Worcester will be looking to ensure a good points haul at home in this Saturday’s fixture against Wasps. It would appear to be a great chance for the Warriors to potentially shift themselves up the table a bit and to perhaps nudge closer to the top four. However, Wasps may well be worth considering as underdogs instead.

Can the Warriors hold their ground at Sixways?

It has not been the most convincing of seasons from Worcester at Sixways. They have lost three times there already, twice in the Premiership and once in the European Challenge Cup. So they have some work to do to try and turn home turf into a bit of a fortress again.

Each of the last four Premiership fixtures that Worcester have been involved in, have been won by the home team. So that is a decent trend, but it also indicates that indeed, the Warriors are a bit vulnerable. They have scored considerably fewer points in this season’s Premiership than what Wasps have put on the board. Will that be a telling factor on Saturday?

Our betting prediction:
Wasps +4 Handicap
10/11

Then there is the head to head which simply cannot be ignored. It is a ten match winning streak that Wasps are on against the Warriors. in league fixtures. That’s a pretty massive streak, and the bookmakers recognise that this doesn’t look like being the most comfortable of home games for the Warriors at all. In fact, they are worth taking on.

 

Away form of Wasps could sting the Warriors

There is a remarkable trend running in the matches of Wasps at the moment. They have won their last two games out on the road, but that’s not it. It is the fact that each of their last six games both on the domestic and European fronts, have been won by the away team. Away wins in rugby are not particularly common.

The overall head to head between the two teams is heavily in favour of the visitors. It is a 21-8 lead that Wasps hold over Worcester. There’s more to that as well. Wasps have won more away games against Worcester, than the Warriors have won at home against the Londoners. So the stats do support a flutter on the away team.
