Team Bath welcome old rivals Loughborough to STV for final BUCS Super Rugby home match of 2019 – free to watch!

Team Bath men’s 1st XV will be looking to end their run of four successive home matches on a positive note when they entertain old rivals Loughborough tonight (6.30pm kick-off, free entry).

Hong Kong international Alex Nisbet will captain the Blue & Gold – sponsored by Fulkers Bailey Russell – for the first time when the teams run out at the University of Bath Sports Training Village for the final time in 2019.

James Richardson and Jacob Tansey start on the wing and at scrum-half respectively, while Will French, Cam Keys and Ed Ashcroft return to the pack.
