Cardiff are yet to play in 2013, but start with a gentle introduction in the form of a midweek fixture against a dismal Royals side.
Whilst these two sides are close in record, I can see Cardiff running away with this as they make their late season charge for a winning record. Worcester looked like they were improving, but conceding 118 points without reply in their last two games suggests that this one could get ugly.

Aberystwyth Tarannau (3-1) vs. Gloucestershire Gladiators (3-2)
Aberystwyth continued their strong run of form with a win over Bath Spa last week, and now sit with a handsome 3-1 record. Gloucestershire slipped back to 3-2 with a narrow, but not entirely unexpected loss to Exeter.
A couple of Aberystwyth players used some choice words to describe our predictions last week – well, when we pick you to lose you tend to win, so don’t complain too much. We would however like to point out that other teams who have criticised predictions in the past have gone on to lose, so be careful!
All this aside, we feel that Gloucestershire are the superior side here, and will take the edge in a well-fought contest.
