Bath v Sale stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Both teams won at home against each other during the regular season, Sale triumphing 11-9 at the AJ Bell before Bath won 42-24 at the Rec.

The Sharks did win on their penultimate visit to the ground, triumphing 37-20 back in September 2022.

Sale have won their last two away games at Newcastle and Saracens, but Bath have been brilliant at home of late.

As well as beating Saints on the final day (43-12) - albeit a second string - they have also triumphed against the likes of Racing 92, Harlequins and Exeter, with their sole Premiership defeats coming to Leicester (25-24) in October and Saracens (15-12) in April.

History is also against the Sharks as no side that has finished third in the final standings has ever been crowned champions, while no team that have occupied that spot has reached the final since 2010.
