Gallagher Premiership 2019-2020 Round 19 Predictions

Only three rounds of the Gallagher Premiership season left. Boy the players will be looking for this season to be over and done with. Playing mid-week games is toll on the body and it’s something that only the deepest squads can ever hope to cope with.

Bristol v Northampton Saints – Bristol by 10

With three games left Saints can technically still make the playoffs but you have to think that they have too much ground to make up.

Facing Bristol who are fighting for a home semi-final is not what Northampton need. You have to say this looks like a comfortable home win.

Wasps v Leicester Tigers – Wasps by 10

Wasps are another of the five teams that are fighting it out for four spaces in the playoffs. Well to be more accurate one of the four teams playing for the three spaces to join Exeter in the playoffs.

The New Zealand Sport Radio podcast is available on Spotify, iTunes, iHeartRadio, Acast and many more podcatchers.

Tigers are limping home and can’t wait to put this season behind them. This is another comfortable home win.

Exeter Chiefs v Gloucester Rugby – Exeter Chiefs by 10

With the Champions League being the top 8 teams from the Premiership next season, Gloucester really have nothing left to fight for. This is purely a pride game and very few away teams get anything out of Sandy Park even when they need to. The theme of comfortable home wins comtinues.

Sale Sharks v Saracens – Sale Sharks by 5

Sale are looking at hosting a semi-final whilst Saracens are looking at preparing their teams best for Europe. With Sale need the points more I’m backing them for the win. However it all depends on how Saracens turn up on the day.

London Irish v Harlequins – Harlequins by 3

There really is a possibility of Irish sneaking into the Champions League next season if they win this. I don’t think that would be a good thing for them as survival next season will be their priority.

Quins should get the win here as Irish are on a long losing streak. However Quins only have one away win this season. Who’s going to lose the game the least?

Bath Rugby v Worcester Warriors – Bath Rugby by 15

Back to the comfortable home wins theme here. Bath fighting it out for the playoffs and Worcester already thinking about the relegation battle for next season…

Record So Far

67 from 108 or 62%, five from six last round. Not quite the full-house!
