Bath United are in friendly action this afternoon as they take on Gloucester Rugby at the Rec (15:00 kick-off).
The match, as well as next week’s game against Harlequins, have been set up to provide players with the opportunity of game time at an important part of the season.
Second row Elliott Stooke will captain the side in a front five that contains Jamie Bhatti, Tom Doughty (currently on a bye week from his loan to Coventry), Christian Judge and Will Spencer, while an exciting Academy back row features Ethan Staddon, Xavier Hastings and Ewan Richards.
Ollie Fox and George Worboys pair up at half-back, and Max Ojomoh and Max Wright form a midfield partnership. Another Coventry loanee in Will Butt is named in back three alongside Gabe Goss and Gabriel Hamer-Webb.
There is an extended bench of 11 players.
A detailed catch up with Academy Manager Craig Lilley will follow early next week.
