A dismayed Steve Meehan was left mystified by his players' lack of appetite for a physical encounter as Bath Rugby put up feeble resistance to Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens.
This Is Bath - Meehan: We're angry and upset with that performance
Sky Sports - Mallinder 'one of our best'
A message from Luke Watson via Twitter:
'That was terrible!! Sorry to all the Bath supporters. I'm very disappointed. It's going to be a long trip back home but we will bounce back!Credit to the Saints who were clinical and dangerous tonight. Well played. It's still very early in the comp. A lot of work to be done! Even though we got a bit of a hiding tonight, it's still such an honour and privilege to play for Bath! We WILL bounce back... Stronger!!'
Well said Luke, onwards and upwards...look out Sale! :)
