The final match of this season’s Premiership Rugby weekend should be a cracker, at least that is how it looks on paper.

Reigning champions Harlequins play host to Sale Sharks at the Stoop in a big clash.

Some key players are away on international duty for both, throwing further intrigue into the match.

It’s one that Quins need to win to keep up their top-four ambitions.

Harlequins Preview – Can Quins survive a big test?

Harlequins are W8 D1 L4 this season in their Premiership title defence, leaving them in third place in the standings after Round 13.

That is a tight race unfolding at the moment though for a top-four finish.

Quins will be looking for a bounce-back performance on the weekend too.

They suffered a loss at bottom-side Bath in the last round of action in a huge upset.

Harlequins had been on a seven-match winning streak before that upset.

This is an interesting one at the Stoop for them on the weekend, especially with key internationals missing.

Among them are chief playmaker Marcus Smith who is getting a start for England in the Six Nations and winger Joe Marchant.

Forwards Alex Dombrandt and Joe Marler are both on England duty too.

That leaves Harlequins as the even-money underdogs for Sunday* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill).

Quins have been beaten twice at home this season in the Premiership.

Those were against Saracens and London Irish in Round 7 and 9 respectively.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill)


There has been a clear trend running when these two meet in league action.

Each of the last thirteen clashes between Quins and Sale have ended with a win for the home team on the day.

Harlequins have only lost once at home in Premiership Rugby to Sale since 2008.

This does have the look of being a really tight scrap, especially with the internationals causing a bit of disruption.

A Harlequins +2 handicap is at a quote of even money for this one* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill).


Sale Sharks Preview – Will Sharks have enough bite?

While Sale’s Tom Curry has been named the new England captain, his club will miss him on Saturday.

Along with Bevan Rodd and Raffi Quirke who are also with England, among others who are on international duty.

The Sharks can’t turn up at full strength.

But they are the 8/11 odds-on favourites for the victory in the match outright* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill).

This season in the Premiership, Sale are on a W5 D1 L7 record.

They look to be too far away from the top-four to make a run at the play offs this season.

Despite having such a talented squad, things haven’t quite fallen into place for the Sharks.

All five of the league wins that they have recorded have been at home.

The last time that they won away from home was at Bath in May last season.

Given that they don’t have a great record at the Twickenham Stoop either, this is not a cut and dry outcome.

If they ever needed a big boost of confidence, they got it last weekend, however.

Sale Sharks came up with a victory against current league leaders Leicester Tigers.

That made them just the second team to beat the Tigers this season.

But again that was at the AJ Bell. Can Sale put it together on the road?

With them being W1 D1 L9 in their last eleven road fixtures in all competitions, that’s certainly in question.

Only twice in their last seven away fixtures (all tournaments) have Sale put 20+ points on the scoreboard.


Harlequins vs Sale Sharks Betting Advice

This game should only be settled by very narrow margins and it could easily be the highlight fixture of the weekend.

Harlequins are underdogs, but they are well worth a look on home soil, regardless.

They are missing key players, but they aren’t alone in that.

An even money quote on them for the match win looks a reasonable pick* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill).


Key Facts – Harlequins vs Sale Sharks Betting Tip

  • Harlequins have lost only twice at home this season in the Premiership
  • Each of the last 13 meetings have ended in a home win
  • Sale Sharks have lost 7 of their last 8 road games in all tournaments


Sale are not a great away side and haven’t been for a while, and the head-to-head goes against them.

There has not been an away win in any of the last 13 meetings between the two clubs.

A Harlequins 1-7 winning margin at 11/4 can’t be overlooked* (odds recorded 19:32 GMT on February 3rd, 2022 at William Hill).
