“We would have loved for a bit more out of the Leicester game and we have been pretty hard on ourselves.

“But there has been lots of really quality learning moments from all the games.

“It is very much about the performances and the aspects of those which we believe are the building blocks of a strong Premiership team.” Quote Mr Hooper.

Am I reading this correctly? Was I watching the same game last Saturday? Conceeding tries for fun, tackles missed, surrender of ball in contact and poor handling, non existant driving maul, woeful kicking out of hand and still no effective chase (no one since Biggsy), crabbing across field with no go forward and hopeless leadership. Very much deja vue and what has been offer for the last few seasons.

Quote, 'there has been lots of really quality learning moments from all the games.' What? Where? Apart from letting the opposition dictate to us all the time. I am so glad our illustrious D of R thinks we are going in the right direction and learning all the time. Sounds familiar? Haven't we heard these mantras before?

Most think we are delusional when you compare the performances of every other team in the Premiership Cup. Some have even taken it seriously and have gained one over us by developing a winning habit, What is that like?

Also I see we using the Gloucester away game as a training field exercise, the trouble is Glos will be taking it seriously.

Glos by 30 plus points.

I can see the level of my alcohol intake will have to increase and, when in a total stupor, I can hallucinate about a Bath side ruling the league and winning things. Forget the Fever Tree, its neat Naval gin and gulps of Mount Gay interspersed with full bodied red wine and the occasional scrumpy. The availability in the depths of winter of Old Timer might help as well.
