Gloucester News & Form

The Cherry & Whites are sat on a W2 L3 record from their five Premiership games this season. Their offensive output is slacking a little bit. There really hasn’t been all that many issues with them at the back, but they are just not delivering points consistently. Gloucester lost their last Premiership game, a 23-19 reverse out at Harlequins.

Gloucester 6-10 Winning Margin

William Hill

Their only win from their last seven fixtures across all competitions was a home success over Connacht in the Heineken Cup. The Cherry & Whites lost their last home league game, a 12-21 reverses against Saracens. They had been on a six-match winning streak at Kingsholm in the top flight before that.

Gloucester vs Worcester Head to Head

Each of the last five meetings have been won by the home teams
Gloucester’s only home loss against the Warriors was in 2009

Worcester News & Form

The Warriors have landed back to back league successes. So they have been stepping it up. Those wins came against Harlequins and Sale. History isn’t on their side in making it three in a row however, as the last time that Worcester managed to win three straight premiership games was in early 2016. But they are sitting in fourth place in the table, which is the loftiest position in the table that they have been since around the midway point of the 2005/06 season. So they have to be feeling good about themselves. Worcester have, however, only claimed one previous win at Kingsholm.

Gloucester vs Worcester Prediction

The home win does look favourable given Gloucester usually being a reliable bunch at Kingsholm. They have the strong head to head home form against the Warriors as well. Worcester will be confident, but a narrow loss for them could play out.
