THE PREDICTION

Newcastle Falcons were absolutely thumped away at Sandy Park last time out, conceding 74 points to end up as Exeter Chiefs’ record victory in the Premiership. They will push that aside as a poor day as they return home to where their form has been superb at times this season, including beating Northampton Saints 18-0 here in their previous game. Travelling Worcester Warriors came perilously close to winning their fourth match of the season, and only second without covid-related cancellations, but they lost 17-18 at home to Leicester Tigers and a similar outcome is on the cards here. The Falcons may be a little sore but will be targeting a huge response, so take the hosts to cover a cautious -5 here.
