Top plays bottom at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford on Sunday, when London Welsh host the reigning Champions, Northampton Saints in the Round 9 of the Aviva Premiership. It is difficult to make any sort of case for a Welsh victory, even though the Saints will we weakened by International call, as England and Wales don't finish their Autumn International series until this weekend.

The Exiles have played 12 matches in all tournaments this season, and have been beaten in everyone of those fixtures, in fact they have more often than not been thrashed, and not just defeated. Those dozen fixtures have seen Welsh cross their opponents line on just 13 times, while their own defence has been pierced on 69 occasions.

It isn't just current form that is against a Welsh victory, but also the history of matches between the two clubs. It is now 26 years since London Welsh beat the Saints in a competitive fixture, when they won 16-14 at Franklin's Gardens in the old Division Two. Saints have won five of their last six Premiership games, during which they have collected 24 points, their only defeat coming at home to currently second place Exeter Chiefs at the Gardens in Round 7.
