The Heineken Cup round four action begins on Friday with Celtic Warriors attempting to do the double over London Wasps. It's been a tournament of stories, and that was summed up last week when we had one after another...Munster, Leinster Lions and Wasps, three of the favourites, all losing.
You could claim that the biggest shock came at Wycombe, where Wasps have been playing so well. The Warriors, being realists, feared Wasps could do some damage but they knew they had the drive, incentive and passion to produce that kind of performance. The Welshmen showed skill, put on a wonderful defensive display, fly-half Ceri Sweeney was excellent and they seized the chance with their try.
Prediction: I sense a backlash at Bridgend from Wasps, for whom Robert Howley returns to the place where it all started for him, but the rumours of a merger with Cardiff clearly fuelled the Warriors' players - they had their livelihoods at the front of their minds - and I think they can do it again, although this is the hardest call of the week.
Northampton Saints will probably win at The Borders. The Saints had too much for the Scots at Franklin's Gardens last week despite blowing a few chances. but it would be great for the tournament if Doddie Weir and co could pull off an upset.
Some viewers have e-mailed in suggesting that The Borders don't deserve to be in the event but I believe their place should not be in question as it provides a vehicle for the development of rugby throughout Europe.
Prediction: Borders will give Northampton a run for their money but I go for an English win.
I expect the Neath/Swansea Ospreys to be much better at home than they were in the south of France against Toulouse, although the champions are starting to get going and have a massive incentive in their pursuit of Edinburgh for leadership of Pool 2.
They put themselves behind the eight ball in losing their first game at Meadowbank and must win in South Wales.
Prediction: Toulouse to do it but it will be a lot closer than last week.
