One Pint
I feel Bath did not beat us, but we beat ourselves. When Mieres came off why did we decide to force the game and make stupid passes and decisions? We had opportunities to win this game, but we messed most of them up. Today we controlled the game but came up as losers. Why take off players when we are still in the game. The four points where there for the taking.

Were you actually watching the same game One Pint ???

There was a spell in the first half when we really did wonder why the hell Nacho kept choosing the option of kicking the ball straight down the middle ???
It was blatantly obvious, by the way he struck the ball, that Nacho had pulled something part way through the first half...surprised he wasn't replaced earlier ?

We thought the replacements worked very was an inch perfect pass from Steeno that released Matt Jess down the line in front of the Grandstand.
And the ball out from the rucks & scrums seemed to be a lot better (quicker) when Kevin Barrett came on !
James Philips made some big tackles when he came did Neil Clark. Rob used the bench to freshen things up & replace players that have taken a knock or are struggling....that is what the bench is there for !

Once again the Ref had an impact on how we played !
Rose was no where near as Bad as Doyle or Davey...he did at least keep up with play! But it certainly appeared that Bath seemed to get plenty of time to get the ball out at the break down....where as he seemed pretty quick to penalise the chiefs if the ball didn't get recycled immediately ?

That said, it was a scrappy game & pretty flat at times...& we made our share of mistakes !

It was a similar size crowd to the Tigers game....but nothing like the atmosphere !
