Defending Aviva Premiership Rugby champions, Saracens, have made the perfect start to their defence with two bonus point victories – only Harlequins in 2012 and themselves in 2013 and have begun their campaigns with 15 league points after three rounds.
Northampton Saints lost at home to Bath in round 1 of Aviva Premiership Rugby but rebounded with a bonus point victory at Bristol on Sunday. The Saints have won their last two away games but have not won three in a row on the road since December 2014.
The last three encounters between the two clubs have actually been won by the away side on the day, whilst Northampton are the only visiting side to have won more than once at Allianz Park – doing so on three separate occasions.
