Worcester Warriors Preview – Can Worcester stop the rot?

Worcester Warriors are having some massive struggles once again this season and are relegation favourites now.

It has been five defeats in a row for them in the Premiership since beating London Irish at Swimways on the opening weekend of the season.

They were hammered at Northampton last weekend, conceding 10 tries.

Worcester are 9/2 underdogs for Premiership Rugby on the weekend, which is really no surprise* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021).

The Warriors have conceded at least 40 points in each of their last three matches.

It’s been 30+ points taht gone against them in each of their last five.

In last season’s encounters with Wasps, Worcester lost both of the fixtures.

That was Worcester’s first loss at home against Wasps since 2017.

Our betting prediction:
Sale 1-7 winning margin

* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021)


In their last ten home fixtures in the Premiership, Worcester Warriors have claimed just one victory.

That was this season’s opener against the Irish.

In their last match at Sixways, Worcester scored just three points in a heavy defeat by Leicester Tigers.

Worcester haven’t scored more than 10 points in any of their last three league fixtures.

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them up against it in this one.

A Worcester +13 handicap is at a quote of even money for rugby betting* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021).

No team has conceded more tries than Worcester this season in the Premiership (35), and they have shipped 11 tries in the final quarter of matches alone.


Sale Sharks Preview – Can struggling Sale pick up the win?

The form of Sale Sharks this season has not been particularly hot, but that said they are strong odds-on favourites for Saturday.

There is a current quote of 1/7 on Sale Sharks to produce the match win* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021).

Sale Sharks suffered a defeat last weekend in action, going down 19-11 at the in-form Leicester Tigers.

That has left them on a W2 D1 L3 record this season.

Neither of their victories for the campaign have come away from home.

In fact, they are on a five-match streak on the road without having picked up a victory (D1 L4).

That’s three defeats in three road games this season.

It will be interesting to see what kind of margin this match is settled by.

All but one of Sale’s last nine away games have finished with a margin of no more than 8 points.

Sale Sharks -13 handicap therefore may be a little risky for the weekend’s Premiership rugby betting at 10/11* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021).

With six wins in their last eight against Worcester, Sale are still going to be taken as the winners.

The Sharks have the highest win rate against Worcester than against any other team in the Premiership.

You just feel that Sale are going to get into Worcester’s 22 often enough to pick up points.

They are not going to get a better chance than this to break their poor streak of Premiership road form.


Worcester Warriors vs Sale Sharks Betting Advice

We are going with Sale for the victory but wouldn’t totally trust them to come up and cover a big margin at Sixways.

The biggest margin that any of Sale’s matches this season have been settled by is 10 points (a defeat against Exeter).

So it is the Worcester +13 handicap at Even money that we are changing in this one* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021).


Key Facts – Worcester Warriors vs Sale Sharks Betting Tip

  • Worcester Warriors have lost 6 of their last 8 against Sale Sharks
  • Worcester Warriors have won 1 of their last 10 home games in the Premiership
  • Sale Sharks are winless in five road games (D1 L4)


Sale haven’t looked a particularly confident side on the road recently, although this is their easiest game on paper.

We have to imagine that they collect the win but a narrow Sale 1-10 winning margin at 23/10 is the play* (odds recorded 20:01 GMT on October 28th, 2021).

Worcester’s woes just don’t look like ending anytime soon at all.
