On the tipping/betting side, I must concede this one should be for Russia in spite of its issues in Winter. They beat Namibia by a larger margin than Spain and although we've got a monster pack, backs won't have a clue about what to do in attack or how to defend Russian fast breaks. Alvar Gimeno saved us quite a few times back in November and he's now injured. The only way this could become a home victory is if Russia makes too many errors on its own half, leading to good lineouts and mauls.

FER staff seems to have prioritised thirst for some sort of revenge against Romania and Belgium by not calling top players until these games over what would have been the most clever approach to this tournament and I'm not particularly glad about this. They keep saying we must turn the page but then their actions say otherwise.

Agreed Russia should be favorites. They’ve picked basically their strongest side.

I am going with the Bear, very strong team. Lyn Jones is moulding a good team here. I don't understand Spain's logic. their actions contradict the comments and it seems to me they are still stuck on last year's events.

Spain are my favs in winning this year REC. I hope not, of course :), but traditionally the team with the best pack in the competition won the REC.

Bogdan, you shouldn't drink so early in the weekend. Even if we managed to pull an upset on Sunday, we're going to send a 95% national-based squad to Tbilisi.

My prediction is based on squads from this week. If you plan to lineup Heineken selections you will win... nothing.

I'm at the stadium and couldn't see it, but congrats to Rugby Europe for the lack of TMO one more year. Idiots.

And now in counterattack a player is held without the ball and nobody sees it. Ridiculous.

Our defense is horrible. A couple of phases are enough to dismantle it.

I'm fine with her, not with assistant. Anyway, lack of TMO is ridiculous. Especially after seeing rudimentary one in ARC.

I believe it's slightly better than that, there's people on the side of TV camera as well.

Calling out this for the bullshit that it is. This is bullshit.

Yeah, that shouldn't have been a try, but there you go.
