Harlequins will be pleased with their opening efforts last weekend as they claimed an away win.

That success was at Newcastle Falcons and they look in good shape to follow up with another victory on the weekend.

Worcester Warriors also started positively as they posted a good home win over London Irish.

Harlequins Preview – Home win likely for Quins

The reigning Premiership champions Harlequins solidly opened their title defence last weekend.

They had a tricky match up north against Newcastle and they left Kingston Park with a 26-20 success.

It’s a four-match winning streak of form that they are in the Premiership.

Quins scored at least 40 points in three of those four wins.

In the match outright for rugby betting Harlequins are 1/10 odds-on favourites for the win* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on September 23rd, 2021).

The last time that Harlequins won five straight league matches was in March 2019.

Focusing on their home form, Harlequins have put together an eight-match winning streak in the Premiership.

So they have turned Twickenham Stoop into a fortress and Saturday’s visitors Worcester don’t look likely to break it down.

With the home win looking likely, it could all be down to the winning margin.

Our betting prediction:
Quins 11-20 winning margin

In the overall head to head, Harlequins are W19 L9 against Worcester.

A Harlequins -17 handicap is at a quote of 10/11 in rugby betting* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on September 23rd, 2021).

Quins were the top-scoring team in the Premiership last season.

They tallied over 700 points across the course of the campaign.

In last season’s home success over Worcester, Harlequins posted a 50-26 victory in April.

They have scored at least 47 points in two of their last three home games against Worcester.


Worcester Warriors Preview – Can Warriors claim rare away win?

Worcester Warriors claimed a victory against London Irish last weekend at Sixways.

In that 36-24 win over the Exiles last weekend, Worcester produced their best point tally in a Premiership game since September 2020.

They scored five tries in the match, a joint high tally of all teams on the opening weekend.

That is the only match that they have won since the opening round of action of last season’s campaign (London Irish).

So that snapped a run of 18 Premiership losses (not including declared results for cancelled fixtures).

But there is the not so small matter of their away form.

Since the start of the 2000 calendar year, Worcester Warriors have lost all but one of 18 away matches in the Premiership (W1).

Worcester Warriors last won their first two matches of a new season in 2012/13.

The last time they earned back to back league wins was in November last year.

Surprisingly though, the Warriors have won three of their last five matches against Harlequins.

The Worcester +17 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 21:42 GMT on September 23rd, 2021).

There was that positive for them last weekend, but this is a different kettle of fish.

Even though the Warriors have won two of their last three league trips to The Stoop, they look as if they are going to be up against it on Saturday.
