Michael Claassens says that Bath have received a good rest and are ready to go all guns blazing. Bath won one and lost one of their LV= Cup pool matches giving their first-team regulars a break from the action.

“Time off is vital. It’s a long season so it’s good to get a mental break,” the scrum-half told BBC Radio Bristol.

“A lot of the guys that came back look fresh at training. We haven’t played as well as we know we’re capable of yet, so I’m sure this is the turn for us.”

Bath sit sixth in the table but failed to win any of their league games in October, losing to Gloucester and Leicester and drawing at Harlequins.
