Bath United win the Aviva A League title

Neal Hatley hopes the momentum gathered from winning the Aviva A League final will benefit Bath ahead of a vital three weeks in the club's season.

Hatley's side were clinical in attack, scoring four tries through Tom Biggs, Gavin Henson, Charlie Beech and Richard Lane, while Tom Heathcote kicked nine points in a 29-20 victory over Northampton Wanderers at Franklin's Gardens.

The Wanderers, who trailed 17-3 at one point, responded through a Howard Packman score, a penalty try and ten points from the boot of Glenn Dickson, but it was not enough.

Northampton's Mike Haywood and Bath's Kane Palma-Newport were both sin-binned in the first half and Hatley believes the defensive display when down to 14 men proved to be the difference.

Rumoured Bath Rugby coaching target Steve McNamara to join Sydney Roosters

Rumoured Bath Rugby coaching target Steve McNamara has joined Australian NRL side Sydney Roosters, according to reports Down Under.

England rugby league boss McNamara had been linked with a position on Bath’s coaching staff in the wake of director of rugby Gary Gold’s departure earlier this week.

McNamara’s England contract expired after their semi-final exit to New Zealand at last month’s World Cup and he was rumoured to be weighing up a cross-code switch.

The 42-year-old is believed to have attended training sessions at Bath during the summer and is well known to head coach Mike Ford, himself a former rugby league player.

Gold sacked, McNamara in as attack coach!?

The strange move was heralded last summer, when he was distanced from direct team affairs at Bath with the promotion to head coach of Mike Ford, England’s defence coach at the 2011 World Cup and father of Bath’s fly-half George.

That was described as a “restructure”, as is this latest turn of events.

“The decision was taken following a restructure of the rugby department and with the best interests of both Gary and the club in mind,” said a Bath statement, that can be interpreted as meaning there was no room at the Rec for both Gold, 47, and Ford.

Steve McNamara, coach of the England rugby league side, is set to join them as attack coach.

"We found a way to win tough Exeter test," says Bath Rugby head coach Mike Ford

Head coach Mike Ford was delighted with Bath Rugby’s 21-16 Aviva Premiership win over local rivals Exeter Chiefs yesterday after seeing his side pushed to their absolute limits.

Exeter enjoyed prolonged periods of territory and possession at The Rec and crossed the whitewash twice, through second-rows Damian Welch and Dean Mumm.

All of Bath’s points came from the boot of fly-half George Ford, who kicked six from six from the tee as well as adding a drop goal.

Ford senior praised his side’s ability to find a way to win as third-placed Bath further enhanced their Premiership play-off credentials.

“It was a good game for the neutral but at times rugby doesn’t go all your way. You’ve got to tough it out and find a way to win – and we did that today,” said Ford.
