THE PREDICTION

Bristol Bears were afforded an odd extra week off in preparations for their play-off semi-final against Harlequins as London Irish were forced to cancel their last game of the season due to covid-19 cases in the squad. That took the shine off of the final day as Bristol became uncatchable at the top of the table but they will head out first on Saturday afternoon ahead of likely play-off final foes Exeter Chiefs with a statement to make and travelling Harlequins look set to struggle here. The visitors have lost five of their last six away games in the Premiership including to leaders Bristol back in late March and also lost to Bristol at home in the reverse fixture. Take the hosts to cover -7 at home in an enjoyable but likely straightforward enough victory here.
