Bath aiming for more Euro silverware

Bath and England full back Nick Abendanon still cherishes the day he got his hands on the Amlin Challenge Cup - and he wants to do it again.

Five years on and he believes the west country club are rounding into the kind of form that could see them challenge for a third major European title when they lunch their 2013/14 Pool 2 campaign in France against Bordeaux-Begles on Sunday, 12 October.

Bath took 29 out of a possible 30 points in their Pool matches last year before bowing out in the quarter-finals to Stade Francais Paris, 36-20 at The Recreation Ground. If that was a tough day at the office for the home side, it was also a lesson learned.
