Hartpury Coach Sean Lynn: “We had to battle today. For 35 minutes we showed our true class, but we need to learn how to finish games off. We managed to do that tonight and well done to the boys for reaching Twickenham.
“I am delighted for the boys and we are looking forward to getting the triple now. We can’t wait. It will be a good final and a great advert for university rugby.”
Hartpury Captain Seb Negri: We don’t make it easy for ourselves! But fair play again, we showed character. That will not be enough at Twickenham though. We need to step up, learn and move forward.
“It’s been an awesome journey and we have put in a shift this season. It has been a great year for Hartpury Rugby and the end goal is to win at Twickenham. Winning BUCS Super Rugby and National One means two boxes are already ticked and we want to win it at Twickenham.
Bath Head Coach Aaron James: “We wanted to believe and back ourselves and we did that but I’m gutted. We lost fighting tonight. I am very proud of the boys, but it wasn’t to be. Well done to Hartpury.”
“We keep coming back because we are a resilient side. If we are honest, we can’t give the chances away like we did tonight. The Super League has been brilliant and we have been able to match the big boys in this league. We need to dust ourselves down and go again next year.”
