THE PREDICTION

Wasps and Worcester Warriors are both expected to make wholesale changes to their line-ups for this game but it is Wasps who come into the match in better shape. They picked up a good 34-21 win over Northampton Saints last weekend and they have the greater depth in their ranks to change things around but still field a strong team. The Warriors were hammered by Gloucester 44-15 and this could be another tough game for them given the youth in their side. Wasps should be more than capable – even with changes – to pick up a comfortable victory here.
