Tip Wasps RFC - Northampton Rugby FC Saints

Northampton Saints are second in the Rugby Premiership, a point behind leaders Exeter Chiefs. They are not at their best on their travels though and will look to get a win away at tenth placed Wasps. The Saints have won five of their seven league games this season but both of those defeats have been away from home. Their only away win has come at Saracens but since then they have lost to both Sale and Bath who are in the top six. Northampton beat fourth placed Gloucester at home last week but know if they are to win the league, their away performances have to improve.

This trip to Wasps presents them with a good opportunity to get their second away win of the season. Wasps have 11 points this season and that's 12 less than their opponents.  They won at Bristol in their last match but those opponents were losing their third game in a row. Wasps have already lost five league games this season with just two victories. Before the win over Bristol, Wasps had lost three games in a row. Two of their three home league matches have ended in defeat and another one looks likely here. The tip is for a Northampton victory.

Conclusion Wasps RFC - Northampton Rugby FC Saints

Northampton need to improve their away record and this is a good chance to do just that. They are second in the table but that's mainly due to the fact they have won all four of their home matches.

They won last week but against an out-of-form team. Go for Northampton to win this match.
