Head Coach, Steve Tandy, commented:
 
"It's going to be another big afternoon for this group and another stern test for the youngsters in the squad. There's maybe a bit more experience in the 23 than last week, but we are still looking at a group of players who have to take the opportunity they are getting to show that the deserve to hold onto the jersey for the next few weeks while we are without our international representation and an injury list that is growing once again.

"We know what to expect from Bath. It's a great club with real history, and there's a sell out crowd for this game. Whatever team they send out we know that we will have to perform well as they have enviable strength in depth.

"For us it's about preparing well this week and going to the Rec focused on performance, knowing that we have to be clinical in everything we do, looking to take the momentum from the second half in Gloucester and building on it.

"We've got some crucial games coming up over the next five or six weeks that will shape how the end of season run-in plays out. These boys have a huge part to play in deciding our fate so they know there is pressure and expectation on their shoulders to ensure that they continue the good work done in the PRO12 to date, to keep us well placed in the play-off push. "
