THE PREDICTION

Bath are finding form at just the right time as they have won their last three games and are in prime position for a top four spot. Their bonus-point win over Sale last time out was particularly impressive and they will be strengthened here even further with the return of Anthony Watson, Semesa Rokoduguni and Joe Cokanasiga to the side. They face Gloucester here and they will fancy their chances of a fourth win in a row although the visitors will test them. They have scrum-half Will Heinz back after injury and their motivation is a top-half finish. They may come unstuck here however and in a game that should be high-scoring at both ends of the pitch, the hosts are favoured to win by a double-digit margin.
