Match report: BATH RUGBY 0 SARACENS 22

Charlie Hodgson produced a sublime performance at a rain-soaked Rec as Bath Rugby crashed to their heaviest defeat of the season against Saracens.

The visitors coped by far the better with the atrocious conditions, with the imperious Hodgson kicking 17 points to send the home side crashing back to earth with a bump following back-to-back Amlin Cup wins over Italian side Calvisano.

Head coach Gary Gold will be bitterly disappointed at how little his side offered during the match, with Bath's chances all but gone before half-time.

Both teams took time to settle in the face of the torrential rain but once Hodgson had his first sight of goal, it was all one-way traffic. The Sarries fly-half saw a drop-goal attempt from 30 metres drift wide but his long-range penalty three minutes later put the visitors ahead.
