Team Bath looking to complete first league double of season as Northumbria visit kicks off busy BUCS Super Rugby home run

Team Bath men’s 1st XV kick-off a run of three successive BUCS Super Rugby home fixtures tonight (Wednesday) when they welcome Northumbria to the Sports Training Village (6.30pm).

It is the first reverse fixture of the season for the two teams, with Rengen-sponsored Team Bath having scored seven tries during an impressive 41-17 win in Newcastle back in October.

They go into tonight’s match on the back of two narrow three-point defeats to high-flying Exeter and Cardiff Met but will take plenty of confidence from their performances in those games.

Changes to the starting line-up see Bevan Howells come in at full-back and Cal Barrett move into the centres, with Sam Mercer taking his space on the wing. Archie Stanley and Elliot Powell return to the pack and there is a first start of the season for flanker Paddy Ashdown.

Entry for tonight’s match, as for all home fixtures, is free so come and back the boys in Blue & Gold!
