Bath Rugby U18's team announcement

10 January 2019

Ayden Chenoweth, Archie Griffin, Frankie Read and Archie Stanley will make their first starts of the Premiership Rugby U18 League campaign, as Bath Rugby U18's take on local rivals Bristol Bears U18's on Saturday at Royal Wootton Bassett (kick-off 14:00) 

Stanley and Griffin come into the front row alongside the ever-present John Stewart, who has featured against both Exeter Chiefs and Gloucester Rugby.

Ewan Richards captains the side from the second row where he’ll feature alongside Ethan Staddon. Chenoweth and Read join Nahum Merigan in the back row for the West Country derby this weekend.  

Orlando Bailey and Will Cook continue in an unchanged half-back pairing, with Max Ojomoh at inside centre. Diego Periel, a try scorer in last weekend’s narrow 23-22 defeat to Gloucester joins Ojomoh in the midfield at outside centre. 

Owen Dudman and Gabriel Hamer-Webb occupy the left and right wing respectively, with George Worboys completing the back line at full-back.
