Bayliss to captain Bath United

27 November 2017

Josh Bayliss will don the captain’s armband tonight when Bath United take on London Irish A at the Recreation Ground in the Premiership Rugby A League, kick-off 19:30.

There is a youthful feel to the United side, with seven players from Bath Rugby Academy’s Under 18 group involved.

Bayliss takes his place at number 8, and is joined in the back row by Cinderford RFC duo Lewis Beer and Matt Lane.

Tom Jeanes and Oli Cattell form the second row combination, with Sam Nixon and Will Vaughan scrumming down either side of Bath University hooker George Frampton.

Fresh from Anglo-Welsh Cup action, Max Green and Josh Lewis will look to orchestrate proceedings from the half-backs, with Rory Jennings partnering Will Butt in the midfield. Levi Davis and Luke Mehson provide the threat out wide, as Harry Davies completes the line-up at fullback.

Entrance to the game is free, however there is a suggested donation on the gates of £2, with all proceeds going to Bath Rugby Foundation.
