Play-off hopes left in balance as Team Bath men’s 1st XV suffer heavy BUCS Super Rugby defeat at Cardiff Arms Park

Team Bath are still waiting to secure their place in the end-of-season play-offs after suffering a heavy defeat during Wednesday’s BUCS Super Rugby visit to Cardiff.

The Rengen-sponsored men’s 1st XV held a narrow 15-14 lead at half-time under the floodlights at Cardiff Arms Park but the second half proved one to forget as they conceded 43 unanswered points.

The result means that Cardiff move above Bath, who slip into the eighth and final play-off spot. They have one more game of the regular league season remaining, a trip to sixth-placed Swansea on Wednesday 9th March, and are currently six points clear of Leeds Beckett who have two games in hand, also against Cardiff and Swansea.
