Bath are on their way to the Arms Park

The trophy cabinet at Bath Rugby has been neglected in recent years , but the club took a big step towards silverware with a powerful victory at Adams Park on Sunday, with a 24-18 triumph over London Wasps in their Amlin Cup semi-final.

its an understatement to say Adams Park is not the most accessible of grounds,whatever your mode of transport.There always seems to be a long,slow-moving queue approaching Junction 4 of the M40 ( though clearly not for the game – the attendance was a shade over 6,000) ,and you still have to navigate the traffic in the park-and ride bus.And this on a day when said buses seemed to be breaking down do that I only made it to my seat as Andy Goode kicked the first points of the game.

But the club’s real problem is that they are ground-sharing with a football club,and there will be no long-term prosperity unless they play in their own stadium-though that prospect appears further and further away.
