Team Bath’s unbeaten BUCS Super Rugby away record came to an end against Exeter on Wednesday as they suffered a 44-17 defeat.
Nine Bath Rugby Academy players were involved with Archie Stanley, Jasper Spandler and Archie Griffin starting in the front row.
Lock Eddie Erskine, flankers Thompson Cowan and Ethan Staddon also featured in the pack while centre Louie Hennessey and back-three player Byron Lloyd-Gilmour were in the backs. Scrum-half Tom Carr-Smith was named on the bench.
Spandler continued his rich vein of scoring form with a try in the first period and an Alfie Garside penalty saw Team Bath go into half-time level at 10-10.
However, despite Harry Breeze’s converted score, Exeter built momentum in the second period to earn victory.
It was a disappointing result for Team Bath who have two games left this side of Christmas to end their first block on a high.
