Can we dream Bath v Glaws match preview


By Mr Frivilous
September 16 2020

By several quirks of fate, its just over two years since our friends from Gloucester last came to visit us at the Rec

A thrilling 31-31 draw with Bath old boy Matt Banahan scoring in the dying minutes to deny Bath a stunning comeback win from a 7-21 deficit at half time. It’s sad but necessary that this fixture will be played behind closed doors. 

There has been a lot of water under the Castle Grim drawbridge since then with changes in leadership, patchy form since the restart, out of the race for the top four and a particularly poor result against Quins last weekend. There’s not much motivation left for climbing the table as the last golden ticket to the Heineken Cup seems virtually assured for Gloucester in eighth place, nine points clear of Worcester with two games to go. Quite the reverse for Bath, a lofty third in the table, a stunning win at Sale last time out and needing a bonus point win to keep in the race for the top four should be enough incentive for Bath. 

Both teams not competing in European fixtures this weekend means plenty of rest until Tuesday’s clash, welcome relief after a hectic schedule and time for the coaches and the sports psychologists to do their stuff and ponder over team selections. 

For Bath it will be the strongest team possible with perhaps the conundrum of who to starts at half backs, Ben Spencer has been playing like a man possessed and Rhys Powlesland increasingly effective. It’s tempting to start Will Chudley and Josh Matavesi with Ben and Rhys on the bench to keep the half back options fresh for Saracens. One’s thing for sure If Danny Cipriani is playing at 10 facing Josh expect plenty of passing and kicking rather than running down Josh’s channel. 

For Gloucester who knows? A potentially easier fixture next up after Bath, at home to Northampton for that last point to secure eighth so it could be the second string, given ninth placed Worcester face Saracens and Sale they are highly unlikely to score the ten points they need to climb into eighth assuming Gloucester remain pointless. Or maybe spoiling Bath’s party will be enough incentive to field the first choice? 

This could be a close-run thing if Gloucester select a motivated first XV but hopefully the Hats and Hoops masterplan produces a Bath five pointer, not just for bragging rights but dare we dream for a place in the semi-finals?

If everyone is fit what team to you go for? Sure there may be an element of horses for courses but i think my squad would be as per below but some really tough calls esp in the second row and back row.

Watson
Roko
JJ
Redpath
RMc
Rhys
Spencer

Obano
Dunn
Stuart
Mcnally
Ewels
Ellis
Underhill
Faletau

Bench: boyce, walker, judge, stooke, bayliss, chudley, matavesi, tdg

Exceptionally tough on some players, for example w spencer, mercer, reid.

Lack of injuries currently does mean we are spoilt for choice in a few positions.

Ineresting to see if we get a sight of coko before the end of the season.

Bayliss or Ellis is a tricky one. Really like Ellis's attitude and he brings good physicality which could be important against Polledri but with the new rules then I think you need 2 mobile flankers like Bayliss and Underhill to prevent turnovers and penalties.

Have to say our 2nd Rows are seriously playing since lockdown - thought Charlie was exceptional against Sale, McNally always gives 120% (may be time to give him a rest) - Thought Will Spencer was really impressive when he came on and Stooke as he has for the past 2 or 3 seasons for me has been outstanding. I thought the only ones which is understandable looked rusty were Batty and Thomas.

Again I would throw Mike Williams into the mix - he offers a counter to Polledri and is a real enforcer when it comes to the tight.

I would not be surprised to see Underhill, TF or ZM, Williams/Ellis - for me that is a better balance than playing 2 opensides and an 8 and I felt this showed on Sunday when Josh suffered his head knock - we appeared a lot better balanced with the arrival of Ellis...It also improves our Lineout with Williams or Ellis.

We need the same aggressive defence as shown at Sale - we cannot afford to give Cipriani or that Glos backline an inch of room to use their pace.

