Heineken Cup Winner
Those developments include a new training centre and headquarters 20 minutes south of the city, on the site of a country house and deer park, and a new ground by 2015. Three sites for the new stadium have been identified but it is understood that Bath city council has warmed to Craig's commitment to the club and that building a 25,000-seater stadium at the existing Recreation Ground site is the favoured and most likely option.
"It's our preference, it's everyone's preference," said Craig. "The Rec is the spiritual home of the club."
Craig also gave a strong indication that he was against freezing Premier Rugby's wage cap at £4m.

It has set its sights on playing in its new facilities by 2015 – but insists its current Rec home remains a viable, credible option to host the arena.
A cause of far greater immediate misery for the British rugby fan is the manner in which European national sides are being contemptuously masticated by the sharp-fanged beast that is Southern Hemisphere rugby. We're being mauled and munched to pieces, with the coaches of the northern sides having plenty of bones to pick over this week.

In the final edition of the Rugby Times this season a few interesting reports stand out.
The Rugby Times believe that Butch James wants to go back to SA and maybe join the Lions? Therefore Bath Rugby will be holding out for £200K compensation and will play Sam Vesty at fly half next season.
Due to the 'issues' at Bristol, Nicky Little will not be joining them for next season and it looks like he might be off to Italy.

South Africa are strenuously resisting attempts by Premier Rugby to have Butch James withdrawn from the Springboks' Test against Wales on Saturday because the game falls just outside the International Rugby Board’s official June window for international rugby.
SARU lawyers decided to examine the small print of James’ contract with Bath and stumbled on what they believe to be a loophole which does allow him to play after all.
"Sadly the club didn't receive the letter from Saru [the South African Rugby Union], sent on 20 April, asking for Butch to play, so the issue has only quite recently come to our attention and we have sought clarification from the IRB as Saru were under the impression this weekend was within the agreed window.
"The first weekend in June is designated for rest and travel and not for matches, this is based primarily upon player welfare needs, to enable them to recuperate after the end of the season and before the summer internationals, which take place on the three subsequent weekends in June.
"It is very unfortunate for Butch, who is very keen to play for his country again, and we are fully supportive of this, but it does need to be within the internationally agreed parameters.
"We hope that he will get his chance next weekend and have explained the situation fully to him this evening [Tuesday] on the phone and apologised for the inconvenience and disappointment he has suffered."
