With the internationals taking a break this weekend, the focus returns to domestic action and here are my Aviva Premiership predictions.
The most controversial is Newcastle v Exeter, and that’s the only away victory I’m predicting this week. It might have been a rush of blood to the head before clicking Submit on SportGuru, but I can see the Chiefs getting a result up there. Now that their European jaunt has finished, survival in the Premiership is their only goal, and this sort of fixture is the one to win to ensure that survival.
Elsewhere, I’m going for home wins, even in Bath where Northampton could struggle without their internationals.
Let me know what you think.
Newcastle Falcons v Exeter Chiefs: Exeter Chiefs by 5
Bath v Northampton Saints: Bath by 6
Gloucester Rugby v London Irish: Gloucester Rugby by 8
Harlequins v Sale Sharks: Harlequins by 13
Leicester Tigers v London Wasps: Leicester Tigers by 11
Saracens v Leeds Carnegie: Saracens by 28
