Worcester Warriors vs Saracens
Competition: Aviva Premiership Rugby
Date: 11 February 2017
Kick-off: 16:00 CET
The Warriors will have a lot to do when they face the Saracens who are definitely a big contender for the title, having done the double last year as well. Warriors in the meantime are only battling to not be at the bottom of the log with Bristol.
Since they made it into the Premiership the Warriors have struggled, there is nothing different about this season as they currently find themselves on 14 points, and in 11th place. It s only Bristol who are doing worse, but seeing as they have finally found some form, they are only a point away from catching the Warriors. Now, even though they are at home, Worcester are going to find it tough going against a Saracens side that has looked like the most complete outfit all season.
Saracens have been leading the Premiership for most of the season, it is only the Wasps and their free flowing game with loads of bonus points have seen them on top. Saracens have lost two games this whole season, and the first loss against Harlequins broke a winning streak that stretched deep into last season. Their plan has had to change with the Wasps also losing two games, but scoring plenty of four-try bonus points, their aim will definitely be in this game to get a load of points against a weak Warriors side.
Worcester Warriors vs Saracens: Head-to-Head Stats
Unsurprisingly because Saracens have been so dominant in the Premier League for so long, and the Warriors only coming and going, there have been 21 games and Saracens have won 14 of them with there also being one draw. In total, Warriors have won just the six games.
Worcester Warriors vs Saracens: Prediction
Saracens are a team that finds it out of sorts to be losing, so you cannot see them losing against a team that has only won two games all season. Warriors might be at home, and have their star scrumhalf Francois Hougaard back, but it will only do so much. Saracens will cut loose and look to score at least four tries.
Worcester Warriors vs Saracens: Tips
Even with a host of England stars missing there is so much depth in the Saracens side that they will easily score four or more tries for a bonus point.
