Strong Team Bath men’s 1st XV head to promoted Cardiff University as BUCS Super Rugby returns for 2019

Team Bath men’s 1st XV resume their BUCS Super Rugby campaign after the New Year break today (Wednesday) when they make their first league visit to promoted Cardiff University (5pm).

The Fulkers-sponsored Blue & Gold, who are also supported by MJ Church, sit fifth in the table at the start of 2019 but are just nine points adrift of table-topping Exeter, who are also in the Welsh capital to face third-placed Cardiff Met.

Cardiff University are currently bottom of the table but won two of their last five games before Christmas and will provide a tough test on their home ground.

Team Bath welcome back captain Tom Doughty for his first game since November, while Angus Hinton also returns after being ruled out since October’s Anniversary Game at The Rec and Rhys Davies makes his first start of the season.

Team Bath starting XV: 15 Will Partington, 14 Finn Murphy, 13 Alex Nisbet, 12 Will Butt, 11 Hugo Stiles, 10 Alex Burrage, 9 Ed Rimmer; 1 Arthur Cordwell, 2 Tom Doughty (c), 3 Kieran Verden, 4 Angus Hinton, 5 Adam Thresher, 6 Rhys Davies, 7 Chris Barry, 8 Jack Kenningham. Replacements: 16 Beck Cutting, 17 George Cave, 18 Austin Hay, 19 Cameron Keys, 20 James Hadfield, 21 George Wootten, 22 Brandon Bellamin, 23 Ethan Hutt.
