The dire season for Worcester in the Premiership continued last weekend as they suffered another defeat.

They are still at the foot of the table but go into the weekend’s action just two points behind Gloucester.

So they have a decent chance of avoiding the wooden spoon if they could find their winning touch.

Northampton will expect to leave Sixways with maximum points on Saturday afternoon.

Northampton Saints Preview – Can Warriors end their winless streak?

Warriors still winless since the start of the season.

Worcester Warriors had a little West Country derby day at Bath last weekend and it did not turn out well for them.

They suffered a 47-22 loss.

Since their declared victory over Newcastle, the Warriors have lost all four matches.

While Worcester Warriors have a W3 L11 record in Premiership Rugby this season, two of those wins were declared.

The one victory that Worcester produced in the match was on the opening weekend of the new season against London Irish.

It was a victory earned by a single point margin as well.

It looks, once again, as if the Warriors are going to have their backs against the wall in league action on the weekend.

Given this long winless streak of form, it’s no surprise to see them kick off as underdogs on the weekend at Sixways.

The scoring threat just isn’t there from them.

From the 12 matches that they have actually played in the Premiership this season, Worcester are averaging 16 points scored per fixture.

That’s not likely to be anywhere near enough to take down a Northampton side who haven’t exactly been prolific themselves.

There is more to this as well as we look ahead to Worcester v Northampton rugby betting. The Warriors have lost their last six matches against Worcester.

Their last win over the Saints was at Sixways in November 2017.

Earlier this season Worcester suffered a 29-10 loss at Northampton Saints.

From their action back at Sixways this season, it has been a W1 L4 record from Worcester Warriors.

But, only their defeat against Bath was by a big margin.

Each of the other defeats at home for the Warriors have been by a margin of four points or fewer.

In their last home fixture, they were beaten only by a point by the current league leaders Bristol Bears.

But whether or not they can turn those small margins around and into victories is a different thing.


Worcester Preview – Saints to steal the show?

Northampton faced Bristol Bears at home last weekend and duly lost. That was a 21-28 loss that the Saints suffered.

So they were not disgraced in defeat at all in that fixture.

But the result leaves the Saints with only one victory in their last four league games.

The lone victory that they took in that sequence was at home against Sale Sharks.

So can they pull out the road win? In their penultimate away game in Premiership Rugby, they visited Exeter and won.

Northampton Saints to win rugby betting odds: 4/9

In their last away game, the Saints lost at Harlequins and that snapped a four match winning streak on their travels that they had been on (including a declared victory.

The overall away record for Northampton Saints is W3 L3.

So it has been hit and miss a little bit from them.

But just as Worcester’s home games this season have, by and large, been tight affairs, so too have been Northampton’s away games.

All but one of the Saints’ away games have been settled by a margin of no more than nine points.

So the handicap line for Worcester Warriors v Northampton Saints rugby betting does look thin.

Let’s dig into the head to head just a little bit more ahead of the game.

In their last five visits to Sixways, Northampton Saints are W3 L2, winning two of the last three.

Their last two victories there have been by a margin of at least six points, the bigger being a whopping 26-option margin success in 2018.

Northampton have averaged 20 points per away game, so haven’t been particularly strong.

But then overall this season they edge Worcester in the scoring department. So whichever way we look at this, it looks like being a tight game.


Northampton Saints vs Worcester Betting Advice

We are going to side with the away win, but it will probably be a narrow one. At least that is what the stats seem to indicate.

The Worcester +5 handicap line is really, really tight for us, but we can just get there at even money in rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:28 GMT on March 25th, 2021).

The Warriors really haven’t been rolled over badly on home turf.

  • Worcester have not won a match since the opening weekend of the season
