RUGBY: Bath can absorb Barkley departure, says Gold

BATH head coach Gary Gold believes Bath have enough firepower in the squad to account for the loss of 30-year-old Barkley when he joins French club Racing Metro after next Saturday's home clash with Sale.

Barkley maintained his fine early-season form by kicking five penalties and converting Kyle Eastmond's try in the 29-22 defeat at London Irish yesterday - his penultimate match for the club before departing for France.

Gold said: "Stephen Donald is a World Cup-winning kicker, Sam Vesty is a kicker, Tom Heathcote is an outstanding talent and Jack Cuthbert can kick.
