United name team for tonight's Aviva A League opener

30 November 2015

Bath United have named their team to face Exeter Braves tonight at the Rec (k.o. 19:30) for their opening Aviva A League match of the season.

Fullback Rory Jennings, right wing Darren Atkins and the midfield combination of Brett Herron and Max Clark have all represented England age groups, while left wing Jeff Williams joined the Club this season from England Sevens. 

Adam Hastings, formerly of Scotland U18s, starts at fly-half, with former Wales U20 international Jonathan Evans at scrum-half and captain for the evening. 

Academy front rowers Beno Obano (loosehead) and Dan Frost (hooker) are joined by the vastly experienced England international David Wilson at tighthead. Charlie Ewels is at second row alongside Marcus Garrett.

Levi Douglas makes his United debut at number six, with the unrelated Mercers, Guy and Zach, at seven and eight respectively.

There will now be a suggested donation of £2 at each of Bath United’s Monday night Aviva A League games this season, with all the funds from these donations going to Bath Rugby Foundation. 

NOTE: The intended curtain raiser between Bishop Wordsworth's 1st XV and Beechen Cliff at 17:15 has now been cancelled.
