Jonathan Joseph brilliance sets up Francois Louw try for great Bath try

Jonathan Joseph brilliance sets up Francois Louw try for great Bath try

Bath secured a bonus point victory over Toulouse this weekend with this great try set up by Jonathan Joseph. As Bath keep European Champion Cup hopes alive, their centre pairing of Kyle Eastmond and Joseph eagerly await Stuart Lancaster’s England Six Nation’s squad announcement on Wednesday.

The match started off with plenty of action, as a George Ford penalty then Matt Banahan try within seven minutes gabe Bath an early lead.

Toulouse responded with a try of their own through second row Yoann Maestri, but couldn’t keep Bath at bay, as they notched up another two tries – one, an interception by scrum-half Chris Cook, and the second by centre Joseph after a break by midfield partner Kyle Eastman.

Toulouse managed to squeeze in a try before half time making it 25-14 at the break.

A Toby Flood penalty early in the second half put the home team within seven points. That’s as close as they would come. Bath’s defence proved too good in the second half and when Joseph regained this grubber then set up Francois Louw for the try, it was game set and match.

Bath Head Coach Mike Ford called it a “world class” effort from Joseph and also highlighted a crucial try saving tackle from George Ford in the second half.

With Bath’s backline in such fine form, it begs the question: can the trio of Ford, Joseph and Eastmond replicate their form in the Six Nations for England?

More importantly, does Stuart Lancaster think so? We will find out on Wednesday.

Bath inch up to second place in Pool Four of the European Champion’s Cup and face Glasgow this coming weekend (who they lost to in their first encounter) while Toulouse, at the top of the table, face bottom placed Montpellier. Pool Four is in for a tense final weekend.
