Five Academy players start for University of Bath tonight

17 October 2018

Five Bath Rugby Academy players will start for the University of Bath in their BUCS Super Rugby clash against Leeds Beckett this evening at the Rec, kick-off 18:30.

Tom Doughty captains the side after scoring a hat-trick in last week’s 41-36 victory over Nottingham Trent. Doughty will be joined in the front row by fellow Academy teammates Arthur Cordwell and Kieran Verden.

Jack Davies starts at blindside flanker for the Anniversary Game – first played in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of the University of Bath receiving Royal Charter status.

Wil Partington will look to show his pace and footwork, as the 19 year-old takes his place at full-back for this evening’s game.
