I managed 5 out of 6 correct picks in Round 2, with only Bath’s win over Exeter eluding me, as it did for 90% of people on Superbru.
Here are my predictions for Round 2 of the Gallagher Premiership.
Bristol v Sale
The Sharks had a big win away at London Irish last weekend, but I’d expect the Bears to take this one at Ashton Gate, given their encouraging start to the season. Bristol by 9
Northampton v Harlequins
Quins have not won at Franklin’s Gardens since 2012, and with the Saints at the top of the table, a home win seems the most likely outcome. Northampton by 6
Leicester v Gloucester
It has been a tough start for the Tigers so far, and although the home team usually wins this fixture, I fancy Gloucester to nick this one. Gloucester by 4
Saracens v London Irish
Sarries are struggling with absences through international duty as well as injury, but they should still win this comfortably. Saracens by 23
Wasps v Bath
Wasps are without a win so far, and Bath will take some confidence from that victory over Exeter, and thy might just nick it. Bath by 4
Worcester v Exeter
The Warriors can be tough to beat at home, but as with Saracens last week, I’m not ready to start picking against the Chiefs. Exeter by 13
