20 years on - Team News

30 January 2018

Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary since Bath Rugby became the first British club to win the Heineken Cup. Join us as we take a trip down memory lane, by reliving the game on Twitter from 14:25. But first, the all important team news... 

Andy Nicol will captain Bath Rugby for tomorrow’s Heineken Cup Final against Brive at Stade du Parc Lescure, kick-off 14:30 (UK time).

The scrum-half will link up with Mike Catt in the half-back combination, as Bath bid to become the first British club to lift the European Cup.

Victor Ubogu, a try scorer in the Semi-Final win against Pau, lines alongside Mark Regan and Dave Hilton in the front row.

Martin Haag and Nigel Redman make up the second row partnership, with Nathan Thomas, Richard Webster and Dan Lyle completing the pack.

Jeremy Guscott and Phil de Glanville will look to cause problems for the Brive defence from the midfield against a Brive side, who won the competition last year.

Adedayo Adebayo and Ieuan Evans occupy the wing positions, with Jon Callard providing the experience from fullback.
