University of Bath prepare for Exeter test

27 November 2019

It is a big South West derby at the University of Bath Sports Training Village tonight as Team Bath take on Exeter in BUCS Super Rugby (kick-off 18:30pm, free entry).

The Blue and Gold will be keen to avenge their defeat in the reverse fixture on the opening day of the season and also bounce back quickly from last week’s home reverse to Cardiff Met.

Exeter go into the match on the back of a resounding 71-17 victory over Northumbria which strengthened their grip on second spot in the table.

A reshuffled Team Bath backs line-up sees James Richardson start at full-back for the first time this season, while Cal Barrett moves from the wing to partner Sam Kennaugh in the centres. Elliot Bancroft takes the number 11 shirt.

Will French returns at tighthead prop and Cameron Keys starts at number eight in the only changes to the pack.
