Although London Wasps are without a win in any of their last four fixtures, since they defeated Zebre in Italy in the Champions Cup on January 22nd. However they go into Round 16 of the Aviva Premiership this weekend, when they will face the Cherry and Whites of Gloucester Rugby at the Ricoh Arena with a six point advantage at the top of the table.
The Coventry based club will be firm favourites to get back to winning ways on Sunday, despite having to field an under strength side die to the demands of the 6-Nations tournament on their squad, as they are currently enjoying a run of 14 straight wins at the Ricoh Arena in the Premiership. The last visitors to claim the points on a visit to the Ricoh in the tournament were Saracens, who were victorious at Christmas 2015. The Cherry and Whites have suffered just a single loss in their last seven fixtures, a heavy 9-34 defeat at the Leicester Tigers in Round 14 of the Premiership.

The Cherry and Whites of Gloucester have made a fine start to the season, with two wins from three fixtures, Even the defeat to reigning Champions Saracens, which came between wins over Newcastle and Worcester, was a game that went down to the wire, and could easily have ended in victory for the men from the West Country. On Sunday, they head to the Midlands to take on London Wasps at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. A club that has the edge over them in recent seasons, Gloucester have failed to beat the now Coventry based club since September 2012 in the Aviva Premiership. However, Wasps are struggling to find any consistency so far this season. They have suffered two defeats on the road against Harlequins and Leicester Tigers, sandwiched in between came a narrow home win against Bath.
The records of the two clubs over the first three rounds of the tournament, suggest that there will be no feast of running rugby on Sunday. Gloucester have the equal worst try scoring record in the tournament, with just four to their name. Gloucester Rugby have managed just one more however, but have kicked sufficient penalties to climb to fifth position in the table.

Wasps will look to defend their 100% winning record in the Aviva Premiership at their new Ricoh Arena home, when they face the Cherry and Whites of Gloucester Rugby on Sunday. Since moving to Coventry, Wasps have won all three Premiership games at the venue, scoring a massive 13 tries while conceding just 2, but have shown some indifferent form away from home, and as result they find themselves in seventh place in the table, although they are still very much in the hunt for both a post-season play-off spot, and automatic qualification for next season's Champions Cup.
Gloucester who are just one place behind London Wasps, but eight points adrift, there only realistic chance of glory remains in the European Challenge Cup. However, the West Country club are on a run of form that has seen them defeated just once in their last eight games in all competitions, and they will provide their hosts with a stiff challenge. Wasps have had the advantage in recent clashes between the clubs, with Wasps winning just one of the last six fixtures between the two, an Anglo-Welsh Cup match at Kingsholm in February 2014. The match on Sunday will be Gloucester's second visit to the Ricoh, having beaten Newport Gwent Dragons in an Anglo-Welsh Semi-Final back in 2009.

London Wasps and Gloucester Rugby will clash before a bumper crowd at Twickenham on Saturday, with the carrot of a possible play off place for qualification to next season's European Cup at stake. Exeter Chiefs currently sit in seventh place in the Aviva Premiership table, which would provide the play-off match against a Top 14 side from France. But they hold just a one point and three point advantage over Wasps and Gloucester respectively.
Wasps are in the middle of a slump that has seen them win just one of their last seven Premiership matches, a narrow 13-11 success against the Worcester Warriors, who are the bottom of the table. Twickenham, which hosts Saturday's clash, has not been a happy hunting ground for Wasps in recent times. They have won just once at the venue in their last six visits, a 20-15 success against Saracens in the London double-header in 2011. Gloucester have not fared any better at Twickenham. Since beating Northampton Saints there in the final of the Powered Cup in April 2003, they have played four times at the venue, and have lost on each occasion. The two clubs have met three times this season in all tournaments, with London Wasps having won twice, and Gloucester once.
