Rugby Premier League predictions: Lawro vs Sonny Bill Williams

Rugby I like constituents, because they are unbelievable!!

Rugby Lawro's predictions

Unai Emery was sacked by Arsenal on Friday but the pressure is mounting for some other Premier League managers, and this weekend’s fixtures could be crucial for their futures.

Everton boss Marco Silva takes his side to in-form Leicester while there’s a tough London derby for Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham as they travel to Chelsea.

At the bottom of the table, Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl faces Quique Sanchez Flores’ Watford.

“Three or four managers in the league look like they are one more bad result away from losing their jobs unfortunately,” said BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson.

Lawro is making predictions for all 380 top-flight matches this season, against a variety of guests.

This week he is up against dual-code rugby starSonny Bill Williams,who has just joined Canadian Super League side Toronto Wolfpack.

No surprise that Williams, as a Toronto Wolfpack player, is backing Wolves for a big win this weekend

Williams, who has also been a professional boxer, is a two-time rugby union World Cup winner and is switching codes for the third time.

But despite his versatility in the sporting arena, he admits he is no football expert.

“Football to me means rugby, that’s my knowledge of football,” Williams told BBC Sport.

“But I understand now that football is a religion here and if I say some things that upset some people then please, please forgive me.

“I grew up a Manchester United fan but don’t hold that against me.

“I don’t know too much about soccer but me being a proud Muslim athlete, I know players like Didier Drogba and Liverpool’s Mo Salah.

“I’d love to go to a United game and I’d also love to go and support Salah at one of his games. I don’t really know too much about any of the other teams apart from Everton – Tim Cahill used to play for Everton, my Pacific Island brother.”
