Football: Bath City FC: The Romans have gone three wins on the bounce a one nil victory against Dartford at Twerton Park on Saturday 10th February in the league in front of a crowd of 1,114.  Cody Cooke netted the winner in the first half on 10 minutes with the Darts coming back to press for an equaliser – city held on much to the relief of the crowd and manager alike. Three points and the Romans remain in the play-offs in 6th place with 50 pts – Somerset rivals Yeovil on 69pts look set to return to the national league at this stage.

Malaysian International Richard Chin has joined the Romans from Charlton Athletic until the end of the season. The club said: “A versatile wide player, Chin has experience in both the EFL and VNLS, as well as recently representing Malaysia at U23s level.” The new player already has a nick name – Chinny – and he enjoyed his debut gaining Man of the Match.

Rugby: Bath Rugby Union Club: The BB&W’s internationals were in action in the Six Nations competition over the weekend of the 10-11 February with Finn Russell’s Scotland denied a late try deemed not to have been grounded by the officials allowing France to win at Murrayfield by 16-20. Bath’s Cameran Redpath taking to the field after 30 minutes to bolster the Scots while the ‘magician’ Russell kept the scoreboard ticking over with his boot.

England edged Wales at Twickenham with Bath’s Sam Underhill and Well Stuart featured although subbed in the second half – in a match where Wales came close to victory only to see England’s George Ford kick England to victory winning 16-14.

It’s eyes down for the next home game in the Gallagher Premiership against Sale Sharks on Sunday 24th March when the BB&Ws will seek to grab maximum points and retain a healthy position in the league. There is the small matter of the Six Nations at the moment – hence the break but Bath’s Finn Russell had a blistering 50 minutes against Wales last week – only for Cymru to bounce back in the last 30 minutes and nearly overhaul Scotland’s seemingly unassailable lead of 0-20pts for the game to end 26-27. Meanwhile Will Stuart and Sam Underhill – Bath’s England players felt the heat in Rome – but saw out a spirited (and close run) victory against Italy running out 24-27 winners – perhaps Steve Borthwick should have played Tom Dunn, Charlie Ewels, Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson from the BB&Ws as well and enjoyed a wider win.
