London Irish vs Gloucester

London Irish come into this match on the back of a defeat to Sale Sharks in their last match which was their third loss in their opening four matches. The sole victory that they have achieved did come in their only home game this season. Gloucester had a tough derby encounter with Bristol Bears in the last round and needed a penalty late in the game to snatch the win 31-28. They will be disappointed with their defence as they presented the Bears with soft tries. Gloucester will need to be better in defence if they are to win.

TIP: London Irish may have struggled on the road this season but they are very difficult to beat at home and welcome back England utility back Henry Arundell. His duel with the Gloucester back three will be one of the highlights especially as he and Johnny May are probably fighting for one place in the national team. The bookies have Gloucester as slight favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.80, Playabets 1.85 and Sunbet 1.82


London Irish vs Gloucester

  • Gloucester are unbeaten in their last three matches against London Irish.
  • There has only ever been one draw between these sides.
  • Irish have only lost once in their last five home matches against Gloucester

Latest results for both teams

Gloucester beat Bristol Bears 31-28 in their last match while London Irish lost 37-14 to the Sale Sharks in their last match.


Gloucester have been the most dangerous team in the league over the past two seasons with their driving maul. If Irish can find a way to legally stop the maul then they are well on their way to victory but this is no easy task. The visitors have two of the best wingers in world rugby but they struggle to get the ball out to them .They will be looking to flyhalf Adam Hasting to launch their dangerous backline then they could run riot. Both teams look evenly matched in the scrums with Argentinians Santiago Socino and Agustin Creevy going up against each other at hooker. I am predicting a Gloucester win by five points.
