Loan Watch: Five Bath Rugby loanees involved in victories

29 January 2023

Five of our six Bath Rugby loanees experienced victories on Saturday afternoon.

George Worboys, Jordan Venter and Gabe Goss were all in the backline for Taunton who overcame Esher in National One. 

Starting at fly-half, full-back and wing respectively, the trio contributed to a 27-18 win for the Titans as they look to push away from the bottom end of the table. 

In National Two West, Ciaran Donoghue was at full-back as Dings Crusaders earned a bonus-point win on the road against Barnstaple.

The Bristol side remain in the promotion hunt after the win with Donoghue collecting six points to take his tally to 109 in 10 games.

Meanwhile in the Gallagher Premiership, Tom Ellis made his Saracens debut as his six-week loan got underway with a last-gasp win over Bristol Bears. 

The Bath centurion came on for the Men in Black at half-time and was part of a maul that marched Theo Dan over for a try, and cleared out in an important ruck which led to Francois Hougaard’s 80th-minute winner. 

Elsewhere, Darren Atkins played full-back for Richmond who suffered a 26-14 defeat to Hartpury in the Championship.

In case you missed it, nine Academy players were involved in Team Bath’s BUCS Super Rugby win over Hartpury on Friday.
