David Flatman: Old-school tour but it'll be men at work in land Down Under

The first time I toured Australia with an England rugby team we had Lee Mears at hooker, Jonny Wilkinson at fly-half and Mike Tindall at centre, so presumably not much has changed. OK, so that was a schoolboy trip during which we spent our nights with local billets, not in five-star hotels, and we had no trouble staying under the radar. This one might be different.

The good, the bad and the ugly of the 2010 rugby season

Bath – for the way they rescued their season. Going into the Christmas period, Bath had won one of their opening 10 fixtures. They then lost only once, against Leicester at Welford Road, in their remaining 12 matches

Bristol's Tom Arscott to sign for Bath??

According to The Rugby Times this week we are in the race to sign Tom Arscott from Bristol. Leicester are apparently also after his signature.

Tom Arscott

Tom joined Bristol Rugby for 2007-8 from Plymouth Albion.
An England U19 international comfortable at wing or full back, he is the brother of Luke who was already at Bristol Rugby.

Tom made an immediate impression during the preseason friendly fixtures and featured frequently at first team level throughout 2007-8 scoring 9 tries in 19 starts and catching the eye of the England Saxons selectors until injury forced a late withdrawal.

This season he has played 27 games and scored 10 tries.

Jeremy Guscott tips Bath for the win!!

Leicester v Bath

I think Bath have got a much better chance of winning at Welford Road than they did when they were thrashed back in April.

When the two sides met in the Premiership regular season, Leicester ran out 43-20 winners, and the Tigers are always a good bet at home.

The difference between Sunday's game and the one back in April is that Bath have really kicked on over the past four or five weeks.

The confidence is back and they are playing some really good rugby, the forwards are off-loading and their backs are showing great ability.

Danny Grewcock and Luke Watson didn't play for Bath last time and they will make a difference. Waston's on fire, Grewcock brings experience and a lot of aggression, and Leicester will find it a lot harder in the forwards this time.

There is so much rivalry between the clubs, but it's been fairly quiet over the past few years, probably because Leicester have been so much more successful in recent times.

However, the memories of the fans are a lot longer than those of the players, so the atmosphere will be just like the old days.

Welford Road will be intimidating, ferocious and completely partisan and it will be a really tight affair.

Prediction: Bath by less than seven

Guinness Premiership Semi Final and Final Ticket Details

With the clock counting down to the Leeds game, destiny is very much in our own hands - quite simply if we win against Leeds on Saturday we will qualify for the Guinness Premiership semi finals.

TOM BRADSHAW: Jessica – an inspiration

Big screen gets the go-ahead

Bath Rugby will push ahead with plans to install a giant television screen on The Rec for the final game of the regular season on Saturday.

Free tickets are now available to watch the match against Leeds (3pm) played out on the large screen behind the East Stand.

As revealed in the Chronicle last week, the club is keen to use The Rec outfield as a spot where people who have missed out on match ticket can watch the game on a TV feed. The plan is to use the outfield for the screening of next season's home games too.

Match ticket-holders for the ground will not be able to access the area in front of the giant screen.

The club is bringing in additional refreshment units and toilets.

The weather forecast for Saturday is for showers – so supporters are being urged to come prepared.

Those aged 16 and under will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Tickets for the event are free from the ticket office in person or on 0844 448 1865 until Friday and then available on the day from the William Street Gate at the ground.

Flatman's return for Bath could be boost for England

England's great leaps forward in the Test arena have not been blindingly obvious this season – to most eyes, they have taken a series of small steps backwards – and their work in the scrum, the very foundation of their game, has been particularly unimpressive. This might be about to change, just in time for the build-up to next year's World Cup. The Bath prop David Flatman, last capped in 2002, has recovered from his latest injury hassle and is ready to challenge for a place on next month's five-match trip to Australia and New Zealand.
