We're into the November Tests good and proper this weekend, England's clash with South Africa top of the bill on Saturday.
Ireland's shock win over the All Blacks has reminded us that anything is possible and for that reason we head into a run of nine Tests over the next few days ready for more surprises.
See who we're backing below.
England v South Africa
Prediction: South Africa seem to be lacking in confidence and ideas at the moment and therefore we'll go for England to win by 12.
Wales v Argentina
Prediction: It would be some achievement for Wales to put everything right from last week and that is why we go for Argentina by 5.
Italy v New Zealand
Prediction: Although this is not the world champions’ first-choice run-on side, they should have little trouble against their hosts. New Zealand to win by 18 points.
Scotland v Australia
PredictIon: Last year's World Cup heartbreak is sure to add some extra spice to the game. Australia by 10-15.
Barbarians v Fiji
Prediction: Points shouldn't be in short supply in Belfast, as we expect the invitational side to clinch the win. Barbarians by 15.
France v Samoa
Prediction: France can expect a tough challenge from the islanders who will be keen to get their tour off to a fine start. The hosts will prove too strong, however. France to win by 15 points!
Ireland v Canada
Prediction: Joe Schmidt's changes mean plenty of new caps and exciting tries, but we expect Ireland to still win comfortably. Ireland by 30.
Other November Test predictions:
Georgia v Japan: Georgia by 6
Spain v Tonga: Tonga by 15
Romania v USA: USA by 7
La Rochelle v Toulouse
La Rochelle have been the surprise package in the Top 14 this season – not just getting off to a fast start, leading the table after the first few rounds, but maintaining that burst out of the blocks through the first ten rounds of the season. Rather than Toulon or Racing or Montpellier, it's La Rochelle who sit in second place behind Clermont.
Forward power (and a smart finish from double try scorer Jérémie Maurouard were at the heart of their straightforward win over Pau last weekend and given that Toulouse are without several stars away on international duty, a trip to the Stade Marcel Deflandre on Sunday comes at a tough time. For that reason, we're backing the hosts. La Rochelle by 7.
Other Top 14 predictions:
Pau v Racing 92: Racing by 10
Castres v Brive: Castres by 6
Grenoble v Bordeaux-Bègles: UBB by 8
Montpellier v Lyon: Montpellier by 5
Bayonne v Clermont: Clermont by 12
Toulon v Stade Français: Toulon by 15
