Bath hooker Pieter Dixon says the team want to win the Aviva Premiership title for stricken colleague Olly Barkley.
The England inside centre suffered a double leg fracture in Saturday’s 34-22 defeat to Gloucester, having previously broken the same leg before the 2009-10 season, and now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
After having his leg pinned, Barkley is currently undergoing treatment at the CircleBath Hospital in Peasedown and has been letting fans know of his progress via Twitter.
He tweeted: “Would just like to say again, thank you for an overwhelming amount of support from not only Bath and Glos but the whole Prem. Means a lot.
