University of Bath entertain Swansea this evening

19 February 2020

University of Bath welcome new BUCS Super Rugby opposition to the University of Bath Sports Training Village tonight as they entertain Swansea (18:30 kick-off, free entry).

The side includes Bath Rugby Senior Academy players Arthur Cordwell, George Worboys and Will Butt.

Swansea have adapted well to the top flight of student rugby since their promotion last season and currently sit one place above the Blue and Gold with three games of the season remaining. The side will be looking to avenge the 39-32 defeat to Swansea earlier in the season in a tightly fought match in South Wales. 

It is the penultimate home match of 2019-20 for Bath, who will be keen to get back to winning ways after last week’s tough contest against table-topping Durham.

There are just two changes to the starting XV, with co-captain Jordan Martin returning at No. 8 and James Fitzmaurice coming into the second row.
