Guinness Premiership predictions

Here are my predictions for this weekend’s Guinness Premiership action.

I’m backing Sale to end Newcastle’s resurgence; Bath to win the west country derby; the home teams to win the two ‘London’ derbies and Worcester to triumph in the midlands derby.

The game of the round is Leicester against Gloucester, with both teams coming into the game on the back of outstanding displays last weekend. You can expect some fireworks, and I’ve predicted another Home win for the Tigers.

Game 91: Sale Sharks v Newcastle Falcons: Sale Sharks by 9
Game 92: Bath Rugby v Bristol Rugby: Bath Rugby by 20
Game 93: Leicester Tigers v Gloucester Rugby: Leicester Tigers by 5
Game 94: Harlequins v Saracens: Harlequins by 8
Game 95: Worcester Warriors v Northampton Saints: Worcester Warriors by 5
Game 96: London Wasps v London Irish: London Wasps by 6

Let me know what you think…

  1. There’s one you know I’ll disagree with Hutch…

    I reckon Saints after playing better than Wasps and losing at Adams Park, then losing to Falcons at home will take everything they’ve got to Sixways…
    Well…that’s what I hope anyway.

    Myler not been on the best form of late and with his boots on we ‘d have won both those matches. He’s on the bench tomorrow with Everitt taking over duties.

    True, the rest should come in!

  2. I think Saints may just edge Worcester, who had a big win last weekend contrary to Saints’ loss, which will possibly have a come-down effect on the Warriors, and an inspiring kick up the arse to Saints.

    I also see Irish as in with a good chance of turning over the Wasps.

    Bring on the Leicester-Gloucester game. Should be a cracker.

  3. I think you’re there, looking forward to the Tigers game, I think we’ll win (Tigers) however it’s going to be a tough battle with Gloucester on top form.

  4. I’d like to share my disappointment that there is no Premiership rugby on tv/sky on Saturday – most notably meaning those not at the game are unable to watch Leicester-Gloucester. Appalling.

    But at least Sale-Newcastle’s on on Sunday. That promises to be a brutal encounter with end-to-end attacking, flowing rugby filled with glitz and glamour. Or not….

  5. Agreed. A great shame that there were no live pics of what was a good saturday of rugby.

    Was really looking forward to sitiing down and watching Sale-Newcastle, and its lived up to the hype.

    At least they chose the best game to show…
