Jeremy Guscott's Aviva Premiership predictions

Bath v Sale

Bath made too many basic mistakes against Northampton last week and were further punished with a yellow card early in the second half, which contributed to their defeat.

In contrast Sale benefited from a couple of yellows against Harlequins last week and fought back well to win a game they looked like losing.

The Sharks haven't been great on the road and Bath have done very well at home, and I expect Bath to bounce back from their disappointment at Saints with victory.

However, with players like past and present England stars Ben Cohen, Mark Cueto and Andrew Sheridan, plus promising youngster James Gaskell, Sale won't be a pushover.

Prediction: Bath to win by more than seven.
