THE PREDICTION

This match is a major mismatch on paper with the struggling Worcester Warriors making the trip to face Bath. The hosts have won four of their five games since the restart of play and as they sit just outside the top four play-off places, they know they simply have to get the win and ideally with the bonus point too. Both teams are making plenty of changes to their line-ups but with the Warriors struggling for form and motivation, that only points to another heavy loss and Bath will pick up a comprehensive victory here.
