There Is A Lot To Play For On The Final Day Of The Aviva Premiership

We’ve finally reached the end of the regular Aviva Premiership season and there is still plenty to play for. 

The semi-final contenders have already been confirmed but the make-up of those semi-finals will be decided by the outcome of Newcastle Falcons v Wasps.

As it stands, the Exeter Chiefs will host the Newcastle Falcons while Saracens will host Wasps but that could all change if the Falcons manage to beat Dai Young’s side.

Elsewhere, Leicester Tigers, Gloucester and Sale Sharks will be battling it out to secure one of those coveted Champions Cup spots. The Sharks host the Tigers at the AJ Bell Stadium while Gloucester face a tricky away trip to London to face Saracens.

With so much on the line, we’re going to do out best to predict the outcome of each game, with 

Bath v London Irish – Bath Win 

Harlequins v Exeter Chiefs – Exeter Win 

Northampton Saints v Worcester Warriors – Northampton Win

Sale Sharks v Leicester Tigers – Sale Win 

Saracens v Gloucester – Saracens Win 

Newcastle Falcons v Wasps – Wasps Win 

This is arguably the most difficult match to call of Saturday’s fixtures.

Newcastle have made eight changes to their team for this clash while Wasps have made just two changes to their match-day 23.

It will be a sold-out crowd at Kingston Park so there is sure to be a raucous atmosphere in the north-east. It is likely that Newcastle have little preference to who they play in the semi-final but as they are without some of their top players through injury or simply rest, we think that Wasps will nick this one on what should be a great occasion.

Bet Of The Round: 

An accumulator which sees all the above sides winning will nearly give you a £50 return for a £10 bet.
