Having come away from the first v second fixture against Sarries with a win, focus now changes to the visit of third place Bath.  Bath are flying high given their lack of tries and this suggests they are pretty reliable off the tee.  As we know our tussles with Bath tend to be closely fought affairs and I can't see this weeks fixture following this patter.  Particularly as the Chiefs haven't really fired on all cylinders yet this season.  I'm sure that Rob Baxter will have been working with the players on starting the game with a bang as the last two performances have lacked early intensity.
