Bath Rugby head coach Gary Gold 'astonished' by Euro away day

Head coach Gary Gold bemoaned the ERC's decision to alter the knockout stages of European competitions after Bath Rugby were handed a hazardous route to Amlin Cup glory.

Previous seasons have seen the top seeds from the pool stages rewarded with home ties in both the quarter-finals and semi-finals but a random draw for the last four was introduced this term.

Despite finishing as the top-ranked side, Bath will have to travel to France in the semi-finals – should they overcome Stade Francais at The Rec in the last eight – after Sunday's draw pitted them against the winners of the clash between Top 14 rivals Perpignan and Toulouse.
