Finally all speculation and rumours are now done and dusted. Today we finally had the news we'd all been anticipating and expecting, yes the worst kept secret is confirmed.
After weeks if not months the rumours of Gary Gold coming to Bath to take the helm after the departure of Sir Ian McGeechan was confirmed by the club. Other speculative inclusions to the coaching squad have also been revealed as truths.
So without further ado I wish to congratulate and wish a good luck to the new boys in town. Mr Gary Gold, Mr Toby Booth, Mr Mike Ford and Mr Neal Hatley all coming to form an almost super group of coaching staff to link up with Brad Davis to resurrect Bath like a Phoenix from the flames.
As Bath fans we all live with expectations but also an eternal optimism. Our dreams of returning to being a dominant force in English rugby are alway obvious at the beginning of each campaign. This season it was far from the desired result. With such a topsy turvy season being rewarded with no Heineken cup rugby next year dealt a harsh blow to the hearts of the Blue, Black and white faithful.
With the new line up it us still unsure who has which role other the Gold who is the head honcho, particular roles are to be disclosed at a later date.
This evening Gary Gold and Neal Hatley took the time to respond to the well wishers on Twitter to say thank you and they are eager to get to grips with the Bath empire. This was a bold and very respected thing to undertake showing they have a passion to take the club forward.
We will have to see if the new collective are the men for the job but as always the Bath fans will show faith, belief and hope!
Lets hope the Legatus Legionis can lead the centurians to victory!
