Northampton Saints only win in the first three rounds of Aviva Premiership Rugby was 32-10 at Bristol in round 2. The Saints have lost two of their last three matches at Franklin’s Gardens, to Leicester in round 20 and to Bath in round 1.
Wasps have dropped only one possible league point so far this season, in the opening round 25-20 victory over Exeter at Ricoh Arena – ending on three tries. The only other occasion that Wasps won their first three games of a new Premiership Rugby season was in 2009/10, where they lost at London Irish in round 4.
