"On Friday evening we welcome Bath to the AJ Bell Stadium."
"Games between the clubs are well contested and we are looking forward to the game.After the defeat to Northampton last Friday I said in the press conference that it was pleasing to see that the players didn't put the cue back in the rack, but battled to the end and were rewarded when Marc Jones scored in the final minute."
"We had a few injuries going into the game at Northampton but they were the better side on the night and deserved their win. We made a couple of field position errors in the first half and they capitalised on it. At 19-0 it didn't look good but when Mark Cueto scored just before half time we thought we could salvage something from the game."
"The first fifteen minutes of the second half saw us play some good rugby but an error let the home side in again. We have got to take the positives from the game though. Overall we didn't let ourselves down but there is a lot to work on."
"I said earlier in the season that the Aviva Premiership is now the toughest league of all where any team in the division, can, on their day beat any of the others. Saracens are early front runners but have Northampton and Leicester hot on their heels with Bath not far behind. We are looking to finish as high as possible in the table."
