I bet London Irish or Bristol would get more out of Chudley-Priestland-Roberts than we do.

Really, what can you coach to a 31 year old, a 32 year old and a 32 year old? They are close to becoming coaches rather than being coached!

Possibly one of them at any one time. Not sure about all 3 together.

I wonder if other clubs could get more out of Cook, Burns, Willison - individually and/or in combination - than we have managed. I would hope so - because we've squeezed the square root of f-all out of what most people would regard as three decent talents.

You would be lucky to get either of the combinations to play 3-4 games in a row due to injuries/concussion! Younger players are a little less susceptible to injury.

Even Willison is 31.

I'm guessing the point being made is that players are not improved by the coaching at Bath and the majority just stagnate at best.

Pretty much any other club would get more out of all our players than we do, that much has been obvious for years. My point was in relation to people saying we need a big name 9, 10 and 12. What for? So they can underperform like everyone else at Bath?

Doesn't need to be a big name, Faf wasn't. Just has to be someone who is more dynamic than our current 9, 10 and 12. Arguably that is Cook, Burns and someone like Wright, to be fair.

If any other club would get more out of any player how come Bath had so many players at the world cup? If what you say is true then they wouldn't have been playing well enough to even be considered.

We don't need a big name, but we do need a younger name at 10. RP and JR learnt their trade early Gatland, 10's like Cips and George Ford play a flatter, faster game. Its incredibly hard to relearn the 10 position if your instinct is to play deeper and let your 12 smash it up.

Sorry to go back to the game but why was the last penalty awarded? Bath had 2 clear out players at the ruck, the 2 Wasps players were off their feet in good time. The highlights don't include the explanation.

We still should have kicked the ball out for a point. Even Mr H admitted that in his interview. We need points from every game like Bristol last season and Irish are aiming for just to stay up.

Bath win and BO & BoB go MIA, what a surprise?!
Be nice if they went permanently MIA.

Mutual flagellation, perhaps?
