We are delighted to announce that Bath Rugby Ladies will feature in a double-header with Bath Rugby men’s side on Sunday 17 October 2021 at the Rec.
Stuart Hooper's side will take on Saracens on their return to the Gallagher Premiership in Round 5 at 15:00, followed by Bath Rugby Ladies – who will play Supermarine Ladies in Round 3 of Championship 1 at 17:20.
It marks the beginning of an important partnership between the clubs, which both have strong ambitions to grow the women’s game in the region and compete at the highest level of the domestic game.
