Bath will click soon in­sists Wil­son

The Rugby Paper - - Premiership Rugby Cup -

TWO-TRY winger Jack Wil­son be­lieves Bath are not far away from get­ting it right.

Fol­low­ing their sec­ond suc­ces­sive Premier­ship Cup de­feat the New Zealan­der said: “We are hurt­ing be­cause all the work we’ve been put­ting in isn’t be­ing trans­ferred ito wins.

“The penalty count was quite high but that’s be­cause this group of play­ers who have come to­gether for this com­pe­ti­tion are ex­cited to get their hands on the ball. They are ea­ger and that’s caus­ing mis­takes.

“But we are not far away and when we click it’s only go­ing to get bet­ter. I’m look­ing for­ward to when it all comes to­gether be­cause I know it will.”

Gen­eral man­ager Stu­art Hooper added: “Our de­fen­sive play on our line was out­stand­ing. We showed a real will­ing­ness to play but let our­selves down with a few er­rors.”

Ex­eter head coach Ricky Pel­low, de­lighted with the com­bi­na­tion of ex­pe­ri­ence and youth­ful prom­ise which saw the Chiefs fol­low up last week­end’s draw at New­cas­tle with a win, said: “We are in a strong po­si­tion go­ing into the Har­lequins game at home next week.

“It’s in our hands now and if we can get the win at home it will push us into the last group game against Bris­tol.”
