    The mother of all games this weekend. ^_^

    By the way it's not being played at the Memorial Ground, it's at Ashton gate.

    I'm suprised Sky aren't showing this one.

    Very strong Bath pack!

    That is one strong Bath squad...

    Such a shame Butch James is Injured, because I would quite happily say that it was their strongest possible squad...

    Bristol and Bath always have good Derbies and Bath will want the win to keep up the pace on the top two...

    <div align="center">Bath then embellished the scoreline through Higgins' try and Barkley's additional two points, which confirmed Bristol's first home league defeat in almost six months.

    This was a HUGE win for Bath, with a game in hand on Leicester and Gloucester, we could see Bath go top of the league in the next couple of weeks...

    Fantastic result...

    Bath are looking good at the moment - solid win today and great performance from Barkley.

    To be honest I didn't think either team looked good, I is not a happy bunny at the moment for one reason or t'other - well done Barf anyway (bet it's good to get a win at Ashton finally). B)
