Bath Rugby can confirm that the home Aviva Premiership Rugby fixture against Gloucester Rugby, scheduled to be played on Saturday 2nd March, will now be played on Friday 1st March, kick-off 20.15.
The change has been made due to the Bath Half Marathon taking place on Sunday 3rd March, meaning the Recreation Ground will already be in use.
David Flatman, Communications Director, said: "Due to both the size of the Bath Half as an event and the fact the Rec is the event's base, it would have been problematic to keep the game on the Saturday. A later kick-off has been chosen to give as many supporters as possible the opportunity to get to the Rec in time for kick-off on the Friday night, and with the advance notice we hope you can still plan to come to support the boys in one of the biggest games of the season."
