Match Reaction: Fox reflects on close-fought season opener

20 September 2021

Ollie Fox believes Bath Rugby’s style was certainly on show in the narrow loss 20-19 to Sale Sharks at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The scrum-half completed an hour of action from the bench as the Blue, Black and Whites fought back to almost record a fantastic turnaround. 

“We’re absolutely gutted we didn’t come away with the win – we were in it right until the end,” Fox said. 

“We talk a lot about our style, feeling our style, winning our style game… I think that we showed that in buckets.  

“We’re really trying to impose our style on teams now and go at them and make them think about how Bath are going to play. They’re not going to know what’s coming next, where we’re coming from, how we’re going to attack and I think that showed in that second half.”
