As you can see, the only real debate is in the final fixture of the weekend, can Exeter maintain their new found form at home to Bordeaux, FWIW, I think they probably can.

More importantly, what will the accumulators get you?

If you follow the advice provided by you could get yourself a handsome 673/1 accumulator. However, if you took World Cup winner Greenwood’s more measured advice you would still be in for a chance of an all together delightful 147/1. Its all to play for in the ready money round as they say.
