London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith was delighted to see his backs coach Mike Catt get back into action at his old stamping ground at the weekend, but frustrated at only picking up a point at Bath.
The Exiles had enough chances to stop the European Challenge Cup quarter-finalists from marching to the top of the Guinness Premiership, but they failed to take them.
The 36-year-old Catt returned at centre following a broken nose sustained in the defeat at Gloucester at the start of the month. He came through unscathed and looks set to be in contention for a place against Perpignan in the Heineken Cup quarter-final.
Smith and Catt will be hoping the month of March can end on a high note after three successive defeats - Gloucester, London Wasps and Bath - when they host Bristol at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday.
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
