Trip to Exeter first up as Team Bath get ready to test themselves against BUCS Super Rugby’s top two in successive weeks
Team Bath men’s 1st XV are heading down the M5 today to face South West rivals Exeter as they kick-off a big couple of weeks in BUCS Super Rugby (2pm).
Exeter sit second in the table, just behind Durham who are next to face Rengen-sponsored Team Bath at the Sports Training Village on Wednesday 9th February (6.30pm kick-off, free to watch).
Team Bath suffered a last-gasp defeat when they entertained Exeter earlier in the season but go into today’s match on the back of their own comeback victory against Cardiff last week.
Bath Rugby Academy player George Worboys, who scored a hat-trick against Exeter at the STV, comes back into the starting XV and is joined by George Wootten in the half-backs pairing. Cal Barrett also returns to the wing and John Taylor starts at hooker in the only change to the forwards from last week.
