Gallagher Premiership Rugby Week 5 Tips & Predictions: Bath v Saracens (Sunday, 15:00 BST)
Saracens will be looking to make it three wins from four matches since gaining promotion back to the Gallagher Premiership. They have played four matches this season, won two and lost one. They travel to the Recreation Ground to take on bottom club Bath. They have yet to win a single game and only have three bonus points to their name. Saracens have lost only one of their last four league matches – 12-13 at Leicester in Round 3. Bath’s only victory at the Recreation Ground in any competition since mid-April was 30-24 against Northampton on 12 June. The last three meetings between the two clubs have been shared with one win apiece plus a draw. Saracens won 25-12 on their most recent visit to Bath in November 2019 to end a three-game winning run by the home side at the venue. I am backing the Sarries to gain an away win and boost their hopes of a top-four finish. I think Bath will win a game soon, I just don’t think it will be on Sunday. Former England star Danny Cipriani will make his Bath debut, and I still don’t think it will be enough to grab that first win. Saracens welcome back Maro Itoje in the second row, while Owen Farrell captains the team at fly-half. I am backing the away team to put some points on Bath and win this by 13 or more points.
