Bath team to face Saints

After marking the start of a new era at Bath Rugby with a bonus point win against Sale, Head Coach Steve Meehan believes that the team are ready to win again when Northampton travel to The Rec. Kick off, 8pm.
"We were a little bit rusty against Sale but it was a good performance leading into tomorrow night and the match with Wasps at Twickenham on Saturday,” said Meehan.

"With a new owner coming in was a week that none of us have experienced before and there were some basic errors in the first 20 minutes I think as a result. But, the players got that out of their systems and then really played well.

"It was a great start for the new chairman and a nice way to send Andrew off."

Having sustained a mild ankle strain against Sale at the weekend, Butch James sits out the match against Northampton.
