Wales v Scotland (2:15pm)
The SIx Nations Rugby Championship continues with cracking game at the Principality Stadium, between Wales and Scotland. The Welsh got off to a disappointing start last weekend, with a 29-7 defeat away to Ireland. It was a tough defeat, but considering they were without players through injury with some 700 caps between them, it wasn’t arguably a surprise, considering they have not won a competitive contest there in at least ten years either.
Scotland beat England 20-17, partly with thanks to Cowan-Dickies sin-bin appearance and penalty try, when 10-17 down. The Murrayfield crowd roared the Scots on and Finn Russell scored the important penalty to take the win. I expect a different Wales this time around, with injured players returning and despite the moral boosting win, I’d be surprised to see the Scots take another victory this weekend
Wales To Win (5/4)
Broomfield Burg – Betfair Hurdle (3:35pm)
The Betfair Hurdle takes place at Newbury on Saturday, with Broomfield Burg fancied to take the win. After a relatively average debut run, Nicky Henderson’s charge has been in strong form, with three wins and two places, including a victory last time out on Boxing Day, in a Class 2 – Novices Hurdle at Kempton Park, easing to a 10 length win, ahead of Black Poppy.
This is quite the open contest, with challengers such as JPR One, Knappers Hill and Soaring Glory among the main dangers, but if Nico De Boinville’s ride can continue the hot streak of form, he can take the spoils in this Grade 3 contest.
Broomfield Burg To Win The Race (5/1)
Burnley v Liverpool (2:00pm)
Burnley host Liverpool at Turf Moor, with the Reds needing to be wary of the Clarets recent form, having held both Manchester United and Arsenal to draws in three unbeaten matches, while 6f 6in striker Wout Weghorst is sure to give Jurgen Klopp’s back line, plenty ot think about.
The Reds themselves are in strong form, unbeaten in eight and winning the last five games on the bounce. The return of African Cup Of Nations absentees in Mo Salah and Sadio Mane will bolster Klopp’s side still further, but despite the odds, this may not be such a clear cut victory as many suggest, thus the straight forward win selection.
Liverpool To WIn (2/7)
Newcastle United v Aston Villa (2:00pm)
Newcastle United take on Aston Villa in what should be an entertaining contest at St James’s Park on Sunday afternoon. The Toon are unbeaten in four league games, with only the debacle against Cambridge United in the FA Cup, the sole defeat in five. The 3-1 win over Leeds United showed Eddie Howe’s side are starting to adjust to his tactics.
Aston Villa of course are also under recent management changes, with Steven Gerrard taking over. They are unbeaten in three, including draws with Man United and Leeds United, as Philippe Coutinho’s influence in the side starts to show. Newcastle are unbeaten in thirteen home matches against Villa and I fancy them to take the spoils in what should be another cracking match between the sides.
