Rugby Union: 3 best bets for Bath v Northampton
It’s an all-English affair in Cardiff as previous winners Northampton and Bath clash in the Amlin Challenge Cup final and Ladbrokes News has three of the best bets for tonight’s rugby union action at Cardiff Arms Park.
The Saints will try to end their four-year wait for a major trophy and we are backing them to do just that against Bath at Cardiff Arms Park.
Northampton, who face Saracens next week in the Aviva Premiership final have enjoyed an excellent record against Bath in the league in recent years, going unbeaten in their last six clashes.
Before the two sides played out a draw earlier this month, Saints had won their previous five league encounters with Mike Ford’s side and we believe Jim Mallinder’s side can transform that form into European competition.
In Europe in recent years it has been quite rare to see a side run away with a final especially in the Amlin Challenege Cup with three of the last four ending with a winning margin less than 10 points.
Tonight promises to be another tight affair and with our previous selection in mind and the fact Northampton and Bath played out a 19-19 draw at the Rec just three weeks ago, backing the Saints to win by 1-10 points at 7/4 looks a good option.
The Bath full-back makes his last appearance for the West Country club in tonight’s Amlin Challenge Cup final and the former England international is looking to go out with a bang.
The 27-year-old started his career with a win in this competition back in 2008 and he is hopeful of signing his career off at the Rec with another winner’s medal.
Whether or not he gets the perfect ending he craves with silverware we are backing him to cross the line at any time and score in his final Bath appearance.
