Bath Lock Attwood Wants Squad Rule Over Big Guns

Bath lock Attwood (Dave) has said that the club shouldn’t end up as just “also-rans” against the dominant teams of Premiership this term.

The Rec rugby outfit just ran riot in the game against Leicester Tigers, sealing a fantastic 45-0 triumph last weekend.

Bath would be traveling to Franklin’s Gardens come Saturday for a match against reigning champs Northampton prior to meeting Saracens, the runners-up in the last season.

“We wish to exert good West-Country dominance all through the Premiership”, stated the 12-cap English second-rower”, stated Attwood. “We wish to match-up & say that we wish to come up on top. While we review this season, we will depend on these fixtures to judge ourselves. We aren’t gonna sit by & think that we have lost out on 3 or 4 to big guys yet we performed well. We wish to be right on top, we are not exactly interested in just being the also-rans.”

Bath lost out to Harlequins at the play-offs on the final day of regular season last May, in spite of spending majority of campaign in top 4. Sarries finished right on top table followed by Saints who were further followed by Leicester & Quins. Post their disappointing conclusion to domestic season this year, Bath also lost out on Amlin Challenge Cup finale against Northampton .However, it seems that Ford’s team have come up with quite a blistering start this current rugby campaign, beating London Welsh & Sale prior to running in 5 tries against the Tigers.

However, Dave, who is presently in the 3rd season with the famous rugby club, insisted that they wouldn’t get swayed away by past weekend’s performance.

“We have not achieved anything till now”, Attwood continued.”It is really humbling to experience the great response we have received from our supporters. This means huge.”
