Wilson switches focus to Europe

Date published: December 5 2016

Cardiff Blues head coach Danny Wilson wants his charges to put their loss to Ulster behind them ahead of facing Bath in the Challenge Cup.

The Welshmen sit atop Pool 4 by one point from Bath in European club rugby's second tier competition after both won their first two matches.

But on the back of a home defeat in the PRO12 to Ulster, Wilson has urged his side to respond with purpose against the English heavyweights.

"We won both games earlier in the season and we are top of that pool. We certainly want to go in and fight to stay top of that pool," he told Cardiff Blues' website ahead of Saturday's clash at the Arms Park.

"We've got two games against Bath, which will be tough fixtures for us but, it's an opportunity to fight for a competition, that we are sat at the top of the table, and see if we can stay there. 

"There's one place where we can put that right, the lack of accuracy against Ulster, and that's the training ground going into Bath.

"It's about hard work. That's what we did to improve out performances to get the runs at the end of last season and the beginning of this. Now, it is back to that to get us out of this patch."
