There is, mathematically, a way into the top four for either of London Irish or Wasps still this season.

Seeing either one of them do that is quite unlikely at this stage of proceedings.

But this is still set up nicely as a competitive clash in Brentford with just one point separating the two teams in the Premiership Rugby standings.

London Irish Preview – Irish to win the day?

London Irish finished the last round of Premiership action in 7th place after beating Newcastle Falcons.

They were five points adrift of the play off places, having played a game more than some of the others in the hunt.

So that chance has probably passed them by.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting, the win for London Irish is at 8/13* (odds recorded 03:51 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Marathonbet).

The Exiles have won their last three matches in all competitions, scoring at least 52 points in each of those.

They have not had any problems scoring points this season.

London Irish are the leading try scorers in the Premiership this season, close to an average of four per game.

After a big run of one form in the league, it has gone a little sour as of late.

London Irish have lost their last two at home, conceding at 40+ points in each.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 1-5 winning margin

* (odds recorded 04:54 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Marathonbet)


London Irish had won four on the bounce in Brentford before this little slump.

Home and away they had lost three in a row before beating Newcastle last weekend.

So maybe that will give them a boost.

The last time that London Irish took a home win over Wasps was in 2013.

It has been a run of six since then without one. Can they secure one on the weekend?


Wasps Preview – Wasps can challenge

Wasps closed out the last round of league action, six points outside of the top four with three to play.

So it’s a tough ask for them to get there.

In the match tonight for Sunday’s fixture the win for Wasps is at 6/5* (odds recorded 03:51 GMT on April 29th, 2022 at Marathonbet).

Wasps do have reason to be confident.

They have won their last six first team matches in all competitions.

It’s been a three-match winning streak by them on the road in all competitions as well.

They claimed a good win at Gloucester in their last Premiership road victory.

That was after winning only one of their previous six.

So it has been far from the most consistent road form by Wasps in the Premiership.
