Kick with conviction
Aimless kicking has been an Achilles’ heel of Bath over the past couple of seasons. In just two matches in this European campaign, Leinster have racked up 336 carries – more than any other side. They are comfortable moving through phases – with Garry Ringrose (above) often to the fore – and will starve Bath of possession given the chance. Bath’s striking out of hand has to be well-judged and their kick-chases have to be energetic and organised.
