Rugby U


Afternoon all, Northampton v Bath our offering from the Premiership today and I'm @RobSutton22

A game that has surprisingly little riding on with two rounds to go, after Sale's defeat last night, a Saints win confirms European rugby

Bath have been pretty hopeless all season, they have been 9th for 4 months and that's where they will finish the season

Here are today's teams then, George Ford rested for Bath, Priestland starts at 10

One other game this afternoon, Leicester v Worcester is already underway (0-0) a win for Tigers sees them take the final play off spot

Surprisingly subdued atmosphere at Franklins Gardens as the two teams take the field

Saints in their traditional green, black and yellow, Bath in blue, black and white. Wayne Barnes with the whistle, gets booed, classy

And we are underway....

Leicester 7-3 Worcester in the other game by the way as Bath lose Louw to the blood bin early

2- First scrum of the day sees Brookes pinged and Bath get a lineout just outside the 22. 0-0
