London Irish Preview – Can Irish get a win?

It has been a D1 L3 record that London Irish have recorded this season in Premiership rugby.

They have remained competitive, even in not getting a win.

Defeats against Worcester, Northampton and Leicester have come their way, along with a gritty draw against Sale.

Their 36-24 loss at Worcester on the opening weekend of the new season, has been their biggest margin of defeat.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting, the win for London Irish is at a quote of 8/11* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

Can they find a way to win?

The last time that London Irish recorded a league win was against Bath at the end of March.

London Irish are currently winless in their last five home matches in Brentford.

But they have taken two try bonus points and three losing bonus points in that sequence.

So they have been getting close, but the wins are eluding them.

Our betting prediction:
Gloucester 1-7 winning margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021)


London Irish have won two of their last three Premiership matches against Gloucester, losing the most recent one in 2021.

Going back to narrow margins, that has been a feature of meetings between these two in London Irish’s home games.

All but one of London Irish’s last six home games against Gloucester have been settled by no more than six points.

A London Irish -1 handicap here is at a quote of 10/11 for Premiership Rugby betting as they are the outright favourites* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

It’s a ten-match winless streak in the Premiership that they are and they have conceded at least 20 points in their last twelve.


Gloucester Preview – Visitors may sneak the points

Gloucester will likely be kicking themselves if they leave Brentford on Sunday without a win in the bag.

As underdogs, they are at a quote of 11/10 in the match outright* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

Gloucester had a difficult season in the previous campaign and they lost their first two matches of this one.

Those were defeats against Northampton and Leicester.

But they have been responded with wins over Worcester and then last weekend against Sale Sharks.

The Cherry & Whites pipped the Sharks by a single point margin at Kingsholm last weekend.

That is three wins by Gloucester in their last five league matches.

In that sequence, they have scored at least 20 points in each of the matches.

Can they add to their win at Worcester?

Gloucester have not won back to back away matches in the Premiership since April 2019.

Each of the last four meetings between these two sides have resulted in a home win as well.

So the trends are lending support to Gloucester being underdogs.

The last time that Gloucester won three straight league matches was in March 2019 (Home and Away).

There have been some positives for Gloucester, as they are making decent ground and their goal kicking game is on point.

A Gloucester 1-7 winning margin for rugby betting at 11/4 isn’t an unrealistic way to go* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).


London Irish vs Gloucester Betting Advice

Gloucester should have a little bit of confidence and self-belief behind them to go and get the win.

At the 11/10 quote, they have a little more appeal than London Irish do in the match outright* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

The Cherry & Whites scrapped well to get their win last weekend over Sale.


Key Facts – London Irish vs Gloucester Betting Tip

  • London Irish have conceded at least 20 points in each of their last twelve league games
  • London Irish are winless in 10 Premiership matches
  • Gloucester have won their last two fixtures


The head to head form does lean towards the home win, but the Exiles can’t seem to get across that winning line.

It’s 10 in the league for them without one, despite sticking close to opponents in matches.

Their defence may just let them down at the end of the day, having conceded 20+ points in each of their last dozen.
