    Unbelievable game:

    Bath 21 - 20 (11 - 8) Northampton

    Tries: Mears/Banahan (Bath), Diggin (Northampton)
    Penalties: Barkley x3 (Bath), Geraghty x5 (Northampton)
    Conversions: Barkley (Bath)

    Bath's playoff hopes well and truly alive, if we win at HQ against Wasps we should get that much closer. One of the most nerve-racking final 10 minutes in recent memory, fingernails well and truly gone.

    That leaves the table like this:

    By all accounts, a hell of a game considering it was essentially Saints 2nd string for the last 20 minutes or so - Even then the big-big guns were still mostly missing.

    Bath may well sneak themselves into the playoffs now with a sprinkling of some luck. Question is can their players survive 260 minutes of rugby in 7 days?
