The coach of Bath Rugby Union team, Neal Hatley is of the opinion that Exeter, their opponent in the match scheduled to be held on 28th February, Saturday, will be under a lot of pressure.
The match will be held at Sandy Park. So far in the competition, the Bath Rugby Union team has not been able to win three matches. Two matches out of three that they have lost were against Northampton Saints and Saracens. Northampton Saints team is currently in the topmost position in the competition and the Saracens team currently holds the third place.
There is only a difference of four points between Bath Rugby which currently holds the second place in the league table and Wasps team, which is at present in the seventh place.
Bath Rugby team’s six players are not being able to play for the team in this competition as they’re currently playing in Six Nations rugby competition, but Coach Hatley is unwilling to say that this has put the team at a disadvantageous position.
The intensity of competition between the teams is such that there is a very narrow margin of points that separates each team and even within one week, the position of a team could drastically deteriorate or improve. Coach Hatley has said that this is known to all the players of the team and he added that the matter would be different altogether if the match was the last one of a season. He said that there are six more matches in which the team would participate in this season and there’s also 30 more points that a team can win in this season. Coach Hatley has said that his team and the number of games remaining are the two reasons for which he considers his team to be still at an advantageous position.
