Sale vs Bath Predictions


This is a top-of-the-table clash in the Rugby Premiership. Bath are two points off Sale but at home, it is difficult to look past the Sharks getting the result. I do, however, feel it will be very tight so I’m backing Bath to get inside the five-point handicap.

Head to Head


Sale did the double on Bath last season. At home Sale won 30-27 while away they were more convincing, winning 37-20.

Sale Form


Sale are in superb form coming into this round seven clash in the Rugby Premiership. They have won five of their six games to date, leaving them top of the table with 23 points.

The Sharks’ only defeat this season came when they rested a host of players in round three. They suffered a 43-0 defeat to Exeter. Since then, they have beaten Gloucester at home, Bristol away and last week saw off Newcastle 40-22 at home.

Sale Injuries & Team News


Sale will be keen to field their strongest side given that this is a top-of-the-table clash.

Bath Form


Bath are just two points off Sale at the top of the table. They have won four of their six games and are on 21 points. A win here will put them on top of the pile.

Bath began the season with two wins, then suffered two successive defeats, albeit within a score. They have bounced back though with two wins on the bounce.

Last weekend Bath narrowly beat Bristol 20-19 at home. It was another superb display by a side that has struggled for the last few seasons.

Bath Injuries & Team News


Bath should remain relatively unchanged, barring any injuries this week.

Verdict

I am backing Bath to get within five points of Sale.
