This will be an interesting Premiership rugby clash on the weekend as it features two teams who struggled last season.

Both London Irish and Worcester finished in the bottom four in the standings.

So this is a good early chance for someone to pick up a positive points-haul to kick start their season.

Home side Worcester are the favourites to get that outcome.

Worcester Preview – Can Worcester collect the home win?

This is a good chance for Worcester to get off the mark for the season.

They are the 8/11 odds-on favourites in the match outright for rugby betting* (odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November).

The Warriors had their issues last season collecting a W8 L14 record overall in the top flight.

They ended up finishing fourth from bottom with a 42-point haul on the board.

There was only one team in the league who produced fewer tries than Worcester did during the last campaign.

That’s reflected, we feel, in the handicap for rugby betting here. Worcester -2 handicap is at 10/11* (odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November).

So it is a thin margin that is expected by the bookmakers.

Our betting prediction:
Worceter 1-12 Winning Margin

(odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November)


Worcester earned a W5 L6 record on home turf in last season’s campaign and one of those wins did come against the Exiles.

Worcester have suffered just one defeat in their last five matches against London Irish and that didn’t happen at Sixways.

They did hit a little bit of form at the end of the last campaign against Worcester.

The Warriors won their last three games (they were awarded a win against Sale in Round 22 which was a fixture that wasn’t played).


London Irish Preview – Exiles set for more Premiership struggles?

Since February this year, London Irish have won only one Premiership game. That was against an understrength Exeter in Round 22.

So it was a difficult season for them. But they have won their opening game played in the last two campaigns of Premiership rugby.

London Irish go to Sixways on Saturday as the 6/5 underdogs in the rugby betting match outright* (odds taken 04:29 GMT, Friday 20th November).

The last time that they did collect a league win at Sixways was in September 2013.

How they would enjoy one here to give themselves a boost at the end of the season, as they are one of the favourites for relegation.

The Exiles were third from bottom in the last campaign, finishing six points behind Worcester.


Worcester vs London Irish Betting Advice

The Exiles don’t look as if they are going to have enough to get things together and pull off the away win.

Their poor record for the most part of this year paints a picture for us.

They are facing a team who “won” their last three games of the campaign, scoring well.

In that sequence there was a 40-25 win for the Warriors away at London Irish.
