Wasps have lost just once in Aviva Premiership Rugby since round 8: 28-34 at Sale on 19 February. Wasps have won their last 16 Premiership Rugby matches at Ricoh Arena since Saracens bet them there on 27 December 2015, a run which has also seen them obtain twelve maximum point victories.
Northampton Saints have gained just two victories in the last five rounds of Premiership Rugby, at home to Worcester and at Sale in their most recent away game – Saints have not won successive away games in Premiership Rugby in the same season since 2014/15.
Wasps have won their last three matches against Northampton (two of those at Franklin’s Gardens). The Saints have lost on all three previous visits to Ricoh Arena, against Wasps in the semi-final of the European Cup in 2007, against Cardiff Blues in the semi-final of the Anglo-Welsh cup in 2009 and versus Wasps in round 19 of Aviva Premiership Rugby last season
