Club Statement - Max McMullen

22 October 2019

It is with heartfelt sadness we share the news that Max McMullen, a young man who is in our Academy tragically passed away this weekend. Our thoughts are with Max’s family and friends at this deeply sad time. 

Max joined the Academy last season as an U15 having spent time previously in our Developing Player Programme here in Bath. He was a popular member of our Academy group, a young man that we saw develop both on and off the field during his time with us. He was a truly promising young player whose love for the game was clear for us all to see. 

We feel lucky as a club to have been able to support Max on his rugby journey in recent seasons, and this news is something that everyone in the Academy feels deep sadness about. As a club we will do all we can to support Max’s family and teammates both now and in the future. 

Max was a huge part of our academy and he will always be a part of our Club.
