The Warriors have fallen on to some hard times once again this season and will be looking to try and avoid their fourth loss in a row.

They play host to Leicester Tigers on Saturday as the Warriors desperately look for a lift.

But the Tigers arrive in some cracking form and the visitors are strong odds-on favourites to bank the success.

Worcester Warriors Preview – Can Warriors find a win?

There have been three Premiership Rugby defeats on the spin for the Worcester Warriors.

They did open their season with a victory. That was at Sixways against the London Irish.

But it has been downhill for them since then.

Defeats against Harlequins, Gloucester and Exeter have since followed.

The latter of those saw them have their least productive game, Worcester losing 42-5 at Sandy Park last weekend.

In the match outright in Premiership Rugby betting the win for Worcester Warriors is at 11/5 * (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

This slump in form leaves Worcester with one win at Sixways since November last year (all competitions).

Since the start of last season, Worcester have claimed two league wins only (not including declared victories).

Those were both against the London Irish.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 1-10 winning margin

* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021)


Worcester Warriors have historically struggled badly against Leicester Tigers in the Premiership.

Only against Bath have they suffered more league defeats than they have against the Tigers (L24).

There have only been six previous league wins for the Warriors against Leicester.

A Worcester +7 handicap is at 10/11 for Premiership Rugby betting* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

This would be somewhat of an upset if the Warriors took the win.

They have conceded the most points per game on average in the 2021 calendar year, just over 31 per fixture.


Leicester Tigers Preview – More to come from the Tigers

It has been a perfect season for Leicester Tigers so far in Premiership Rugby.

They are leading the way with four wins from four on the board.

In that run they have faced heavyweights Saracens and Exeter, while they have also seen off London Irish and Gloucester.

Away from home, the wins have been at Gloucester and then London Irish last weekend.

In the match outright Leicester Tigers are 4/11 odds-on* (odds recorded 18:33 GMT on October 14th, 2021).

If we carry their form back to last season as well, that’s a five-match winning streak in Premiership Rugby that Leicester are on.

The last time that they managed to win six in a row in the competition was in 2017.

Leicester have won their last three league matches against the Warriors.

In last season’s corresponding fixture, the Tigers dug out a victory at Sixways by a single point.

That snapped a run of three defeats in a row that they had taken at the venue.
