THE PREDICTION

Harlequins do not have a great record at Worcester in recent times but they will fancy their chances against a Warriors side that has lost their last eight competitive matches. The home side will make ten changes for this game as they look to rotate their team and add some freshness into the side while trying to reverse this poor run of form. They meet a Harlequins side that welcome back Chris Ashton after injury and the visitors will hope to get back to winning ways after losing to Saracens last time out. Their line-up will be similar to that which beat Sale almost two weeks ago and they can inspire them to victory against the struggling Warriors here too.
