DOG ON THE TYNE? NEWCASTLE v BATH

The bottom club have ambushed Bath several times in recent seasons and are particularly dogged at home, adept at hounding their opponents into error, especially in wintry conditions. Bath have improved steadily over the past few matches, but a week’s layoff, home advantage and international calls could tip the balance in the home team’s favour.
