Re: Circle The Wagons: Bath v Exeter Chiefs: Teams Up -including Roko

I spent the first 20 minutes tutting and sighing and assuming the worst, and saying "you'll see, a knock-on is coming up any second now. See, what did I tell you. This is only going one way."

There were a few of those undermining errors (stuffing up the kick-off just after we'd got our first points on the board being a lowlight). In retrospect the error count was entirely acceptable, even in those first 20 minutes, given the conditions. But from the minute Roko gave us those crucial 20 metres in the build-up just before half-time, it was almost as if they eradicated all of our serial failings at a stroke. Great ball-retention. Tick. Sticking to sensible game-plan. Tick. Cool, calm decision-making. Tick. Execution to support the decisions. Tick. 'Wanting it' more than the opposition. Tick. Bench players having a positive impact. Tick.

Now for the big one....... following it up next week. Tick????????? And - can Priestland bring an appropriate game should the weather conditions be different?
