Gloucester have improved to three matches undefeated for their Premiership Rugby campaign and will look to extend that on Saturday.

They return to Kingsholm on the weekend for what should be an intriguing clash against the Newcastle Falcons.

Newcastle have exceeded expectations so far, winning three of their last four. Can they bag some more points?

Gloucester Preview – Cherry & Whites have a chance

It has been a decent return of three matches undefeated by Gloucester in Premiership Rugby.

They looked as if they were going to have some early-season struggles.

The Cherry & Whites opened their campaign with back to back losses.

But it’s been a positive W2 D1 return from them since then.

Last weekend they played out a 25-25 draw at London Irish.

In the match outright for rugby betting, Gloucester are 4/11 odds-on for Saturday* (odds recorded 20:45 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

They have lost only one home game at Kingsholm since the middle of March this year.

That was against Leicester in Round 2 of this season’s action.

Gloucester also have a bit of head to head form against Newcastle in Premiership Rugby.

They have won three of their last four against the Falcons.

Of their 26 Premiership wins over Newcastle, Gloucester have taken 18 of those at home.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-10 winning margin

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 20:45 GMT on October 21st, 2021)


Gloucester have lost three of their last eight home matches against Newcastle, winning five.

In their current overall home form, Gloucester have won all but one of their last five league home games.

But a narrow margin is probably going to be in play again.

8 of Gloucester’s last 10 home matches have been settled by a single-figure margin.

A Gloucester -6 handicap is at a quote of 10/11 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 20:45 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

There is a reasonable chance that they will sneak a home win.


Newcastle Falcons Preview – Can Falcons continue form?

Newcastle were one of the pre-season favourites to suffer relegation from the Premiership this season.

But it has been a reasonably bright start to the new campaign by then.

Newcastle are W3L2 overall in this campaign, despite only the current bottom two of Bristol and Bath scoring fewer points than them.

It has been three wins for Newcastle in their last four league games, the most recent of those came last weekend as they beat Bristol at Kingston Park.

Out on their league travels this season, Newcastle have won at Bath and lost at Saracens.

One thing to take from their form is that their three league wins have come against teams down in the bottom five.

In the match outright Newcastle Falcons are an 11/5 quote to land the success* (odds recorded 20:45 GMT on October 21st, 2021).

But they have claimed one road win since last December, which was this season’s win at Bath.
