THE PREDICTION

Both of these teams have struggled to find any real consistency since the restart but it should make for an entertaining game with the two teams relatively well matched. Gloucester name virtually an entirely different side from that which played on Wednesday but they bring back some key players such as Danny Cipriani and Jonny May. Harlequins make eight changes themselves as they look to cement sixth place in a match that will see one thousand fans be allowed to enter the stadium. That will surely boost Gloucester and with some key men back in the side, the hosts have to be favoured to win what should be a high-scoring game.
