Can Worcester Warriors achieve something that they haven’t managed since 2020 on the weekend?

That would be making it back to back league wins in Premiership Rugby after beating Exeter Chiefs in their last match.

It’s the Newcastle Falcons who stand in their way at Sixways on Saturday.

Worcester Warriors Preview – Can Warriors deliver at Sixways?

Worcester had been scheduled to face Gloucester last weekend, but that match was cancelled.

So it leaves their last completed match as their victory against Exeter.

That win for the Warriors, a 35-31 success at Sixways is one of the big upsets of the Premiership Rugby season.

In the match outright for Saturday’s rugby betting, Worcester are 4/6 to land the victory* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfred).

Worcester’s overall record this season is W5 D1 L19 in Premiership Rugby.

Only Newcastle Falcons and Bath Rugby are beneath the Warriors in the standings.

Worcester Warrior’s home record in this season’s league campaign is W5 L4.

So they are in the positive at Sixways and there has been a trend in their last five matches there.

Worcester Warriors have alternated between a win and a loss in their last five on home turf (W3 L2).

Can they snap that and make it back to back victories at Sixways?

* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at betfred)


Each of Worcester’s last three victories at Sixways have been by a margin of no more than five points.

So it’s likely not worth pushing the handicap line for rugby betting too far.

A Worcester -2 handicap is at 10/11* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfred).

Worcester’s victory over Exeter in their last match came after they had lost seven of their previous eight fixtures (W1).

Their 35 points against the Chiefs was the second-highest tally that they have managed this season.


Newcastle Falcons Preview – Can Falcons extend form over Worcester?

The Newcastle Falcons have not been having a great time of things as it’s been a long while since they won.

Their last victory for the campaign was in October against Exeter at Sandy Park.

That’s one of two road wins that the Falcons have recorded in this campaign.

The other was against Bath at the Rec in Round 2.

Earlier this season the Falcons were held to a home draw by Worcester.

For Saturday’s Premiership Rugby betting, the away win is at a quote of 11/8* (odds recorded 14:12 GMT on April 1st, 2022 at Betfred)

Home and away combined, Newcastle Falcons have lost their last nine league fixtures.

If they lose on the weekend, it will equal Bath’s current record of 10 straight defeats for this season.
