Bath Rugby’s opponents for the 2016/17 Anglo Welsh Cup have been confirmed today, along with the order of play.
Bath have been drawn in Pool 1, alongside Saracens, Northampton Saints and Newport Gwent Dragons. This means they will play the teams in Pool 4, and offers supporters the chance to enjoy two more instalments of classic rivalries, as Leicester Tigers and Gloucester Rugby join Newcastle Falcons and Scarlets in the opposing pool.
Bath will host Leicester at the Recreation Ground first up, with BT Sport broadcasting the game live on Friday 4th November (kick-off 19.45), before travelling to West Wales the following weekend.
Gloucester will arrive at the Rec on the weekend of the 28th January, before Bath head north to Kingston Park the first weekend in February.
