Head coach Blair said: “We’re really excited to host knockout rugby at DAM Health Stadium, but we know it’s just that. You’ve got one chance and, if you don’t perform, you don’t give yourself that opportunity at the next stage.

“I’ve loved the buzz around training this week and I’ve seen a real focus from the guys too. We were pleased with lots of elements from the win against Pau and that confidence has carried through into our preparation.

“We know that Bath are a strong outfit who possess threats across the park. They’ve got some quality internationals and young up-and-coming players too.

“It’s great to have an English Premiership team coming up to the DAM Health and our guys are relishing the challenge.”
