University of Bath name side for trip to Cardiff University

13 November 2019

Five Bath Rugby Academy players have been named in Louis Messer’s University of Bath side to face Cardiff University in BUCS Super League (kick-off 18:00).

The Blue and Gold travel to the Welsh capital with memories still fresh of their 52-25 victory in front of 6,500 supporters.

Eight of the XV that started at The Rec will line up against Cardiff at Llanrumney, including hooker Jordi den Hartog who scored a hat-trick that night. He is partnered in the front row by Bath Rugby Academy props Arthur Cordwell and Simone Elrick.

Rhys Davies comes in for his first start of the season at tighthead lock alongside Edoardo Balocco and Chris Barry returns at flanker.

Captain Ed Rimmer is partnered at half-back by Tom Pittman, while Max Ojomoh and Alex Nisbet continue at centre. Cal Barrett and Cardiff Blues Academy player Alex Varney return on wings and Ivor Powell Sporting Scholar George Worboys starts at full-back.
