THE PREDICTION

Saracens made it back-to-back wins in the Premiership as they saw off Gloucester last week and they look set for a strong end to the season before they are relegated. They head to Twickenham Stoop to take on London Irish and it could be a long afternoon for the side that have lost five games in a row. Irish have mustered just 10 points in their last two matches and with Sarries averaging 37 points in their last two, a third straight win is on the cards for Saracens with the margin likely to be at least 25 points.
