Faletau and Willison - now available for selection

Injured:

JJ - another couple of weeks by the sound of it
Tom Ellis - 3-4 weeks
Underhill - another month
Ross Batty - 3-week ban
Watson - mid FeB
Obano, Garvey - season over

Not available for this w/e:

Charlie Ewels
McConnochie
Nathan Catt

Doesn't sound a lot of missing players but that is a virtual 1st choice scrum selection out.

Need to use the next 5 weeks to recuperate, rotate the squad and try at all costs to avoid any further injuries.

JonnyF: Talupe, Dunn, Atters, Elliot S, Henry T and Francois would probably disagree with you. Also moi.

You think that all of those should play in Euro dead rubbers and the little cup? TF will want to get back up to speed and into the welsh side I would guess.

Apologies, that's what an unattended child can do.

So we get TF fit for Wales in meaningless games so he can miss our vital PL games. Marvellous.

Unfortunately thatís what you sign up for when you employ seasoned internationals OB - you knew this already. It happens every year to every club (Ben Tíeo is the obvious example). If you are lucky and a player is unlucky, you get an out of favour international quality player - like Cips or Armand - and then you have the best of both worlds!

Bum. Much worse than reported in the chron.

[www.bathrugby.com]

- Sam Underhill has had surgery on his ankle and is expected to be out of action for up to three months.

- Tom Ellis sustained ligament damage to his elbow against Worcester Warriors and will miss the next six to eight weeks as he undergoes rehabilitation.

So notwithstanding the pain etc. the dodgy hit by the Worcs player on Ellis has cost him any 6N involvement that he may have had as well as with Bath for the next 8 weeks or so. Nice one.

Ban Fatialofa until Ellis comes back. Total cheap shot that was meant to cause him harm.

This seems to be the year of 'quality' not 'quantity' on the injury front.

Faletau, Joseph, Watson, Obano, Underhill - long-term injuries to our best players.

Has he not been sited? I fear that those injuries together with the loss against Worcester (caused by Brew being unfairly penalised) will now take away any hope of a rewarding end to the season. With those players away we are looking a fairly mediocre side at present in terms of quality.

A back row of Faletau, Mercer, Louw looks decent enough. But Garvey, Ellis, Underhill is tidy too.

But doesn't leave much room for further injuries though. I get the impression that the injuries we get seem to be more seious and take longer to heal....attrition issue again?

Is there any video of this incident?. Unfortunately I missed it.

But yeah, real.blow. Probably our two form back-rowers, especially Ellis. Bad news for Underhill's world cup prospects too, as he was making 7 his own.
