Leicester Tigers vs Bath
ENGLAND: Premiership Rugby – Round 8
This insatiable Leicester Tigers side showed no signs of slowing their pursuit of the Premiership title after securing their biggest ever win last Saturday, 26-55 away at Northampton Saints.
The nature of their victory on the road and at a good Northampton side makes 8 from 8 look an almost certainty as they take on rock-bottom Bath at home this weekend. Absent international stars are likelier to hurt the struggling visitors more than their hosts in this ruthless form, especially as traveling Bath have lost 6 from 6 after a 17-27 defeat by Wasps last time out.
We do however feel that Bath have improved after Saracens thumped them a few weeks back and believe Cipriani will come out with a point to prove after his disappointing showing last time.
Bath team Points O/13.5 @ 1.8
