EXETER Chiefs coach Rob Baxter expressed his disappointment after Bath scraped a 12-9 victory at Sandy Park in the Premiership on Saturday.

Baxter said: "I was disappointed. Not disappointed that we lost a game of rugby, because we have learned to deal with that over the years.

"It is just disappointing that we didn't play as well as we could.

"I am not taking anything away from Bath. They probably feel the same, but I think we made too many mistakes, we coughed up too much soft ball and gave away too many soft penalties.

"Sometimes you lose games and it is just tough but you have played well and given it everything but that hasn't happened in this game but it is not the end of the world."
