THE PREDICTION

Saracens came unstuck at Bristol last week but they welcome back Owen Farrell at fly-half as he makes his 200th appearance for the club. That will be a boost to the side and while they are already relegated, they still seem to be playing with good motivation in the camp. They welcome Harlequins here and they are coming off a win last week as they edged past Sale 16-10 in a good win. They will fancy their chances of getting a result here especially if Saracens show any sign of easing off the gas. Harlequins can keep this within the +7.5 handicap and are worth considering in this one.
