can we make a rule that people shouldn't mention amounts of money unless they are willing to post a screenshot of the bet or docket?

I don't really mind, if people want to mention figures then that's their prerogative. I'm only really interested in percentage returns.

The best way IMO this can work is posting your list of bets before the first match you've a stake on, that prevents any accusation of after-timing or selective screenshots. Of course sometimes this isn't possible before matches.

If people want to claim they're betting more than they are that's their business.

I'm gonna give this 50 unit lark a go this season.

Looking forward to a good old unit-off this season. Just need the bloody season to start first.

My betting pot is in fact quite small. I'm using it as a round figure & easy to calculate % terms, I don't do units or online stuff. Looking for a 100%+ gain.

Well then do the units system and show us you can do it

Looks a good bet, but hard to know how Edinburgh are going to play under Solomons, although I'd imagine Visser would be important to the gameplan. If you are looking for value I'd be inclined to back Eli Walker each way at 20/1, the ospreys are nearly guaranteed to score tries and as he's not likely to be a wales starter he should play a good amount of games.

Some good value also in choosing the top Connacht tryscorer, Fionn Carr is favourite at 6/4 but its difficult to know whether he'll be guaranteed a starting spot over O'halloran and Poolman, Poolman was top tryscorer last year but is only fourth in the betting, IMO he's a definite starter

Not sure I'll go for much this weekend given there's no form to speak of, but provisionally speaking I'd favour Montpellier over Toulon. Toulon will be missing quite a few players. I'm not sure how Montpellier's squad is shaping up atm.

A table is easy enough to do if people use the 50 units system. Although perhaps if people aren't doing so well they won't want it overly advertised!

Montpellier at 14/1 each way for Top 14 is a nice bet. Reckon they'll be much improved this year again.
