Team Bath seeking another notable win on the road as they visit Loughborough in BUCS Super Rugby

Team Bath men’s 1st XV are aiming to claim another notable scalp on their travels when they visit Loughborough in BUCS Super Rugby tonight (7pm).

The Fulkers-sponsored Blue & Gold, who are also supported by MJ Church, head to the East Midlands to face their old rivals on the back on a historic win at Hartpury last week.

There are just two changes to the side that started that 13-11 victory in Gloucestershire, with Ed Rimmer returning at scrum-half and James Hadfield starting at hooker.

Both Ngeng twins, Sam and Simone, are among the replacements for Team Bath against a Loughborough side who have had an up-and-down season but are currently unbeaten at home having won three and drawn one.
