Newcastle slipped back to second from bottom in the Premiership table after last weekend’s round of action.

A massive defeat away at Exeter stopped their burst of positive form. How will they respond to that heavy loss at Sandy Park?

It’s back to home soil for them on the weekend as they face bottom side Worcester Warriors.

Newcastle Falcons Preview – Can the Falcons deliver the perfect response

There was a day to forget at Sandy Park for Newcastle Falcons last weekend.

They were torn apart in a 74-3 defeat. That was the second-biggest defeat that they have suffered as a club in the Premiership.

But there looks like a reasonable opportunity for them to shake that off this weekend.

The Falcons host bottom side Worcester Warriors at Kingston Park.

In the match outright for Premiership rugby betting the win for Newcastle is at 3/10 odds-on* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021)

The Falcons do have home form as they have won their last two Premiership games there.

Those were successes against London Irish and Northampton.

The last time that Newcastle managed three straight home league wins in the Premiership was in 2018.

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs this season, the first one having been cancelled.

Our betting prediction:
Newcastle 1-12 winning margin

* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021)


The last time that Newcastle and Worcester were together in the Premiership, the Falcons completed the double over the Warriors.

That was in the 2018/19 campaign and it was the first time Newcastle had achieved that.

Newcastle are undefeated at Kingston Park against Worcester since 2016.

These are the two lowest-scoring teams in the Premiership, but Worcester have a far worse defensive record of the two.

A Newcastle -7 handicap can be taken at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).


Worcester Preview – Can Worcester break losing streak?

There was another loss for Worcester last weekend. To their credit, it was only a narrow one.

The Warriors went down 17-18 at Sixways against Leicester.

That is a 10 match losing streak for the Warriors in the league now since being awarded a declared victory over Newcastle in February.

The only match that they have won on the pitch this season was on the opening weekend of the campaign.

But there have been some positives in defeat for them.

Worcester have taken a losing bonus point in three of their last four Premiership fixtures.

In the match outright for Saturday’s game, Worcester are 13/5 underdogs* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

They have not claimed an away win this season on the road.

Actually, the only win that they have earned away from home in the top flight since November 2019 was last season at London Irish.

So there’s little to suggest that they are going to break their losing streak.

But maybe they can keep things close.

A Worcester Warriors +7 handicap is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

Taking a closer look at their margins of defeat on the road in the top flight.

Six of their ten away defeats for the campaign have been by a margin of double figures.

Only in three of their road fixtures have the Warriors managed to reach 20 points on the scoreboard.

Worcester are not actually that bad in attack, they make plenty of line breaks but they just don’t take their chances.


Newcastle Falcons vs Worcester Betting Advice

Newcastle were not at full strength for that forgettable trip to Sandy Park against Exeter.

They are getting back a lot of their star performers for their final home game of the season. They will have home support there which will help.

So we think that they do get the win and the Newcastle -7 handicap is in play as a rugby betting option at 10/11* (odds recorded 18:12 GMT on June 4th, 2021).

  • Newcastle Falcons have won their last two league home games
  • Newcastle Falcons and Worcester meet for the first time this season
