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.

Having represented England at U19, U20 and Saxons level, Attwood has gone on to make 20 appearances for the England senior team, and was selected in the wider squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
