Team Bath duo help England Students to home victory against France in opening international

Team Bath BUCS Super Rugby duo Will Partington and Jack Kenningham helped England Students record an impressive win in the first of their two international matches against France.

Bath Rugby Academy player Partington started at full-back in Sunday’s 27-17 victory at Chester RFC, while Harlequins Academy forward Kenningham came off the bench for his England Students debut.

The focus now turns to the away fixture, taking place on Friday (April 19) at the Stade Gilbert Santiago in Barbezieux-St Hilaire.

Both Partington and Kenningham study Sports Performance and are supported by the Team Bath Dual Career Programme. Applications are now being taken for the 2019-20 programme from current and prospective University of Bath students – click here to find out more.
