Having topped the standings before Christmas, Sale's form fell off a cliff and they were languishing in 8th as recently as March. Five straight victories later, the Sharks are the Premiership's in-form team, and it's largely because of their final day victory over Saracens that Bath have home advantage today.

By some quirk of fate, it was Johann van Graan's men who inflicted Sale's last defeat, which came via a Finn ­Russell-orchestrated late show when the teams had been tied at 24 apiece. Last year's runners-up were on a miserable run at the time – it was their sixth straight loss – but they're in formidable shape now.

Gus Warr and George Ford have been at the heart of everything good, and their tactical duel with opposite numbers Russell and Ben Spencer will be where the game is won and lost. Northampton await in the final.
