With the season in full swing, RW continue to put our (limited) knowledge to the test in the Premiership predictions challenge

Round Three: Just as some Aviva Premiership clubs are starting to build some momentum for the campaign ahead of them, so some of you prediction gurus are showing some clairvoyant clout. Here are our Superbru predictions for this weekend’s fixtures – see if you can do better.

Gloucester vs Exeter Chiefs

Gloucester produced a stirring comeback to edge a thriller at home to Sale last weekend, and the Cherry and Whites will need to back that up with a win here if they are to rebuild a fortress at Kingsholm. Exeter are looking to respond after a 24-20 defeat to Leicester in Round Two, with the Chiefs squad bolstered by the return of England winger Jack Nowell to the matchday 23. The visitors proved strongest in this fixture last season, and don’t be too surprised to see them do the same again today. Exeter by 5

Sale Sharks vs London Welsh

Danny Cipriani provided a fly-half masterclass last time out, playing a part in three tries for his side and adding a fourth himself. If he can produce a similar performance here, it would go a long way to helping Sale pick up their first win of the season. London Welsh secured a try bonus point in Round Two defeat at Bath, but the focus must turn to their defence this time out – another heavy loss could see them become only the second club in Premiership history to ship 50 points in three consecutive matches (bonus points for naming the other!). Expect the Sharks to get off the mark. Sale by 13

Harlequins vs London Wasps

The Stoop faithful will be desperate to see an immediate turnaround after Quins were humbled 39-0 in a dreadful result last Friday. Their visitors come into the game in polar-opposite form, having bested champions Northampton 20-16 at Adams Park. James Haskell put in an outstanding performance in that match, and his back-row clash with the likes of Chris Robshaw and Nick Easter could be explosive. Last weekend’s thrashing could well be the catalyst for a big reaction from the hosts. Harlequins by 9

Bath vs Leicester Tigers

This game is being touted as the battle of the fly-halves, as two unbeaten sides face off at the Rec. Bath’s George Ford has kept himself firmly in Stuart Lancaster’s thoughts with his performances so far, whilst Freddie Burns was named man-of-the-match in a controlling display at Exeter last weekend. On top of that clash, this old-school fixture always provides a ferocious battle at the breakdown. This one is likely to be the closest match of the weekend. Bath by 4

London Irish vs Saracens

Irish face the unenviable task of providing a speedbump to the Saracens juggernaut, with all logic suggesting a win for the visitors as the only foreseeable outcome. Shane Geraghty has been kicking well for the Exiles, but the brutal efficiency, in attack and defence, that Sarries showed last Friday should prove too much. Saracens by 16

Newcastle Falcons vs Northampton Saints

Newcastle’s 17-match losing streak would have come to an end last weekend, had Juan Pablo Socino brought his kicking boots to Kingston Park. Instead, five missed kicks meant that run stretched to 18 games, and the visit of the Saints this weekend is hardly a game to provide much respite. Jim Mallinder’s men will want a response to the Wasps defeat last time out, and their sparkling backline will sense an opportunity here. Northampton by 19
