Davis eyes Bath success

Bath attack coach Brad Davis believes the club's new management structure will help propel them towards future success.
Bath are hoping to bring back the glory days next season.
The Rec-based outfit underperformed last season, eventually finishing in eighth position, but a turnaround in the coaching organisation has seen Gary Gold installed as the head honcho.
Alongside the South African will be former England coach Mike Ford, ex-London Irish coaches Toby Booth and Neal Hatley, and Davis himself.
And the Australian admits changes needed to be made after the disappointment of the previous campaign.
He said: "I think the guys that they've brought in have a tremendous amount of experience. They're talented coaches and they've been involved in all different areas. For example, Gary and Fordy have international experience and Toby was with London Irish.
"I suppose the greatest measure will be how many games we win and, ultimately, that's what we want to do.
"We can all offer something different and our objective is clearly to get the best out of this group of players, so there's plenty of work for everyone to crack on with and it's an exciting time.
"The first few days are just about testing and getting some procedures in place for the boys, and it really starts to crack on from here on.
"Obviously, there's been a lot of change in the summer at Bath, guys have come in and are finding out about what it's all going to be about. They've come back in and brought into everything so far, so it's looking good."
Bath begin their Aviva Premiership campaign when they face Worcester and they are 1.53 to win, 19.00 to draw and can be backed at 2.50 to lose to the Warriors.
