Bath Rugby is delighted to today announce that Stuart Hooper will be the new Club captain for the 2011/12 season. Share
The 6' 5" lock joined Bath from Leeds Carnegie three years ago, and in that time has become an integral member of the squad, on and off the field.
West Country through and through having been born and raised in Devon, Stuart embodies the character, pride and determination that comes with pulling on the famous Blue, Black and White shirt. He made 26 appearances last season, starting every time. In total, he has played 87 times for Bath since he arrived in 2008, and has won the respect of the whole squad with his clever and effective line out work and outstanding work ethic.
