Bath Rugby Unseen | Episode 2: The evolution of our attack

24 August 2021

After reflecting on first block of pre-season training in episode one, Bath Rugby Unseen, powered by Dyson, focuses on the evolution of the club's attack in episode two.

As the Blue, Black and Whites enter the sixth week of pre-season, Stuart Hooper's side continue to work on all facets of their game, honing their style ahead of the 2021/22 season.

The club's recruitment of Attack & Backs Coach David Williams and fly-half Danny Cipriani has been key to establishing said attacking style.

"I've always got a view that you play two games at the weekend - the scoreboard game and the performance or style game," former Attack Coach of The Sharks Williams said.

"Sometimes we will win or lose the scoreboard but a non-negotiable for this team must be we win the style game. We must deliver a style that we believe in that can win you rugby games.

"I think if you've got that mindset, then you can start to win by design."

New signing, 16-cap England international Cipriani said: "There's so much talent within the squad to work with.

"We've got a lot of ball-handling forwards which is a great sign because it means we can get the ball through their hands into the backs and move it on to an edge because I think it's important we try and release our backs as best as we can this season."

One of Bath Rugby's homegrown talents, Max Ojomoh, also features in episode two and has relished having Williams at the club.

"In my five weeks off, I was in here most weeks speaking with David going through what we're looking for next season," the Senior Academy centre said.

"I have just tried to plant the seed so when we do get to that first game, we're ready from the jump and we're ready to play."
