Super Sevens Series run continues at Bournemouth

26 May 2023

After a week's rest, Bath Rugby head to one of the biggest 7s festivals of the summer at Bournemouth Super Sevens Series. 

Head Coach Maria Crowfoot has named a 13-player squad for the Dorset-based tournament, with two guest players featuring to bolster the side after suffering recent injuries. 

After making a solid impression during their time with Bath Rugby 7s last year, Liv Taylor and Becca Lacey return to the fold from injury to add their experience to the young side. 

Utility back, Tara Aksoy, will earn her Bath Rugby 7s debut also returning from injury that saw her sidelined for the two opening tournaments. 

Sofia Mazzone and Kyara Martin retain their place as Crowfoot's chosen scrum halves, with Nell Powell and Lucy Tanner supporting in the back line.

Remaining in the team after impressive earlier performances are Bethan Thomas, Meg Griffiths, Mairéad McErlean and Bethanie Wilson. 

Appearing as guests for Bath Rugby in the Super Sevens Series second leg are Bristol Bears back row Bo Osborn-Clarke, and Norwegian 7s player Amalia Westurlund.

After making improvements in their two opening rounds as they find their feet as a new side, Bath Rugby will play five games across Saturday and Sunday. 

First up for the Blue, Black and White are the Wild Dogs Alpha Pack followed by the Tropics. 

In their second meeting of the season, the team will take on rivals Hammerheads, finishing the Saturday fixtures against English Universities. 

On Sunday, Bath Rugby will face British Army with the top four of the five making it through to the semi-final stage.
