17 October 2021

Neal Hatley says the team feel a lot of hurt following the defeat to Saracens in Round 5 of the Gallagher Premiership.

Bath Rugby found themselves heavily behind at half-time and despite three second-half tries, came out on the wrong side of a heavy loss.

"We're hurt massively by the result," head coach Hatley said.

"I know the work that has gone in from everyone at the club and it's hard; it's tough to take. It stings and really hurts."
