  • And most fittingly, the backline gets itself in a muddle, and the ball goes to deck. Less than a minute remaining, and it's a super second-half from Saints allayed by a wonderful display from Myler that has won the day.

  • Bath battling bravely though they are destined to finish as runners-up. Henson's hands making a difference in midfield, but they look tired.

  • Myler is human after all...he's missed his first kick of the night with three minutes to play. - See more at:

  • TRY, NORTHAMPTON SAINTS, FODEN! 16-30 Try given! Foden ripped the ball from his teammate and grounded the ball - just. That's the trophy for Saints.

  • ASTONISHING! What a breakout from Saints! Myler intercepts, doesn't have the pace to go from 80 metres, Pisi takes it on, Burrell is tap-tacked by Abendanon, gets to his feet, but gets wrapped up in the in-goal area. Does the ball get grounded?!

  • Bath playing some nice stuff in attack now, as they get up to the Saints 22. They need to score and score fast, and they have a penalty. Trailing by nine, they go for the corner.

  • CONVERSION, NORTHAMPTON SAINTS, MYLER! 16-25 An important kick to hand Saints a two-score lead, and Myler keeps up his perfect record. Great show of kicking from the pivot.

  • TRY, NORTHAMPTON SAINTS, DOWSON! 16-23 Is that the decisive score? Finally, the maul, the rolling, rumbling drive pays off, and Saints power their way over.

  • Penalty number three, and it's a yellow card for Perenise the substitute. He didn't roll away, and Garces has lost patience.

  • Oh, they've butchered it! Lovely hands down the short side, and Alex Waller spills the ball with the line beckoning. So near, yet so far. Still they have the penalty, and still they go for touch.

  • Well, well, well - Myler hasn't missed a kick all night, but from a kickable penalty, Saints go for the corner. What a statement. Can they back it up?

  • PENALTY, BATH, FORD! 16-18 A wave of relief washing over the youngster as he strikes it straight and true. Back to two points.

  • And that's not a bad start as they win a penalty straight from the kick-off. Gavin Henson is on, but Bath keep faith in Ford. He MUST slot this one after a difficult last 20 minutes.

  • PENALTY, NORTHAMPTON SAINTS, MYLER! 13-18 Bath have it all to do now with a little over 15 minutes remaining. Myler has stepped up to the plate tonight.

  • And another penalty for Saints! A scrum infringement hands Myler another fairly simple opportunity to extend the lead. They are turning the screw.

  • Oh's all going wrong at the back for Bath. It's Abendanon and Ford once again getting in each other's way under no pressure. Ball spilled, scrum Saints.

  • PENALTY, NORTHAMPTON SAINTS, MYLER! 13-15 He certainly does. Saints are in the driving seat.

  • Kahn Fotuali'i is on and he's made an instant impact with a great kick and chase downfield. Ford and Abendanon dither under pressure, they're swallowed up and there's a penalty under the posts for Saints. Myler will surely hand them the lead.

  • Really sloppy pass from George Pisi, under no pressure on his own 22, sending the ball into touch ahead of his brother. Saints pinch it back from the lineout, though, and they can clear away.
