Bath Rugby became the first side to not taste defeat at Sandy Park in the Aviva Premiership this season when they ground out a 12-12 draw against Exeter Chiefs last weekend.
But, despite that positive result, prop Paul James insists he and his team-mates have still got a long way to go to right the wrongs of the scarring loss to Saracens the week before.
Bath’s top-four aspirations took a massive knock in a 22-0 defeat at The Rec and the Welsh international forward has not yet forgotten that reversal. However, the 30-year-old believes the seeds of recovery were planted in their battling draw with the Chiefs in Devon.
“We were really disappointed the week before with how we played against Saracens so the way we fronted up against Exeter was very pleasing,” he said.
