Let’s make it a Day to remember says Bath Rugby’s Dom

DOMDAY1005565SB

Fresh from one of their best performances in recent memory, Bath Rugby and Dom Day are desperate to make amends for one of their worst.

Despite kicking off their European Rugby Champions Cup campaign with a disappointing 37-10 defeat at Glasgow Warriors, Bath host the Scottish outfit this weekend knowing victory could see them clinch a spot in the last eight.

That is after Mike Ford’s men produced an eye-catching display last weekend to claim a bonus-point win at French giants Toulouse.

Matt Banahan, Chris Cook, Jonathan Joseph and Francois Louw each dotted down across the Channel and second row Day knows another team performance is necessary when Glasgow – also chasing a quarter-final spot – come to the Rec.

“It was brilliant,” said Day of the Toulouse clash. “We went out there and played some of our best rugby this season. We got a bonus point out there, which not many teams do.

“It’s up there with one of the best wins, just in terms of the rugby, that we played. We managed to put a lot of things together. We really took it to them.

“It’s only really half the job done. We are at home so that will be good for us. We are excited – it’s just another challenge and Glasgow are just the next team in the way.

“It (defeat in Glasgow) is one of the worst performances we have had this season but I don’t think our focus this weekend is revenge at all.

“It is just massive for the club, being able to pull it back when everyone thought we were down and out.”

As well as challenging right up at the top of the Aviva Premiership Rugby table, Day insists Bath are desperate to throw their name in the hat for European honours this season.

And, now in his third season in the West Country, the 29-year-old – who signed a new contract with the club this week – believes they have all the components necessary to clinch some silverware.

He added: “Performances are one thing but they mean nothing without going places and winning silverware, which is what we are all about at the moment.

“I am delighted to sign a new deal. For me it was an easy decision, looking at the squad we have got here and what is building.

“It is just a great place to be and a great bunch of lads. I really want to go out there and win something and to do it with these boys would be amazing.

“In the first year we put down the foundations,last year we were just a point off the Premiership play-offs and now we are firing on all cylinders.”
