Bath Rugby Ready for St George's Day Clash.

Bath Rugby head to Twickenham tomorrow full of the joys of spring, following a win against Northampton Saints on Tuesday night. Kick off, 5.30pm.
"There was a great buzz after the match," said Head Coach Steve Meehan about the game. "The mood just gets better and better.

"Once that final whistle went the energy was magnificent. There were a lot of smiles and slaps on the back. The guys are so intent on being as good as they possibly can, so there is an enormous amount of spirit and passion."

The match will not only mark St George's Day, but also a crucial moment in Bath's Guinness Premiership campaign.

"It's a game that we have to win if we want to keep our hopes alive," admitted Meehan. "We are all aware of it and the guys who start the match will know what responsibilities they have got.

"But, it's a great occasion and one that will certainly get the blood coursing through the veins – of that there is no doubt."

Danny Grewcock will be making his 200th appearance for the blue, black and white.
