Final flourish: Nick Abendanon

Set to leave The Rec to join Clermont next season, Bath full-back Nick Abendanon hopes to add a trophy or two to his collection.

Success has been limited for Abendanon at Bath besides winning the Challenge Cup in 2008.

The former England full-back though is in fine form as Bath contest on two fronts, working to secure a spot in the Premiership playoffs while reaching the final of the Challenge Cup against Northampton.

Abendanon has been with Bath since 2005 and despite having excellent memories of his time with the club, he admits that some silverware would be the icing on the cake.

"No matter what happens I can certainly say that I have had a great time at Bath and have really enjoyed my time here," said Abendanon.

"So there is no need for me to try and end on a high but having said that I would love nothing more than to end with silverware.

"This is such a great club and is well set up to have success and everyone at the club is determined to get Bath back to the top.

"We have the Amlin Challenge Cup final to look forward to and now we have to make sure we get into the top four.

"Hopefully Exeter Chiefs can do us a favour but we can do it ourselves against Northampton and we could potentially end up facing them three times in four weeks which is exciting."
