Relief for Bath after dramatic win

Date published: December 14 2015

Bath head coach Mike Ford admitted that his side's dramatic late win away to Wasps had come just at the right time after some tough losses. 

Anthony Watson's try in the corner set up England number ten George Ford for a match-winning conversion from the touchline, which he delivered for a 25-23 victory at the Ricoh Arena.

The win means Bath close the gap with Wasps to just two points in Pool 5 with a game in hand.

"We definitely needed that, in our profession it's not nice to lose a couple of games on the run and it took to the last kick of the game to win it this week," Ford told the EPC Rugby website.

"Wasps are a tough team and are dangerous all over the park. I thought we were in contention all over the park, we scored two tries and could easily have had three or four in that first half.

"They got back into the game, we gave them three or four easy penalties and they are a good side.

"I said before the game we needed to be more clinical and we had that at the end.

"The expectation on us this year is pretty big but all we can do is prepare well and we know we'll have to do the same again next week because they will be smarting."
