Before your eyes is a softly spoken, naturally modest and mild-mannered bloke, who is a fraction absent-minded. But in your mind is the flaxen-haired whirling dervish of the rugby pitch, the terror of fly-halves the world over.

Last night after lots of different discussions with fans on twitter, Luke Watson sign off with this 'tweet':
"Thanks for the great feedback and discussions today. I love learning from each other! Tomorrow we might chat about leadership.... night ;)"
Read into this what you want but my gut feeling is Luke Watson will be named Bath Rugby captain today and that would be brilliant news!

New signing Sam Vesty says his "juices are flowing" at the prospect of playing Bath Rugby's expansive game.
Vesty left Leicester Tigers over the summer after eight years. As he left his hometown club, Leicester captain Geordan Murphy joshingly called him 'posh' for heading to Bath – but the 28-year-old is convinced he has made the right move.
The money ploughed into Bath Rugby by new chairman Bruce Craig means the players and coaches have a "massive responsibility" to perform on the pitch, admits assistant coach Brad Davis.
The absolute conviction of one's impending success is the mentality that every professional sportsman strives to attain before he hears the starter's gun, the first whistle or before the lights turn to green.

Quote - Malco(13th July): He is leaving Montpellier because of club politics and has told his agent that he would love to come to Bath. His agent has been in touch with Bath but they haven't had a definitive response yet. He essentially seems to be saying "please come and get me"!
Quote - Malco (14th July): I have received another message from Jacques this morning. He says he doesn't want lots of money, he just wants to play rugby. He loves Bath and played here in the challenge cup in 2006/2007. He has great respect for Smee and for Bendy, who he played against at u21 level. He is essentially saying "come and get me", but also seems to be saying that he doesn't have much faith in his agent
Heres a video of Jacques Boussuge in action:
