Less of the back­handed off­loads, though. 6 Tom El­lis Prob­a­bly made plenty of tack­les but didn’t make a no­tice­able im­pact. 8 Josh Bayliss Tire­less as usual and was good at the break­down. Needs to reign in his de­fen­sive line speed a lit­tle as he is of­ten 2-3m ahead of his team-mates. 6 Max Green Did his ba­sics well but, again, didn’t give the de­fence much to think about as a run­ning threat around the rucks. 5 Alex Davies Couldn’t im­pose him­self on the game. Much of the time while he was on the field Bath were de­fend­ing and he got bumped off a cou­ple of times in con­tact. 5 Ruar­idh Mcconnochie Got marginally more ball than on his de­but, but none of it was in space. Showed naivety when his de­fen­sive gam­ble to go for the in­side man didn’t pay off for O’flaherty’s try. 7 Jamie Roberts Good run­ning lines, made a half-break and a full break. A solid per­for­mance be­fore mak­ing way for Max Clark. 6 Max Wright Didn’t have a great deal of joy in at­tack but didn’t stop try­ing to break the line. 7 Jack Wil­son Two tries and the first in par­tic­u­lar was a good fin­ish while un­der pres­sure from James Short. 6 Dar­ren Atkins A mixed bag. Was good re­turn­ing kicks on the counter and looked con­fi­dent step­ping in at ten, but kicked a cross­fielder out on the full then missed touch late on as Bath looked for a cru­cial try. Re­plac­ments: Jack Walker – 6, Will Vaughan 6, An­thony Perenise – 7, Sam Un­der­hill – 7, Kahn Fo­tu­ali’i – 7, Max Clark – 7, Levi Davis – 6, Jack Davies – un­used.
