Northampton Saints slipped up 20-32 at Sale last weekend but have not lost successive Guinness Premiership matches since last November-December. The Saints have lost two of their last three games at Franklin's Gardens but at least won 25-23 against Newcastle there on 3 September. Bath's 43-25 win against Leicester at the Rec on Saturday was their biggest ever Premiership victory over their old rivals. Bath have lost their last three away games at Northampton, Sale and Gloucester. Northampton have taken five of the last six meetings against Bath, whilst Bath have not beaten the Saints at Franklin's Gardens since 22 April 2000. This is a toughie to choose, as both sides are strong, I could see this going to the home advantage for Northampton, but as I am a biased Bath fan I am going to go with my heart and say Bath by 6 points.
