Gloucester vs Bath Predictions


Bath have had a strong start to the season and have been unfortunate in their two one-point defeats. I fancy them go cover the -1 handicap at Gloucester.

Head to Head


Gloucester have won two of their last three against Bath. However, Bath were victorious in April this year by 33-24 away from home.

Gloucester Form


Gloucester are eighth on the Rugby Premiership table with two wins and two defeats from their four games to date. 

They began the season well, winning their opening two games. First Gloucester saw off Harlequins 29-28 in a tight contest at home before beating Newcastle 18-14 away.

Since then, Gloucester were well beaten 24-3 at home by Saracens before going down 25-10 to Sale last weekend.

Gloucester Injuries & Team News


As international players start returning for all sides in the Premiership the teams will strengthen. Gloucester should be able to name a strong side on Friday.

Bath Form


Bath are fourth on the Rugby Premiership table despite having the same record as Gloucester of won two, lost two. The bonus points are what has proven the difference with Bath already having earned four.

In the opening round Bath were beaten 43-42 away at Northampton before defeating Newcastle 34-26 at home. It was followed by a 25-16 victory at Saracens.

Last week Bath suffered their second one-point defeat of the season, going down 25-24 at home to Leicester.

Bath Injuries & Team News


Bath have been very good this season. I don’t see them making too many alterations to their side.

Verdict

I'm backing Bath to cover the -1 handicap against Gloucester.
