THE PREDICTION

Leicester Tigers earned a confidence-boosting victory as they edged London Irish last week but that was not enough to move them up the table. They would be bottom had it not been for Saracens’ points deduction and they will be eager to climb away from their lowly position with this clash with Gloucester. The hosts have lost their last two but have still managed to post points in the process and with both teams eager for the win, they should be able to give the ball some air and produce a game with at least 50 points.
