Harlequins v Gloucester is really the blockbuster match of this weekend’s penultimate round of Premiership Rugby action.

Reigning champions Quins will confirm a top-four finish with a victory at home against the Cherry & Whites.

Gloucester though need a win to keep their hopes of reaching the top four alive and have to go hard at Twickenham.

Harlequins Preview – Quins to get back on track?

There was a defeat by Harlequins in their last league fixture which in part, kept the race for a top-four finish open.

That was a 1-point margin loss against Northampton Saints.

It left Harlequins still sitting comfortably in third place in the table but not mathematically across the line for a top-four finish.

Before that loss against the Saints, Harlequins had been on a six-match winning streak in the league.

This match on Saturday is not being played at The Stoop, instead, it is at Twickenham.

Harlequins have remained undefeated since their last five league matches played at Twickenham Stadium.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby odds, Harlequins are big 2/5 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 19:31 GMT on May 19th, 2022 at Betfair)

The last taste of defeat that they had at HQ was in 2017 against London Irish, their only defeat there since 2014.

Our betting prediction:
Harlequins 6-10 winning margin

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 19:31 GMT on May 19th, 2022 at Betfair)


Overall, home and away, Harlequins are on a five-match winning streak against Gloucester in Premiership Rugby.

Their last loss against the Cherry & Whites came at The Stoop in 2019.

In their current five-match winning streak against them, Quins have averaged 33 points per game.

Harlequins are currently on a three-match run of Premiership home wins.

They have scored a try bonus point in all but one of their last seven league matches

In only two home matches this season have Quins conceded more than three tries.


Gloucester Preview – Tough fixture for Gloucester

The Cherry & Whites came up with a huge result in their most recent Premiership Rugby match.

They smashed rivals Bath 64-0 at Kingsholm.

The result left them one point behind fourth-placed Northampton Saints with two to play.

So the top-four hopes are still alive for Gloucester, but this is such a tough road game to have at this stage of the season.

The win for Gloucester in the match outright is at a quote of 7/4* (odds recorded 19:31 GMT on May 19th, 2022 at Betfair).

They will go to Twickenham knowing that the door to reaching the top four isn’t closed, as Northampton visit Saracens this weekend.

But can the Cherry & Whites do their part and land the win?

Gloucester have failed to collect a win in any of their last seven matches played at Twickenham Stadium.

So it hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for them at all.

It’s a world away from the condensed, intimate, intense action at home at Kingsholm.

The last two away defeats for Gloucester have been by a margin of no more than two points.

With their current losing streak against Quins too, Gloucester have a lot on their plate.
