Spontaneous synchronicity: #AvivaPrem

The 2017-2018 Aviva Rugby Union Premiership regular season concluded on Saturday with week 22 fixtures.

Each season, I monitor performances against the previous season’s ranking (at the end of the regular season).

My data for 2017-2018 are:

(Legend: green expected win, blue expected loss, gold unexpected win, red unexpected loss.)

In an act of spontaneous synchronicity, the 2017-2018 season ended with the 2016-2017 rankings in performance. Week 12 had the same synchronicity.

My template for next year’s, 2018-2019 regular season will be:

  • Exeter (-1)
  • Saracens (-1)
  • Wasps (+2)
  • Newcastle (-4)
  • Leicester (+1)
  • Bath (+1)
  • Gloucester (-2)
  • Sale (-2)
  • Northampton (+2)
  • Harlequins (+4)
  • Worcester (=)
  • Bristol (Promoted)
