Northampton News & Form

It has been a successful start to the new season by Northampton who finished fourth in last season’s table. Their wins have come out on the road against Saracens and at home to Worcester Warriors in this campaign. So the points out at Saracens, in particular, has been a very good return from them.

That is back to back home wins in the top flight which they have taken (carrying over from last season). So Northampton are set well for this one. The last time that Northampton managed to win their opening three games of a league season was back in 2012. They are currently holding a three-match winning streak over Harlequins in all competitions.

Harlequins News & Form

Harlequins opened their season with a defeat at Exeter. That was only a three-point defeat, however. Harlequins took a fifth-place finish in last season’s Premiership, running out of steam towards the end and were unable to lock down a place in the semi-finals. A decent performance out at Exeter though will have lifted them.

Quins got their first league win of the season last weekend in a home victory against Bristol by a 22-17 scoreline. The problem for the Quins is getting those away wins on the board. They have lost each of their last five top-flight away games. Another negative stat running for them is their inability to win back to back games. They haven’t done that since March this year.

Northampton vs Harlequins Prediction

The Saints should be able to go and get themselves that third straight win. They have been scoring well so far in the early stages of this season’s campaign. While Harlequins did battle well at Exeter on the opening weekend of the season, their lack of away wins speaks for itself. Northampton to take the home win.
