THE PREDICTION

Twickenham plays host to this Premiership clash between Bath and Wasps in what is a huge contest in the race for the play-offs. Fourth-placed Bath sit just a solitary point ahead of Wasps which makes this a potentially pivotal clash for both teams. Bath have won all three matches since the restart but Wasps were unable to match that record as they fell to a defeat against Sale Sharks last week. There is little to split the two teams and they appear to be evenly-matched but Bath have the momentum coming into this and can make it four wins in a row.
