Man Junoir Blaber, Ireland’s quick-witted fly-half (that’s redundant) Kevin Fegan, the infamous Ireland National, Declan Yeats, feisty French #8 Pyk O’Kallapfer and contrived Kiwi Johnathan Wicklow Barberie. This Fab Five picks the winners of each match and a Pick Of The Week, for which they must also provide the margin of victory. A quick glance shows the Rugby Rain Man in front with his 50-9-1 record while the nimble Fegan is perfect with Pick Of The Week picks…
Oh, and Yeats is always in the sh!t when he picks.
Here are the picks:
There you go. Bet your kid’s college fund on these – just don’t blame us if they don’t pan out!
