THE PREDICTION

Harlequins suffered a second consecutive defeat in the Premiership as they were beaten by Worcester Warriors last week. That loss leaves them with a huge challenge to stay in touch with the top four and it is likely they will need to win this one if they are to have any chance. They host Northampton Saints who sit eight points ahead of them but they will need to show more than they did last week as they were limited to just three points against Bath in an underwhelming display. Both teams will believe they can win this one but having won their last three league meetings, Saints will be confident and can come out on top with the benefit of a +12 start.
