[[today!!]=] Today: Wasps vs Newcastle live online 21.04.2023
Right now, you’ve got two teams who are at the top end of the table and both of whom will be pushing hard to get a result. “What we need to do – and we’ve spelt this out to the boys this week – is go there and put in a big, emotional performance. I’m sure Pat [Lam] will be saying the same to his team. Like ourselves, Bristol will have been frustrated with their result last weekend up at Newcastle, so we have to be ready to come out of the blocks firing and meet the challenge they throw down head on. ”Captain Jack Yeandle returns at hooker for the visitors with Jack Nowell on the wing, while Toby Fricker returns from injury for the Bears with Ellis Genge, Harry Randall and Charles Piutau back in the fold.
Anthony Watson is also very likely to make his first appearance at Welford Road as a Tiger from the bench. For Sale, Bevan Rodd makes his first start of the campaign and Raffi Quirke returns to the bench for the first time since April in a promising sign for the Sharks and England. A tough result to predict, but Sale are in foreboding form, so one would think it’d be close.

i's guide to Premiership rugby round 5 - team news, fixtures, predictions and TV detailsThe fifth round of Premiership rugby beckons, somewhat overshadowed by the liquidation of Worcester Warriors and the termination of the contracts of staff working at the club. Some players have already moved to other clubs, but many remain without clubs and the financial situation at Wasps also remains of great concern. Harlequins will have no fixture this weekend, having been due to play the Warriors, and prior results featuring Worcester have been written off.
