Some very tricky matches to call this weekend – here are my predictions for Round 15 of the Aviva Premiership.
Gloucester v Saracens
Saracens have drawn and lost their last two matches in the Premiership, a long enough winless streak for them to buck up their ideas at Kingsholm. Saracens by 6.
Leicester v Bristol
The Bristol revival came unstuck in last week’s thumping at home to Harlequins, so it’s a stretch to see them winning this. Leicester by 13.
Bath v Harlequins
Quins’ away form is poor, but they might sense an opportunity here with Bath showing some unconvincing form of late. Quins by 2.
Worcester v Exeter
Worcester has pulled clear of Bristol again after beating the Champions last weekend. I fancy them to beat last year’s runners-up too. Worcester by 4.
Sale v Wasps
The Wasps backline is looking tasty, even with Willie Le Roux on the bench as he makes his first appearance in the Wasps squad. They should beat their hosts. Wasps by 13.
Newcastle v Northampton
The Falcons won at Franklin’s Gardens earlier in the season, and they can back this up and ‘do the double’ over the struggling Saints. Newcastle by 4.
