Bath coach Meehan warns players to be prepared in January

Bath coach Steve Meehan has warned Toulouse that they should expect a hostile reception when the two teams meet again in January for the return clash in the Heineken Cup

Toulouse, the three time champions beat Bath when they were awarded a penalty with seven seconds left on the clock.

David Skrela took the penalty and the ball initially appeared to be going wide but curled in and gave Toulouse an 18-16 victory.

Just minutes before Bath were trailing Toulouse 15-11 and then Nick Abendanon scored a try but South African fly half Butch James falied to convert the try which would have eventually given Bath a draw.

Meehan however insists that it will be a different proposition for the French giants at the Recreation Ground in January.

“We will be better prepared when they come to the Rec and Toulouse will feel the full force of today.” Meehan told ERC Rugby.

“We came here to play. We scored two tries, put them under pressure and played the better rugby.

“I was very impressed with our defence and to keep Toulouse try-less was excellent.

“The players can be disappointed with the result but not the performance.”

“I was really proud of them.”
