I must have missed Gloucester sitting at the top of the table playing an exciting and unbeatable brand of rugby.
I hope the team aren't as pessimistic as some on this board otherwise they may as well roll over and let Gloucester tickle our bellies.
Gloucester are one place above us and have only won one away game all season.
Yes, we'll have to play well, but I hardly think we need our best team or for every player to play their best. We'll need to be careful not to give their danger runners rooms to run and we'll need to give Burns a torrid time, but I'm sure the team and analysts have studied the tapes of Gloucester and of our own play and will adjust accordingly.
And as Annie says - it's a derby. Form can often count for very little.
I shall cheer Bath on as always, believing as always that we have the ability to beat the opposition.
