Bath United won the Aviva A-League on Monday night beating the Northampton Wanderers 29-20 at Franklin's Gardens.

Bath took the lead first with Tom Biggs profiting from slack Northampton defending to go over under the posts. And despite a Northampton penalty, it was Bath who stayed in the ascendancy with Gavin Henson collecting Nick Abendanon's pass to crash over in the corner. Bath extended their lead to 17-3 but Northampton came storming back with an effort from Howard Packman and a penalty try, against 14-man Bath, levelling the game at 17-17 at half-time.

Come the second 40, Charlie Beech scored first for Bath but Glenn Dickson chipped Northampton back to within four points of the away side. However, as Northampton chased the game, it was Bath who had the final say with Richard Lane profiting from good work from Tom Dunn to grab the last try of the match.
