    Bath will look to continue their recent improvement at home to Leicester and Nick Abendanon returns at full-back.

    Leicester's international trio Julian White, Lewis Moody and Aaron Mauger all make their first starts of the season for the trip to the Recreation Ground.

    Richard Blaze and Jordan Crane also return and James Grindal makes his first appearance since re-signing.

    Bath: Abendanon, Maddock, Banahan, Hape, Cuthbert, Little, Claassens (capt), Barnes, Mears, Bell, Short, Grewcock, Faamatuainu, Salvi, Skirving.
    Replacements: Dixon, Flatman, Jarvis, Hooper, Beattie, Bemand, Davis, Stephenson.

    Leicester: Murphy (capt), Hamilton, Allen, Mauger, Murphy, Staunton, Grindal, Ayerza, Davies, White, Blaze, Kay, Newby, Moody, Crane.

    Dan Hipkiss scores a try in the 74th minute and Jeremy Staunton converts to make it Bath 17 - Leicester 20

    EDIT:
    Little converts the penalty kick, 20 all now, 77mins

    Good. The less wins the former club of that smug, pompous oaf Stuart Barnes have, the better.

    1 near end before try was a bad kick lucky for him Patterson topped that off with an even worst kick :lol: :lol: :lol:
     
  13. Thought that for Bath Salvi, Grewcock, Bell, Little and Hape all had good games, and Flatman once again showed just how good a scrummager he is and WHY he should be in the England set-up ahead of **** like Payne. Cuthbert did superbly under the high ball but needs to have more of an impact going forward (though i'm sure that will come). Banahan had a good game first half but doesn't seem to know how to go wide, second half he faded. Claassens dictated things well and Jonny F is definately improving.

    We certainly looked back to our old selves - outperforming the opposition for 60 mins but coming unstuck in the last twenty. Still, plenty of positives.

    For Leicester, Moody was back to his old self and Allen should have been sent off. Grindall and Staunton were poor. They're not playing well, but they're winning.

    Staunton could have won the game for leicester but he fluffed it up.

    Good to see bath improving, but still along way to go for us.
