Preview: Northampton Saints v Bath Rugby

The Saints have won only one of their last five encounters with Bath, whilst Bath’s solo victory against Northampton at Franklin’s Gardens in the Premiership was 17-13 on 22 April 2000, although Bath did win a Premiership game there against Saracens in November 2004.

Something has to give in this top of the table Aviva Premiership Rugby clash between the only two teams remaining with 100% winning starts to the season. Northampton Saints have never begun a Premiership season with three successive wins.

Franklin’s Gardens hosts only its 5th Friday night Premiership game, in which Saints have been defeated just once: against the Tigers in April 2006.

Bath Rugby have not started a season with three successive victories since 2003/04, whilst the last side other than Leicester to beat Bath in the Premiership was Northampton at Franklin’s Gardens last December.

Referee: Chris White (181st Premiership game)
