THE PREDICTION

This match could be incredibly important to both teams early on as Worcester Warriors and London Irish look to be one of a few that end up towards the bottom-half of the table come the end of the season. Worcester were two wins better-off at the close of play as the last season was curtailed early and had ended strongly with a three-match winning streak. Despite the lack of fans, the home side will feel the more confident off the back of that late seasons success and they should come through this in potentially tight circumstances.
