Bath Rugby announce squad for inaugural E-Sports Premiership tie with Leicester Tigers

27 March 2020

Bath Rugby travel to face Leicester Tigers in a first-ever E-sport fixture in Round 15 of the Gallagher Premiership on Friday evening, after naming their most exciting team of the season as selected by our supporters (kick-off 19:45).

Following the postponement of the Gallagher Premiership season due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Bath Rugby have come together with Leicester Tigers to ensure that the original fixture is played, even if only virtually at this time. 

All the live match-action can be followed on our Twitter @BathRugby with Bath fielding a strong side to face Tigers (according to Rugby 20 player ratings).

This match will be played at Union Stadium (Rugby 20’s own version of Welford Road) and will bring our supporters the opportunity to see some rugby, in what is otherwise a very empty sporting calendar.

Here is your Bath Rugby XV against Leicester Tigers:

15. Anthony Watson (77)
