FOR one of the biggest games of the season, it is always welcome to have a bit of good fortune on your side.
And the Cherry and Whites will certainly be hoping that is the case when it comes to the psychic pig Star’s prediction of a home win against rivals Bath today.
Fortunately, when it comes to food, the porker is rarely proven wrong, nailing two-thirds of her predictions this season. And news of the forecast is certain to please boss Nigel Davies – who issued a rallying call to his wounded side ahead of what he called their “biggest” game of the season.
Gloucester are still seething following their quarter-final defeat to London Wasps in the Amlin Challenge Cup and the West Country derby is usually a heated affair, with tensions boiling over on the pitch.
But fans will be hoping Star’s prediction of a home win is proved correct, ending Bath’s three-game winning streak in the clash.
