Worcester won their one home game played in Premiership Rugby this season and what a boost it would be if they could follow up with another.

They play host to Gloucester who are already feeling the pressure once again.

The Cherry & Whites had a poor previous campaign and have suffered consecutive defeats at the start of this one.

Worcester Warriors Preview – Warriors look the pick

To kick off the new season, Worcester Warriors played host to London Irish at Sixways.

That was a testing game for them as well, because it was against the only team they beat last season.

Worcester, who finished bottom of the Premiership table last term, came up with a 36-24 triumph at home over Irish.

Last weekend they suffered a 29-35 loss away at Harlequins.

So they weren’t disgraced in that and the Warriors look to be the way to go for rugby betting here.

The win for Worcester is at 4/7 so the bookies have them pegged as clear favourites* (odds recorded 19:16 GMT on September 30th, 2021).

The fact that they have taken a try-bonus in each game so far tells a lot.

The last time that they managed three bonuses in a row was back in November 2017.

Worcester’s extra scoring threat could just win them the day on the weekend.

Last season’s corresponding fixture was cancelled, Worcester being declared winners.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Worcester Warriors have a strong head to head form against the Cherry & Whites as well.

They have only suffered one loss in their last nine home fixtures against them.

This fixture is generally a tightly-contested one.

13 of the 15 previous home games for Worcester against Glouestser in the Premiership have been settled by no more than 10 points.

A Worcester -3 handicap for this one is at a quote of 10/11* (odds recorded 19:16 GMT on September 30th, 2021).

Since the start of 2020, no team has lost more Premiership fixtures than Worcester (30).

Gloucester have the second-highest tally of defeats in that span (25).


Gloucester Preview – early struggles for Cherry & Whites

Gloucester went to Northampton in the opening round of matches for the new Premiership season.

They were beaten by 14 points at Franklin’s Gardens.

Last weekend the Cherry & Whites returned to Kingsholm and lost 26-33 against Leicester Tigers.

So there’s pressure back on them after finishing second from bottom last season in the league.

Never before have Gloucester started a Premiership season with three straight defeats.

Will that happen on the weekend?

In the match outright for rugby betting, the win for Gloucester is at a quote of 6/4* (odds recorded 19:16 GMT on September 30th, 2021).

Considering that they only earned two away wins last season as well, points to them having a difficult afternoon.

The road wins for the Cherry & Whites last season were at Wasps in March and then at Northampton in May.

Gloucester do have the better of things in the most recent head to head meetings.

They haven’t lost to the Warriors in any game since April 2019.

But then Gloucester’s record at Sixways in the Premiership is pretty terrible.

Since 2010 Gloucester have picked up one league success at Sixways only, which was a victory in 2020.

The Cherry & Whites seem to be leaning towards a kicking game this season, having kicked the ball more often than any other team so far this season.

Are they lacking the confidence to hold and control?


Worcester Warriors vs Gloucester Betting Advice

Key Facts – Worcester Warriors vs Gloucester Betting Tip

  • Worcester Warriors have earned a try bonus in both matches this season
  • Worcester Warriors haven’t beaten Gloucester since April 2019
