Reaction: Bailey on enjoying his rugby in Bath Rugby's latest outing

4 October 2021

Orlando Bailey thoroughly enjoyed his rugby in Round 3 as Bath Rugby's style came alive against Bristol Bears.

The fly-half was one of a number of high-performing players in the brand new away kit and delivered a deliciously lofted kick for Will Muir and Max Ojomoh to combine for the visitors' third score at Ashton Gate.

It wasn't to be for Bath who did earn a third losing bonus point in as many games but Bailey believes the team are heading the right direction in terms of performance.

"I really enjoyed playing," he said.

"We stuck to our style, especially in the first half, and caused them a lot of problems.

"I think we caused the Bears so much trouble with our phase, with our strikes and we're going in a really good direction with that. 

"I hope for any neutral watching or Bath fan that they saw a real display of rugby, from both sides."
