Team Bath all set for penultimate home game as they entertain Swansea for first time in BUCS Super Rugby

Team Bath men’s 1st XV welcome new BUCS Super Rugby opposition to the University of Bath Sports Training Village tonight as they entertain Swansea (6.30pm kick-off, free entry).

Swansea have adapted well to the top flight of student rugby since their promotion last year and currently sit one place above the Blue & Gold – sponsored by Fulkers Bailey Russell – with three games of the season remaining.

It is the penultimate home match of 2019-20 for Team Bath, who will be keen to get back to winning ways after last week’s tough contest against table-topping Durham.

There are just two changes to the starting XV, with co-captain Jordan Martin returning at number 8 and James Fitzmaurice coming into the second row.

Don’t forget, admission is free for all home matches at the Sports Training Village so come and back the boys in Blue & Gold!
