There was more misery for Worcester last weekend as they conceded 50 points in a defeat at Harlequins.

The bottom side in the Premiership have been conceding heavily in their last few matches and are likely to be up against it in this one.

Sale Sharks are a top-four side and they are running in great form at the moment having won four of their last five in all competitions.

They will be expected to pick up another success on Saturday.

Worcester Preview – Warriors in for another tough day at Sixways?

It is a six-match losing streak that the Worcester Warriors are currently on in the Premiership.

That was since they were declared winners against Newcastle on February 20th.

But in terms of them having physically won a fixture, they have not claimed a win since the opening weekend of the season.

That was against London Irish by a single-point margin.

In the match outright, the win for Worcester is at a quote of 5/2 odds* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

So that is a W1 L13 record from their completed fixtures in this season’s campaign.

In total that is a W1 L5 record in their home games played in the Premiership this season that Worcester have produced.

Only in one of their six home fixtures for the campaign have they managed to reach 20 points.

Given the state that they are in, it is hard to see them coming up with a victory on Saturday.

Our betting prediction:
Sale Sharks 1-12 winning margin

Back in Round 6, Worcester Warriors lost 20-13 in Salford in Round 6.

But the last time that they lost both games in a single season against the Sharks was in the 2017/18 campaign.

In the handicap market for this Premiership rugby betting game a Worcester +11 is at a quote of even money* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

Four of Worcester’s five home losses this season in the Premiership have been settled by a margin of four points or fewer.

While the win still looks a little bit beyond them, can Worcester at least keep things tight on the scoreboard?


Sale Sharks Preview – Big chance for the Sharks

While Worcester Warriors are floundering at the foot of the Premiership table, Sale Sharks have much loftier ambitions.

They finished the last round of action in third place in the table, level on points with Harlequins who are right behind them.

Sale are the lowest-scoring team of the current top four and they have scored fewer tries of all teams currently sitting in the top eight.

They are the heavy favourites to the tune of 2/7 odds-on the match outright for rugby betting on Saturday* (odds recorded 01:49 GMT on April 3rd, 2021).

Last weekend they had to grind one out a bit, taking a three-point margin success over second-from-bottom Gloucester.

Their last two league victories have been recorded by a margin of three points or fewer.

But they do have excellent form behind them.

Sale Sharks have only suffered one defeat in their last six Premiership Rugby fixtures, which was against Northampton on March 13th.

Their away record totally stands up as well.

There have been two losses from the Sharks this season on the road in the Premiership since December.

Those were at Harlequins and Northampton.

So, the Sharks certainly look strong enough to pick up the victory on the weekend.

Away from home this season, the Sharks have posted a W5 L3 record in the Premiership.

Of the five wins that they have recorded, all have been by a margin of 10 points or fewer.
