THE PREDICTION

Wasps just about won a Premiership classic last time out with a 36-39 victory on the road at struggling London Irish and they could carry that momentum through to this last game of the season against Leicester Tigers. The hosts also saw a scoreline with a tight margin but lost their home game against leaders Bristol Bears 23-26 to end a strong run of form at home. With moods shifting and last-day dramas likely this Saturday one of these sides Wasps could well miss out on a Champions Cup berth if the teams below them snatch a win. Take the hosts to end the season strongly in front of their fans but this result could come perilously close to a draw.
