Bath picked up a much-needed win over London Irish last weekend to put themselves within touching distance of the play-offs. This will be a much tougher test however against a Leicester Tigers side that are in something of a transition, but will have good motivation. The Tigers lost their first game under new head coach Steve Borthwick but they were some positives signs in the loss to Exeter last weekend. They will compete much better here and make it hard for Bath and while the visitors may get the win, expect it to be a narrow one in a relatively low-scoring game.
