Both Harlequins and Northampton were running along in some great recent league form.

But they also both crashed to somewhat shock defeats in last weekend’s round of Premiership action.

So this is an opportunity for one of them to immediately bounce back to winning ways.

It’s Harlequins with the home advantage in the fixture and they are running as the odds-on favourites to pick up the victory.

Harlequins Preview – Will Quins get back to winning ways

There was a defeat for Harlequins last weekend as they suffered a narrow loss at Kingston Park against Newcastle Falcons.

That snapped a very good run of winning form them, leaving them W4 L1 in their last five.

So they have some fine home form going for them at the moment, having won their last three home Premiership games.

It is a quote of 1/4 odds-on for the Harlequins victory on Saturday from The Stoop* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

The last time that they were beaten on home turf in the league, was against Bristol back on Boxing Day.

It has been back to back wins as well that they have taken against Northampton, so they have that running for them.

The last time that they managed to pull off a season-double against the Saints however was back in 2012/13.

Quins are making six changes to last weekend’s starting fifteen.

In this campaign on home soil this season, it has been a W2 D1 L2 record that the Londoners have taken at the Twickenham Stoop.

Our betting prediction:
Harlequins 1-7 Winning Margin

Bet at Coral

(odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March)


Harlequins have scored at least 19 points in four of their five home fixtures in this campaign.

A Harlequins -10 handicap is at 10/11 for this fixture in rugby betting* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

In the last five meetings between Harlequins and Northampton at The Stoop, Quins have picked up a W4 L1 record.

There was a 30-17 victory for them in last season’s corresponding fixture.


Northampton Saints Preview – Can the Saints prevail at The Stoop?

The recent form of Northampton Saints has gone exactly the same way as that of Quins.

They had a four-match winning streak snapped in a one-point margin defeat at home against bath.

Northampton are now W6 L5 accounting for cancelled fixture adjustments.

They have had three matches cancelled this season and from their eight played, the Saints are W4 L4.

Northampton are carrying some great away form having won their last three in a row on the road in Premiership rugby.

The last time that they managed to collect four straight league away wins was back in 2014.

In the match outright there is a quote of 14/5 on the success for Northampton* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).

On their league travels for this season, Northampton are W3 L2.

But they can take a lot of heart from their last away results which was a victory over reigning champions Exeter at Sandy Park.

This should be one of the best games of the Premiership weekend as two teams who are both W4 L1 in their last five go head to head.

The Quins have home advantage here and they have won their last three at home.

That’s just enough to let us edge the win towards them, but we have to have play at the Saints +10 handicap here as we think it’s a tight game* (odds taken 08:41 GMT Friday, 5th March).