If all fit I would go for a team such as:

Watson
Roko
JJ
Josh M
RM

RP
BS

Obano
Dunn
Stuart
Ewels
Spencer
Williams/Ellis
Zach M
Underhill

Reps - Boyce, Walker, Judge/Schuman, Stooke, Toby F, Chudley, Joe C (if fit), Tom De G

Sometimes need to be pragmatic and consider the opposition but personally prefer when squads are selected on own terms. I would initially pick a massive pack and see how we get on in terms of trying to grind them into the dirt (and hope we react better than against wasps if it isn't happening for whatever reason).

I loved it when the AB's picked barrett at 6-absolute admission they were worried by England's power.

Guess with a 9 day turnaround his chances are improved but agree it would be crazy to take any risks, esp when you consider the options available.

Shows the progress of bayliss over the last year or so that many of us would have him in the 23 over the likes of williams, ellis, mercer. Reid looks to the manner born esp when you think he was out for several mths with his acl.

Based on game stats, I would go Faletau to start to keep the beefy pressure and tight aggressive defence with Mercer on bench to come on with 20 to go with opposition tiring, especially if one or two tries needed for bonus point or simply to win the game

I think that Hoops has about 35 players fit who are all pretty interchangeable and that for this game Ellis and TF are the beef to keep control of Polledri and Ackerman. Reid is more versatile than Zach, for me is an 8 pure and simple. Not sure there is anything sinister about it.

In relation to Will Spencer I'm sure he is just off trying to get is nose back into nose shape after the other week.

I think the problem for Zac is that he's starting to falli between 3 stools. Hes not big enough for a carrying 8, he's not a jackallimg 7 and he's not an "unseen work" 6. The problem is working out how to use him effectively and he's a lot like Tom Croft in this regard. I wonder how he'd go at 12?

Tom Ellis has had a relatively light workload so far this season, and it could be that this is very much a horses for courses back-row - as others have said above, to do with countering the physicality of Polledri. But if Zach's fit, I can't imagine he'd be happy to not be on the bench.

dr.bath1865
dr.bath1865
21/09/2020 18:57
How do we know Zach's unhappy?

Sure, he didn't want to take a pay cut/perhaps wanted more opportunities so made hard work of renegotiating. But then he signed his contract, fully in the knowledge that the Lions No 8 was at the club and that there were more versatile back rowers who could fill the bench slots.

More likely, Faletau has found some form in a team that keeps winning so is getting picked and Zach hasn't had his best few games so is working hard off the field to try and win back the shirt. Start of next season the 8 shirt is Zach's for the first 6-8 weeks so he'll get plenty of rugby.

It'd be a helluva shame to lose him, but if he chose to leave because of the above stated situation then I'd be inclined to say 'good riddance'. But, again, there's no evidence he's unhappy let alone going anywhere, let alone to inside centre!

Bath failing to retain Zach Mercer would be crazy, he's a superb player and leader. He's been topping the charts with meters made and defenders beaten. If the club are serious about having home grown talent at the heart of the team why would you let a player as good as Zach go? Surely retaining him must take priority over a superstar, even someone as good as Taulupe Faletau.
To my mind he's a player to build the team around.

I agree hamptonite.

No idea if he is injured but if not then i think the others have just earnt the jerseys since restart whilst zac has been a bit hit and miss.

I agree that zac is more of an out and out 8 whereas bayliss and reid look more adaptable playing across the positions which marks them out as great bench options.

Zac is class and is a major asset but so too are faletau, underhill, ellis, reid, and bayliss. It has been an extremely rare luxury for us to most fit for most games since restart...has often been last 4 standing make the 23 in the past.

Hopefully we can keep them all happy, will certainly all get plenty of game time.

Or for this game Cameron Redpath divided by Sam Underhill.

Ollie Fox - England U20 international scrum half, youngest of our four 9's. If you are good enough, you're old enough!

How do we know Zach's unhappy?

We donít. Or I certainly donít. Nothing more than a bit of speculation mixed with a sprig of hypothesis and a pinch of conjecture.

There will be more concrete things to talk about this time tomorrow.

Great team and bench. Redpath, Cokosigna to come on later is useful. Strong front row to come on and McNally. Strength and depth, bar fly half but great.
Love Mercer, gives something different and young still.
Wouldn't mind know what has happened. Ellis good line out option, full of energy and disrupting fast ball.
