Rhys Priestland scored the winning points with the last kick of the game as Bath Rugby secured a bonus-point victory against top four rivals Northampton Saints at the Rec.
A further penalty try ensured Bath were in control at the break, although three penalties from Stephen Myler kept Saints just about in touch.
But Bath were not done yet and just minutes after missing a kick from wide on the right, Priestland scored the winning penalty to earn his side a vital five points.
It looked like being an easy night for the hosts as tries from Paul Grant and Semesa Rokoduguni on his 100th appearance for the club put Todd Blackadder’s side in command.
