Sale Sharks (22/25) v Exeter Chiefs (22/25) - 19:45, Friday 26th February
Sale suffered their second loss in a row against Harlequins last time out. It was an even game for the first 20 minutes, but Sale then conceded 21 points in just 12 minutes. By the time Sale even scored, they were already 24-0 down and there was little to no chance of a comeback. If Sale are going to reach the playoffs, then they’ll need to end this losing streak. Unfortunately for them, they face Exeter this weekend. Regardless of the troubles Exeter have faced recently, they are still a strong side. However, most recently they lost at home to Northampton Saints. Northampton are known for a poor defence, and with Exeter only scoring 12 points, it would have been a major disappointment. If Chiefs can turn up on Friday, though, we can’t back against them.
Bristol Bears (2/9) v Leicester Tigers (14/5) - 13:00, Saturday 27th February
Despite sitting at the top of the Premiership table, Bristol threw away a 20 point lead in their last match against London Irish. Bristol dominated the first half and headed into the break with a 31-11 lead. But they managed just 3 points in the second half, whilst Irish scored 31 23 of their own. It was a disappointing 34-34 draw, but Bristol will feel confident they can bounce back against Leicester. Tigers were far more convincing in a 27-8 win over Wasps. Despite having 2 men sent off, Leicester were dominant from the start. Wasps also had a man dismissed, which held them at bay for the second half, but it was an impressive display by Leicester. If they can produce a similar result, they could get a shock win against a Bristol side that has proven they could be vulnerable.
Newcastle Falcons (19/10) v Harlequins (4/11) - 15:00, Saturday 27th December
Newcastle will take to the pitch for the first time since the 7th February on Saturday. The Falcons have seen their last 2 games postponed and will be eager to be back in action. The break might have benefited Newcastle, who were on a 2 game losing streak. Harlequins will be hoping that Newcastle pick up where they left off on Saturday. Quins moved up to 3rd in the Premiership after a comfortable win over Sale last weekend. An outburst late in the first half gave Harlequins a 21-0 lead at halftime. That lead was quickly extended to 24-0 in the second half, killing any hopes of a late Sale comeback. Newcastle have shocked some teams this season, but we think Harlequins will come out on top here.
Wasps (21/50) v London Irish (17/10) - 15:00, Saturday 27th February
Wasps will be disappointed to come into this game on the back of a 27-8 defeat against Leicester. Tigers were reduced to 14 after just 26 minutes, but by that point, Wasps were already facing a 11-3 deficit. Kieran Brookes was sent off just after halftime to even up the teams, but even when Wasps had a man advantage, there was no sign of them taking the lead. It’s been a tough start to the season for Wasps, who’ve failed to gain any real momentum coming into Week 11. London Irish showed plenty of fight in their comeback draw against league leaders Bristol. Despite being 31-11 down at the break, London Irish completed a comeback in the second half to give them a 34-34 draw with Bristol. There’s certainly been some bright sparks in this Irish side this season, but with the table so tight at the moment, they need to keep this run going.
Gloucester Rugby (3/10) v Worcester Warriors (47/20) - 15:15, Saturday 27th February
Gloucester must be thinking that the whole of Premiership Rugby is against them at this point. After Val Rapava Ruskin was dismissed early on against Bath, Gloucester still took a short-lived lead. By the time Bath also saw a red card, Gloucester were tiring and failed to make the push to retake the lead, eventually falling to a 16-14 defeat. However, there were positives to take for Gloucester heading into their match against Worcester. Warriors come into this game on the back of an extended break following their postponement at the weekend. Worcester are without a win since 21st November, so they would welcome a victory. This might not be a classic game to watch, but the potential impact on the relegation battle makes it the most important match of the week.
Northampton Saints (4/11) v Bath Rugby (37/20) - 13:00, Sunday 28th February
It looks like the extended break worked well for Northampton Saints. With a few weeks to prepare, Northampton went to Exeter and came away with a 13-12 win. It was a tense game for both sides, but Northampton produced a surprisingly solid defensive performance. A late Exeter try might have worried them, but Saints held on for an important win. Bath benefited from an early red card in their win against Gloucester. Even with that early dismissal though, Bath laboured to a 7-6 win in the first half before having Mike Williams dismissed. With both sides missing a player, Bath managed to edge out a 16-14 win, but they’ll need a much improved performance against Northampton.
