Blue & Gold back in BUCS Super Rugby action as Team Bath head to old rivals Loughborough for first match of 2020

Team Bath men’s 1st XV return to BUCS Super Rugby action for the first time in 2020 when they travel to old rivals Loughborough tonight (7pm).

The boys in Blue & Gold – sponsored by Fulkers Bailey Russell – will be keen to start the new year on a positive note after a disappointing run of results before Christmas.

A number of the starting XV for the visitors have represented Bath Rugby United in the Premiership Rugby Shield during the past month, including co-captains Ed Rimmer and Jordan Martin.

Team Bath, who are also supported by Rengen Developments, are without Gwilym Bradley and Max Ojomoh, who are on U20 Six Nations duty with Wales and England respectively.

Tonight’s team

Team Bath starting XV: 15 Paul Altier, 14 Cal Barrett, 13 Alex Nisbet, 12 Will Butt, 11 Sam Kennaugh, 10 Tom Pittman, 9 Ed Rimmer (cc); 1 Tom Rowland, 2 Rory Mead, 3 Will French, 4 Edoardo Balocco, 5 Elliot Berryman, 6 Jordan Martin (cc), 7 Tom Williams, 8 Ed Ashcroft. Replacements: 16 Caley Gray, 17 Arthur Cordwell, 18 Harry Sturge, 19 George Malone, 20 John Smith, 21 Ioan Lewis, 22 Rory Kennedy, 23 Alex Varney.
