THE PREDICTION

The Netherlands have lost both of their Rugby Europe Championship 2021 matches so far but the nature of their 28-61 defeat at home to Portugal last Saturday is far more concerning than a 48-15 loss at a superior Georgia last month. They face a chance at redemption here against the only other side yet to win a match as Spain come to visit topping their hosts by just two losing bonus points after three defeats themselves. Spain’s losses have therefore been much closer affairs with their bonus points taken in 6-point margins of defeats to both Georgia and Romania and they look to be slight favourites against newly-promoted Netherlands. Take Spain to claim a first win here or, failing that, for this match to see over 40 points.
