Leicester Tigers - favorite to win
After falling behind Exeter Chiefs in the first match of the 2022/2023 premiership season, Leicester Tigers will go into this match hoping for a bounce back win against Newcastle Falcons. The host lost in a close 24-20 to Chiefs last Saturday and will now be focused on getting an easy win at home. The Tigers are seated 8th in the league with 1 point. The host will be relying on their attacking strengths, especially Freddie Burns, Hanro Liebenberg, and Charlie Clare who did well to convert their chances last week. Despite their effective attack, there is still a lot of work to be done in defense. However, we expect Leicester Tigers to get a clear win in this match.
Newcastle Falcons - Falcons to challenge for a win
Newcastle Falcons had one of the worst weekends last week with their 40-31 loss to Harlequins. The visitors have now gone 5 straight matches without a win in all competitions. Looking at their squad and performance, the visitors do not have the quality needed to get a win against Leicester Tigers. Moreover, their performance in the opening match of the season was below par. However, we can not completely write them off. We will be backing them to get at least an over 12 points in this match.
