University of Bath host table-toppers Durham

12 February 2020

University of Bath will be looking to build on their impressive 39-33 win over Northumbria last week as they take on league leaders Durham University this evening (kick-off 18:30, free entry).

The Blue and Gold have made a couple of changes from Friday’s win as Ollie Cattell comes into the second row and Eduardo Balocco switches to flanker, where he is partnered by the returning Chris Barry.

Cattell is joined by Arthur Cordwell, George Worboys and Will Butt from Bath Rugby's Academy this evening. 

Scrum-half Ed Rimmer will captain Bath in their long-awaited first BUCS Super Rugby home match of 2020.

Durham top the table but were made to work hard for their previous win over Bath, winning 25-18 at Rosslyn Park in October.
