ENGLAND: Premiership Rugby – Round 1
Worcester Warriors would have been relegated from the Premiership last season having finished 18 points behind second-from-bottom Gloucester but they were stayed an execution by the pandemic. With this season also seeing a lack of relegation the teams at the bottom could be interesting outliers in tighter matches and it would be a wise time to build a lasting philosophy for improvements whilst they can.
Worcester came close in plenty of their defeats last season and London Irish enjoyed the vast amount of their good fortune at their new home. With fans back in the grounds ready to help make a difference, take the hosts to win here in what could be a very tight game.
