Andy Beattie has seen all the ups and downs endured by his beloved Bath Rugby for most of the last 10 years that he has been serving the club but the 33 year old now believes that the club is showing steady signs of progress.
Beattie admits that in spite of the all the struggles that the club has endured, it hasn’t wavered off its tracks and the big man believes that the club will succeed in ultimately reaching their target of reaching the summit of English rugby.
During the 10 years that Beattie has been with the club, they were almost relegated, managing to avoid it by the skin of their teeth and they also managed to reach the highs of playing in Premiership European Final.
However, over the last few weeks, the club has endured a much more difficult period; losing 8 of the last 10 games in both the League and the Cup and Andy Beattie accepts that these losses have been a stark reminder of how far Bath Rugby has to climb.
However, Beattie also believes that the financial stability that is now being provided to the club by owner Bruce Craig, with the assistance of the Director of the club Sir Ian McGeechan will no doubt take the club to the pinnacle of glory. They were amongst our pre-season rugby betting tips at the start of the season, and now they get the financials right they can really power on.
The former England A forward went on to add that he is happy with where the club is at the moment and it looks extremely promising for the future. He also stated that the players and owners of the club are extremely ambitious and they know that the only way is forward. Had he still been playing for England we’re sure their Six Nations odds would be much shorter!
Beattie further emphasized that although the future targets are being set, the immediate results are also being considered at Bath Rugby and the entire team is working hard towards achieving it.
