The Club

The Club

Established in 1865, Bath Rugby is one of the oldest and most prestigious rugby clubs in the world.

Throughout the 80's and 90's, Bath were a formidable force, with the likes of Gareth Chilcott, Stuart Barnes, David Trick and Graham Dawe ensuring that silverware, in the form of the John Player Cup (latterly the Pilkington Cup) and the Courage League (now known as the Premiership), was a familiar sight in the Recreation Ground trophy cabinet at the end of each season.

Professionalism changed the game, but Bath continued to succeed. International stars such as Jeremy Guscott, Jason Robinson, Phil de Glanville, Mike Catt and Mike Tindall all donned the legendary Blue, Black and White in the 90's, and in 1998, ex-Scotland captain, Andy Nicol, became the first British player to lift the Heineken Cup, as Bath triumphed over Europe. The next trophy came ten years later, as Bath defeated Worcester Warriors in the European Challenge Cup in 2008.
