Round 22 Preview: Sale Sharks v Bath Rugby

Round 22 Preview: Sale Sharks v Bath Rugby

Sale Sharks only victory in the last six rounds of Aviva Premiership Rugby was 36-26 at home to Worcester on 7 April. The Sharks have lost just one of their last six matches in all tournaments at AJ Bell Stadium: 12-32 to Northampton in round 17 of Premiership Rugby.

Bath Rugby must obtain a big victory to give themselves any hope of overhauling Leicester to reach the semi-finals. Bath have won just two of their last six Aviva Premiership Rugby encounters – against Leicester at Twickenham in round 19 and over Gloucester at the Recreation Ground last weekend. Bath have not won away from home in the competition since a visit to Exeter on 30 October.

Bath’s only defeat in their last five fixtures with Sale was 17-29 at AJ Bell Stadium in April 2016.
