This is a battle down at the wrong end of the Premiership table as far as London Irish and Worcester are concerned.

They are both sitting in the bottom four with little chance of ending the season out of it.

So Sunday’s clash is more of a battle of pride than anything else between the two clubs. Who gets the win?

London Irish Preview – Can Exiles secure a home win?

It has been a very difficult season for London Irish and their form at the moment leaves a lot to be desired.

It is an eight-match losing streak that Irish are on in the Premiership, their last win happening in February against Gloucester.

But ahead of this one, they can take some confidence from having won at the Twickenham Stoop, where they are sharing a ground with Harlequins now.

Earlier this season they beat Harlequin in an away game at the venue.

London Irish are the 21/20 underdogs for this game, which for all intents and purposes, looks as if it is going to be a close, probably low scoring, affair.

The Exiles and opponents Worcester are two of the three lowest-scoring teams in the Premiership this season.

Our betting prediction:
London Irish -6.5 Handicap

Bet at Coral

(odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September)


In midweek, Irish lost 15-38 at home against Harlequins and have now conceded at least 30 points in each of their last three league games.

But Worcester are not a huge attacking threat by any stretch of the imagination, so over in the handicap market, things are interesting.

It’s just an Irish -1 that you are looking at for the line at even money* (odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September).

That’s hardly anything to get excited about compared to the match outright.


Worcester Preview – Can Worcester break their slump?

The Worcester Warriors are on a three-match losing streak in the Premiership at the moment and they have taken some hammerings recently.

In midweek they lost 40-15 on the road at Bath and they have shipped at least 36 points in each of their last three games.

It is a W1 L4 record that the Worcester Warriors have taken in their last five games, which is better than London Irish’s respective record.

The one win for Worcester in that sequence though happened on home turf, a 29-14 win over Harlequins.

It has been just the one away win for Worcester this season, which happened also against Harlequins back in round 4.

London Irish vs Worcester Betting Advice

We would have to side with the home win cropping up in this one and at the 21/20 odds in the match outright, that’s about the best value we see in that regard* (odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September).

It was just that extra ability to get the ball over the try line, coupled with home advantage to some degree, that made us lean towards the Exiles getting the win.
