Bath must reach another level to beat the European champions Saracens at the Rec on Saturday, according to head coach Tabai Matson.
Saracens destroyed Northampton 55-24 at Twickenham on Saturday to lay down an impressive early season marker – a result that Matson believes the Saints will be 'humiliated' by.
Bath meanwhile beat Leicester 27-23 in a tight contest last Sunday despite having three players sin-binned.

But the Kiwi coach says Bath need to improve vastly if they are to topple Mark McCall's side - while warning Sarries they would be in for a tougher test.
'To play the European champions and the current league leaders at the Rec, it could not get any better,' he said.
'They are champions of Europe but not champions of the Rec, so for us we have to roll in and bring the Bath game. We know if we do that we can get a result.
'The game against Leicester was tough, but we have to go to another level to beat the European champions who are clearly in a seam of form.
'When you see excellence you have to tip your cap. I admire Saracens, they are an amazing club and clearly do a lot of things right.
'When you see them dismantle a team in round one, a proud team by a record score, you have tip your hat. They were too good everywhere.
'They are European champions for obvious reasons.'
