I keep thinking back to Staurt Barnes' comments a few weeks ago about Bath being overcoached. I never saw Claassens play like that under Meehan. If we are going to kick the ball away, why stand at the base of the ruck for 2 mins before doing so? It just makes no sense. Maybe we have ended up with Meehan's players trying to play McGeechan's game, which clearly hasn't worked. Another point is leadership. I know we always have a go at Borthwik on here, but we miss him. When Glos gave away a pen under their posts after Ollie's run, we should have had our captain in Barnes' ear asking why no yellow, or at least making a point. All negatives for me, except for Ollie Woodburn who is becoming a top player.
