Team Bath have named a strong match-day squad for tonight’s BUCS Rugby Championship quarter-final with local rivals Hartpury at the Team Bath Sports Training Village (6.30pm kick-off, free to watch).
England U20 Six Nations squad members Josh Dingley and Mackenzie Graham return to the starting XV along with prop Ollie Tack, flanker Tom Cowan, centre Sam Kennaugh and full-back Alex Clayton, while France 7s international Luca Mignot switches to fly-half.
Louie Hennessey, fresh from representing Wales in the U20 Six Nations, is among the replacements for Bath Building Society-sponsored Team Bath, who finished level on points with Hartpury in the final BUCS Super Rugby league table but have home advantage thanks to placing fourth overall.
They are hoping for a big home crowd to cheer them on and spectators are reminded that admission for the big match is free – head through the Sports Training Village to the Sports Café balcony for a fantastic view of the action.
