Dave Attwood joined Bath Rugby at the start of the 2011/12 season. Originally from Bristol, the 6ft 7in lock made 39 appearances for Gloucester before making the switch to Bath.

His lineout prowess and athleticism around the field has seen him become a widely respected member of the Bath Rugby squad, and mainstay in the pack - he made his 100th appearance in the Blue, Black and White in January 2015 against Wasps.
