|Powering into the new season...|
I'd like to say I've spent the summer months doing something worthwhile, like trekking through Borneo and helping to set up a Orangutan sanctuary. However that would be a lie. Instead I've spent the off season gallivanting around East Yorkshire and watching Leeds Rhinos get ritually humiliated in the Challenge Cup Final. Oh, and seeing my fantasy football team plummet to the bottom of my office mini-league after the first three weeks...
Well never fear. The brand spanking new Aviva Premiership starts this weekend and I couldn't be more excited.
Picking up where they left off last season, my beloved Leeds Carnegie play Bath at Headingley this Sunday. The fact that Leeds have failed to win one of their pre-season fixtures is not a massive issue. I mean, they played against the might of teams like the Ospreys, Ulster, Agen, Doncaster.... Let's gloss over that.
I'll get back on the prediction horse later this week and tomorrow I will analyse each Aviva Premiership teams' chances for this season in one sentence. I am nothing if not concise.
T minus two days 'til it all kicks off. Happy days.
