Well here we are, back again for another week of Down The Laighin predictions. After a successful week 4 for the Down The Laighin team, we are hoping to reproduce the great teamwork and guesswork to lead our fans to another great week. So far we have had mixed results, going 5/6, 5/6, 2/6 and 6/6 in the opening four weekends. With the first true Irish derby of the year between Leinster and Munster, this is where many fans truly believe the season begins for our Boys in Blue.

We’ll take a quick look at each of the matches and give our collective verdict at the end.

Posted by Niall on September 25, 2013

Its week four and if you’ve been following our predictions you’d know that we’ve hit the post for the first two weeks. In week one it was the Ulster men who let us down as we predicted 5 out of 6 games correctly. Unfortunately In week two it was our boys in blue Leinster who stopped us achieving a 6/6 week, when they drew with the Ospreys. In week 3 however we BOMBED!! Every Friday game we had wrong… Leaving us with a sorry 2/6 from week 3 (Well there were some funny results right…?)

So, this is the week, surely! Here’s our predictions for Round 4 :

Saturday Preview : Round 1

Posted by Colm on September 6, 2013

Connacht Crest                    V                 Zebre Cresty

Saturday 7th September, The Sportsground, Kick Off : 5.00pm

Referee: Rhys Thomas (WRU)
Assistant Referees: Hagan-O’Connell, D O’Flynn (both IRFU)
Citing Commissioner: Eddie Walsh (IRFU)

Connacht will look to avoid being Zebre’s first ever scalp in the RaboDirect PRO12 when the two sides meet tomorrow evening. Connacht were only 4 and 5 points better than Zebre in last years meeting and new boss Pat Lam know the Italian side will be tough opponents. Zebre face a turnaround this year with five debuting in their starting fifteen the most noticeable being former All Black scrum-half Brendon Leonard. Although a new look side, the sportsground is difficult place to go to get a victory, expect Zebre to win a game this year, but not this one. DTL verdict : Connacht Win

CONNACHT TEAM TO FACE ZEBRE : 15. Robbie Henshaw, 14. Fionn Carr, 13. Danie Poolman, 12. Eoin Griffin, 11. Matt Healy, 10. Dan Parks, 9. Read more
