Aviva Premiership 2012/2013 Predictions: Round 5

Aviva RugbyMy SuperBru picks have been going fairly well so far, but this weekend has a few tricky picks.

I think Worcester will get their first win of the season against London Irish. I’m always reluctant to pick Irish to win anyway, but they haven’t been great this season, whilst the Warriors have been getting closer and closer to a victory.

London Welsh v Gloucester is the other game I struggled with, and haven’t predicted either of the wins for Welsh so far. Victories over Sale Sharks and Exeter have proved their Premiership credentials after their opening two defeats, but I’m still leaning towards Gloucester for this one, slightly tentatively.

Elsewhere, I’ve gone for home wins at Bath, Leicester, Quins and Saints and I don’t think that is too controversial.

Here are my SuperBru picks for Round 5. Feel free to share your own predictions!

Worcester Warriors v London Irish: Worcester Warriors by 5
Bath v Sale Sharks: Bath by 6
Leicester Tigers v Exeter Chiefs: Leicester Tigers by 8
Harlequins v Saracens: Harlequins by 8
London Welsh v Gloucester Rugby: Gloucester Rugby by 8
Northampton Saints v London Wasps: Northampton Saints by 14

  1. Gone the same way, but not sure after a shaky weekend of picks last week. I think that Wasps will keep the margin tighter, but think that there could be a shedload of points scored in that game.

    1. Obviously what I meant to say was that Wasps would allow a shedload of points without being able to score any! My point didn’t come across well in my initial comment! ;-)

  2. You only got 2 out of 6 right last week.
    How does that qualify as”going fairly well so far”?
    I’m not sure I’d have done much better though!

  3. Sale lost again! A poster on Planet Rugby commented that Sale need a couple more class players – I don’t think so – they need more mongrels in the team that are prepared to scrap for the points.
    The fact that Bath were able to pull away at the end is a damning statement on Sale’s fitness and guts
