Rob Webber is relishing the prospect of his first Bath Rugby v Bristol derby as preparations for the new Aviva Premiership season get into full swing at The Rec this weekend.
Bath welcome their nearest rivals for the first home pre-season clash of the summer on Saturday (3pm).
And although the match may only be billed as a friendly, the fact that South West pride is on the line in the clubs’ first meeting for two years should make for a fascinating contest.
“It’s a big local derby and a great way to start our preparations for the season,” said five-cap England hooker Webber, who joined from Wasps 12 months ago.
