Can only apologise to all supporters who watched today. We know that's not what a Bath jersey deserves. Thanks for your support

Hats off, dominated by a superior team today. Mujati and co supreme - we must take it on the chin and learn from them. Please stick with us.

Nick Abendanon
Sorry to all the supporters who came out to the Rec today. Simple inexcusable.

Duncan Bell

"We're sorry" say Bath Rugby coaches after Northampton humbling

Bath Rugby 6, Northampton Saints 26

First-team coach Martin Haag issued an apology to a sell-out crowd at The Rec after Bath Rugby were bullied and humiliated by Northampton Saints.

Ill-disciplined, uninventive, disjointed and out-gunned, Bath slumped to a second successive defeat in which their only return was two penalty goals.

I remember reading somewhere that the UK had more CCTV cameras per square mile than any other country. Now it looks like professional rugby clubs are going to help add to that tally – but in a good way.

Premiership Rugby, the umbrella group representing the English game's top-tier sides, is conducting an experiment to see whether television match officials should be installed at every game.

Battered Bath Rugby lose out to table-topping Harlequins in bruising Premiership clash

Harlequins 14, Bath Rugby 6

In a game in which the number of yellow cards equalled the number of try-scoring opportunities, Bath Rugby could leave The Stoop pondering how on earth they failed to earn at least a losing bonus point.

Harlequins didn't lead until the 64th minute in a bruising stop-start contest, and Bath could feel a sense of grievance at the final whistle.

Statement: The Real Friends of the Rec - Bath Rugby Purchase Lambridge

For members who have not already seen the announcement Bath Rugby have completed their purchase of the Lambridge Training Ground from Bath Football Club Trustees Ltd.

This is a significant step forward as it means that Bath Rugby could donate the Lambridge Ground to the Bath Recreation Ground Trust in order to alleviate the 'detriments' caused by Bath Rugby taking on a larger footprint on the Rec. This would bring to fruition the idea of a 'land swap' to resolve the long standing issues at the Rec that was first mooted at the RFOTR AGM in January 2009.

We are now awaiting the successful conclusion of the ongoing discussions between the Recreation Ground Trust and the Charity Commission.

These are roles that, with just a handful of matches every year, could be loafed through with minimum maintenance and a few nice holidays, courtesy of the RFU gravy train.

The last time these two sides met, Bath Rugby owner Bruce Craig was forced to witness a torrid display at Sixways – a display whose only crumb of comfort was that a replacement prop did a manful job filling in at second row.

But what a transformation. Bath may have been a bit stodgy in the opening ten minutes of Saturday's clash at The Rec but, after they had been slapped around the chops by Tom Arscott's try for Worcester, it was an afternoon of attacking panache and high-skill, high-tempo rugby.

Old Rivalries, Bath v Leicester Tigers, Friday, 9 March 2012

On Friday, 9 March, Bath Rugby will do battle with traditional rivals Leicester Tigers, to win a coveted place in the LV=Cup final. Games against the Tigers are always fierce encounters producing some gripping and gritty rugby from both sides. This game will be no different and the prospect of silverware will add further spice into the mix.

With a try bonus point in each LV=Cup game so far this season, Bath Rugby have scored 24 tries so far in the competition, with perhaps the pick of the bunch being Anthony Perenise's barnstorming 40 metre try against Northampton Saints.

Kicking off at 7:30pm, there are still tickets available for this crunch fixture.

David Flatman: Welcome back, Danny boy wonder – now get your head down and play

We have a remarkable habit in this country, whether we like it or not, for building up young rugby players before they are quite in a position to live up to their assumed hype. As a rookie dipping his chubby toe into the rough and unforgiving waters of rugby writing, I am as guilty as the next key-tapper. Only last week I was calling Owen Farrell's performance "stunning"; I appear to have been caught up in it all.
