Bath aim to keep their focus against Northampton

Bath Rugby have played some nail-biting rugby recently and although they have managed to secure the wins, they will be looking to keep their sights firmly set on target for the clash against Northampton Saints tomorrow.


Kick off is at 2.15pm.


“What matters at the moment,” said Head Coach, Steve Meehan, “is that without being in the best of form, we are still winning our games.


“That is very important. It is a very long season and there will be times when you are going to be in tremendous form and there will be times when things aren’t going to go exactly your way – but that is just the nature of the sport.”

With a win against Sale at home and just hours away from hosting another match, the victory, albeit in the dying seconds, gives Bath the extra impetus to grasp some more points.

“The win against Sale has given us more focus,” admitted Meehan.

“We were not up to our best and we didn’t find simple solutions to get out of our own half. We had looked at that throughout the course of the week leading to Sale, and we spoke again about it at half time and still never actually delivered on it. What we want in these next few matches to come is for people to see a much more controlled performance from us.”
