Fixture News Match Day Guide - Bath v Saints
Friday evening sees the Saints head to Bath with a chance of converting their Aviva Premiership semi-final in a Gardens one. Here’s all you need to know as third host second at the Rec.
VENUE The Recreation Ground
KICK OFF 7:45pm
TV Live on BT Sport, with text commentary at www.saintslive.co.uk
ACTION PREVIEW This could be the first of three May meetings between Bath and the Saints, the two sides already confirmed to clash in the Amlin Challenge Cup final and potential Premiership last knockout opponents, too.
It’s not an easy one to call on paper, either. Bath are on a run of four straight wins and their own playoff place is at stake, with victory securing Mike Ford’s men a top four spot for the first time since 2010.
And while the Saints have lost each of their last two away fixtures in the Premiership, the last time they were bettered for a trio of road trips was three years ago. They’ve also beaten the men from the Rec on each of their last five league meetings, including two trips to the West Country.
