THE PREDICTION

Harlequins came out on top of an exciting tussle against Leicester Tigers last Saturday to make it four matches unbeaten in the Premiership. Their excellent run of form has coincided well with Sale Sharks’ first defeat in four in a 22-27 upset by Bath last Friday and that leaves this match up in the air in terms of a predictable winner. Quins have all the momentum and know they can leapfrog their visitors into third place with a statement victory here and they can be backed to cover -4 at home against the stunned Sharks.
