University of Bath students and BUCS Super Rugby players help Bath United to entertaining victory over Harlequins at The Rec
A late penalty from sporting scholar George Worboys secured a closely-fought victory over Harlequins A at The Rec on Friday for a Bath Rugby United side featuring a host of University of Bath students.
He also converted two of the three tries for Bath whose starting line-up included fellow England U20 internationals and University of Bath students Max Ojomoh and Ethan Staddon, who is supported by a Santander Scholarship.
On the bench were Arthur Cordwell, Tom Carr-Smith, Xavier Hastings and Frankie Read, who study Physics, Management, Social Sciences and Sports Performance respectively, plus four Team Bath BUCS Super Rugby players who aren’t contracted to Bath Rugby – Alex Burrage, Zak Giannini, Jordan Martin and Alex Nisbet.
Graduate Kieran Verden also featured for the Blue, Black & White, while Sports Performance alumnus Tom Dunn made his 150th appearance for Bath Rugby’s 1st XV during Sunday’s Premiership defeat to Wasps.
