Gloucester were on top of their game last weekend as they returned to action in emphatic style, hammering Worcester.

Will that kick start their season as they try and mount a challenge to reach the top-four?

This is a tough game for them as they meet second-placed Bristol who dug out a narrow win over Saracens last weekend.

Gloucester Preview – Can Cherry & Whites toppled the Bears?

It has not been a great season from Gloucester who have fallen short of their strong previous campaign when they finished in the top four.

They moved themselves on to a W5 L9 record for the season as they smashed Worcester last weekend.

It was a 44-15 win that the Cherry & Whites took on the road in that one.

Will that be the fillip that kick starts things for them over the second half of the campaign.

That victory will have been a huge relief for Gloucester as it leaves them on a W1 L4 in their last five league fixtures.

The Cherry & Whites had lost six games in a row in all competitions before the season was interrupted.

They haven’t been quite on point in attack either this season so that high-tally last weekend will also have been a relief.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-12 Winning Maring

Bet at Coral

(odds taken 00:50 GMT, Thursday 20th August)


When they met Bristol earlier this season, back at the end of January, Gloucester lost 34-16.

That is back to back losses that they have suffered against the Bears.

However, Gloucester have won their last two at Kingsholm against them, the most recent of which was a 35-13 in September 2018.

They are 6/5 odds-against to claim the win in this one* (odds taken 00:50 GMT, Thursday 20th August).

So things have gotten off to a bright start for new head coach Goerge Skivington.

It is a six-match undefeated streak at Kingsholm that Glocuestser are on against the Bears.


Bristol Preview – Testing away game for the Bears

Bristol are sat in second place in the Premiership with a fantastic run of form behind them.

Last weekend they were in action at Ashton Gate against Saracens and the Bears got the four points.

That was a narrow 16-12 victory the Bristol Bears took, which was their sixth win on the bounce.

This is their best ever streak in the Premiership and within that streak, there have been back to back wins.

Those happened against Northampton and Bath.

So to their form against Gloucester. While Bath have won the last four against them in all competitions, all of them have been at Ashton Gate.

Bristol are on a W9 D1 L4 record for the campaign but they have scored at least 10 tries fewer than any of the other current top four.

Bristol have, quite impressively, not conceded more than 15 points in any of their last five league games.

But going back to their scoring only once in that five-match scoring streak, have they managed more than 20 points in a fixture.

Realistically for backers of the away win for Bristol at Kingsholm, a narrow margin of success would be expected.

A Bristol -2 handicap with that in mind, is at 10/11* (odds taken 00:50 GMT, Thursday 20th August).


Gloucester vs Bristol Betting Advice

We are going to back Gloucester to be the ones to end the winning streak of the Bears.

They really looked like a rejuvenated side last weekend, albeit against a relatively poor Worcester team.

But that should have given the Cherry & Whites a big boost of confidence.


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Bristol Betting Tip

  • Gloucester are unbeaten in six at home against the Bears
  • Gloucester have lost their last four in all competitions against the Bears (all away from home)
  • Bristol are on a six-match winning streak in the Premiership


The winning streak of the Bears, of course, has to come to an end at some point.

It is more likely to happen out on the road as well than at Ashton Gate.

We think is going to be a good time for Glocustser to be meeting them, so it’s the home win.
