After finishing runners up to Exeter in the Premiership Final last season, Wasps will be expected to go well again this season.

They just went from strength to strength in the last campaign, being a wonderful attacking side to watch.

But they did get a tricky opener against fellow top-four finishers from last season, the Bristol Bears.

Wasps Preview – Wasps to get up and running immediately

Wasps produced a fantastic W14 L8 least season on their way to finishing second in the table.

They finished second for the season as they lost to the Exeter Chiefs in the Premiership final. But there is so much there to build on.

Exeter were the only team to score more tries than Wasps did last eason.

They are stepping back into action on Sunday as a long 1/8 odds-on favourite for success in this match * (odds taken 05:49 GMT Friday, 20th November).

Wasps were on a seven match winning streak in Premiership rugby at the end of the last campaign.

That was ended with that loss in the Final against Exeter.

They are such a strong team at the Ricoh Arena, having suffered only one defeat there since January.

So they do look as if they are going to come firing out of the blocks by collecting a win on Sunday.

Our betting prediction:
Wasps 8-14 Winning Margin

A Wasps -13 handicap is currently at a 10/11 quote to back for this fixture* (odds taken 05:49 GMT Friday, 20th November).

In last season’s Premiership, Wasps took a W7 L4 record at the Ricoh Arena from the Premiership.


Bristol Preview – Can Briostl cause an upset?

Bristol collectd a good top-four finish for themselves in last season’s campaign.

But that put them into a semi final fixture against Wasps, in which they came up short, so this is a quick rematch between the two clubs.

That semi final defeat against Wasps is the only defeat that the Bristol Bears have suffered in their last six first team matches.

As a positive for them, in their last two seasons of Premiership Rugby, they have won their opening game of the campaign.

It has been five previous trips to the Ricoh Arena that Bristol have had in all competitions and they have won one of those visits.

That was a Premiership Cup fixture a couple of years ago.

So they are likely to find themselves on the backfoot.

The Bristal +13 handicap option for rugby betting is at 10/1* (odds taken 05:49 GMT Friday, 20th November).
