A new season is here, with all new players, conditions and club rumours to influence your pub predictions. So start your guessing!

We have worked with SuperBru to bring you another season of pitting your wits against other Rugby World readers, proving you’re more than a tad clairvoyant and more than a little familiar with the ins and outs of the Premiership and Pro12.

To give you something to pit your wits against (and laugh at), our team have put their heads together for this opening week and offered some preditions. Here they are by competition.
