Double Header

Today is the first day of the 2010 Rugby Union Premiership. It's now the Aviva Premiership, which isn't as good as fit as 'Guinness' to my mind, but there it is. The start of the year for my team, Wasps, is the double header at Twickenham, two matches, back to back. Wasps will be playing Harlequins, and Saracens will be playing Irish.

I'm not sure if we'll see much of the Sarries game, but will be cheering for Wasps. I've not kept up with all the changes at Wasps this summer - and though I know we won the pre-season friendlies, I've no idea of the current form, let alone that of Quins. It'll all come as a bit of a mystery!

Wasps beat Quins last year, but lost to Irish in 2008. In 2007 Wasps lost to Saracens, having narrowly beat them in 2006. No one side can claim dominance, it could be anybody's game, but it'd be nice to start with a win.
