Mike Ford, the head coach of the Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club Bath Rugby has hailed the performance of his fearsome forward players for their win against the London Wasps at Adams Park this weekend.
Ford heaped praise on the club’s forward as the club picked up their first win over the London Wasps at their home in five years and with their 25-8 success on Sunday.
According to Ford, the foundation for the win was built by the fantastic forward line of the club, which, according to the boss, has become one of the most feared forward lines in the country by a country mile, thanks largely to the efforts of forwards coaches Neal Hatley and Toby Booth.
According to Ford, Bath Rugby played very well away from home adding that it was a performance that could be simply defined as clinical and professional.
He went on to add that the work that Booth and Hatley have done with the forwards players this year has been fantastic and it was there for all to see during the match. He pointed out to the dominance of the scrum as well as their lineout time.
Ford also challenged that there haven’t been too many teams that have been able to get the better of them when it came to tight play by the forwards and he doesn’t doubt that things will be more or less for the remainder of the season as well.
But Ford also acknowledged that the result could have been very different for Bath Rugby had Andy Goode of the London Wasps not missed three straight penalties in the first 50 minutes and he thought it was good that he did because Bath were pleased to return to the dressing room at half time with a 11-0 lead.
