Redpath primed for Warriors test at the Rec

8 September 2020

Bath Rugby’s Cameron Redpath is anticipating an exciting encounter against Worcester Warriors as the Blue, Black and White return to The Rec in Round 19 of the Gallagher Premiership (kick-off 19:45, Live on BT Sport 1).

After picking up a third bonus-point win on Saturday since rugby’s restart back on the 14th August, the young centre is predicting an exciting affair as the two sides lock horns at the Rec tomorrow evening.

Redpath said: “They are a good well drilled side, so it will be tough. We will have to break them down and then hopefully we can try and just stick to our guns and not really focus on them too much. We just focus on ourselves and try to try score some try’s and do what we’ve been doing.

You’ve got the likes of Ollie Lawrence, I’ve played a lot of under 20s with him and he is a good carrier especially in the centres for myself. He will be good.

“They have got a lot of good youngsters as well I know Nick David played on the wing and full-back at the minute, he’s got some good feet. I think we have just got to be aware of people like that and just understand that they could be playing especially with all of these games being played.

“Three games in a week there could be a high turnaround, so we just have to be prepared for everything.”

Warriors posed as stern opposition last time the two sides met at a stormy Sixway with the result ending 22-21 to Bath Rugby. With this at the forefront, Worcester will not be travelling to the Rec to roll over but Redpath insisted that the side just need to focus on themselves.

He said: “We are trying to play a bit at the minute and just show what we can do. We’re trying to score tries. I think we will be physical as we have been so far so hopefully it will be a good game all around with backs and forwards.

“Obviously at the minute it is quite hard to get a lot of training in just because of the short turnaround so we just have to remember our detail is there, not so much physically demanding but it’s just detail at the minute and its good.”

Having cast aside a strong Harlequins side last time out, Bath Rugby will be looking to add another to their tally, but on reflection of the result at The Stoop, Redpath looked back on his decisive offload that allowed Ruaridh McConnochie to score in the corner.

He said: “Yeah really good, enjoyable. There was obviously a lot of errors in there, but we went there for the five points and we ended up getting them, so it was good and the lads were unreal.

To be fair in the moment you never really notice what you are doing, I think it was just on and Ruaridh was calling for it, so he just said fling it, I’ve been trying it all game and it came off so I was happy.”
