As we enter the second half of the Guinness Premiership season, every team has plenty to play for and as ever, we have a series of fixtures which are incredibly tough to call. Here are my Superbru picks for round 12:
Three away wins and three home wins are predicted for the weekend, the most notable will be Northampton losing their unbeaten home record to Leicester.
Bath will be reeling from their loss to Leicester so will be too strong at home for an improving Wasps.
Similarly, Quins will be frustrated they couldn’t do more to come back against Wasps and will take it out on Worcester at Sixways and emerge victorious.
Sale at home to Irish on a bitterly cold Friday night will be a close affair with Sale just edging it.
Newcastle will put up a stern defensive effort as ever at home but Gloucester will run away with it in the latter stages.
Sarries will have far too much for Bristol at home.
Sale to beat London Irish at home by 4 points
Bath to beat Wasps at home by 6 points
Harlequins to beat Worcester away by 12 points
Leicester to beat Northampton away by 8 points
Gloucester to beat Newcastle away by 12 points
Saracens to beat Bristol at home by 14 points
