Northampton Saints vs Newcastle is one match to keep an eye on for the final round of the regular season of Premiership Rugby.

Northampton Saints are fighting for a top-four finish and will guarantee that with a victory.

If they slip up then there is Gloucester waiting to pounce right behind them. The pressure is all on the home side in this one.

Northampton Saints Preview – Saints to do their job?

Northampton Saints go into the final round of Premiership Rugby action in fourth place in the table.

They are only two points ahead of Gloucester in the race for that top-four finish.

The Saints, therefore, just need to pick up one final home win to close out the deal.

Northampton Saints can’t finish higher than four, so they would face either Leicester or Saracens in the semi-finals if they get there.

In the match outright Northampton Saints are 1/20 odds-on for the win* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365).

Northampton Saints slipped up in their last league match, suffering a loss in a high scoring match at Saracens.

There has been no issues with Northampton Saints putting points on the board recently.

They have scored 30+ points in each of their last four league matches (W3 L1).

Our betting prediction:
Northampton 11-15 winning margin

* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365)


Northampton Saints have been to the semi-finals nine times before and if they get there, it would be their first since 2019.

The Saints had been on a five-match winning streak in the Premiership before that loss at Saracens.

Their home form at Franklin’s Gardens is hot at the moment.

Northampton Saints are on a four-match winning streak at home in all competitions.

That’s their best run of form at the venue since 2019.

They are looking to complete their first league season double over Newcastle since the 2014/15 season.


Newcastle Falcons Preview – Saints to struggle?

Newcastle Falcons will draw a line under another difficult season in Premiership Rugby.

They are third from bottom in the top flight, three points ahead of bottom side Worcester.

It is a current-match losing streak that they are.

Their last win came against Worcester at the start of April.

That is one of just three wins that they have taken on the road this season in the league.

In the match outright for Premiership Rugby betting, the win for Newcastle Falcons is at 8/1* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365).

So they are big underdogs and a victory for them looks a tad unlikely.

Newcastle have conceded at least 27 points in each of their last three league matches.

On the other side of that, they have failed to score more than 14 points in two of their last three league fixtures.

Newcastle Falcons have not been a big scoring threat this season.

Only bottom side Worcester Warriors have scored fewer points in Premiership Rugby action than Newcastle Falcons this term.

Given that they are facing a Saints side who are just going to throw everything at this, this is extra tough for the Falcons.

A Northampton Saints -20 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (odds recorded 18:45 GMT on June 2nd, 2022 at Bet365).

That just pretty much sums up the difficulty that lies ahead for them on the weekend.
