Northampton v Bath live stream: How to watch from anywhere
The late kick-off on Wednesday in the Gallagher Premiership sees Northampton take on Bath. The sides sit 6th and 5th in the table respectively at the moment and both sides have 40 points. No doubt they will both have ambitions of chasing down the teams above them.
The last time the two sides met was back in November where Bath secured a 22-13 victory despite having Aled Brew sent-off in the 47th minute. Northampton themselves had two players sin-binned in what was a chippy affair.
Form-wise, Bath have resumed their season in great form as they have won their last two matches with bonus points whereas Northampton have won once and lost once.
Bath have lost just two of their last seven fixtures against the Saints in Premiership Rugby but their only victory at Franklin’s Gardens since April 2000 was 18-14 in September 2016.
Northampton: Ahsee Tuala, Tommy Freeman, Fraser Dingwall, Piers Francis, Taqele Naiyaravoro, Dan Biggar, Henry Taylor, Nick Auterac, James Fish, Owen Franks, David Ribbans, Api Ratuniyarawa, Courtney Lawes, JJ Tonks, Teimana Harrison (captain)
Replacements: Sam Matavesi, Francois van Wyk, Ehren Painter, Lewis Bean, Tui Uru, Tom James, Rory Hutchinson, Tom Collins
Bath: Tom de Glanville, Semesa Rokoduguni, Max Clark, Cameron Redpath, Gabriel Hamer-Webb, Josh Matavesi, Will Chudley, Beno Obano, Jack Walker, Christian Judge, Will Spencer, Elliott Stooke, Mike Williams, Josh Bayliss (captain), Zach Mercer
