Bath 15 Gloucester 13: Davies rotation backfires as Ford helps hosts to victory

Nigel Davies saw his rotation plans backfire as George Ford kicked Bath into second place in the Aviva Premiership table.

Gloucester coach Davies had left out several key players from his side in last weekend’s Heineken Cup trip to Munster with the aim of keeping them fresh for the West Country derby.

England release Bath Rugby duo Dave Attwood and Kyle Eastmond ahead of Gloucester clash

Dave Attwood and Kyle Eastmond could both feature for Bath Rugby in Friday night’s Aviva Premiership derby against Gloucester after being released from England duty today.

Lock Attwood and centre Eastmond have been at a training camp with Stuart Lancaster’s national squad this week but the duo are among the ten players who will return to their clubs this weekend.

Their release, however, does not automatically mean they will miss out on selection for the first of England’s QBE internationals against Australia on Saturday, November 2.

Amlin Cup group table after 2 rounds

Bath Rugby top Amlin Challenge Cup group with win over Dragons

Bath Rugby ensured their winning start to their European campaign continued with a determined 26-10 victory over Newport Gwent Dragons at the Rec this afternoon.

The win sees them finish the first two rounds at the top of Pool Two in the Amlin Challenge Cup, three points clear of today’s opponents.

The home side started brightly, but Tom Heathcote’s early shot at goal skewed just wide of the posts from a difficult angle.
The miss didn’t deter Bath though, and they kept up the pressure in the Newport half and after some patient build-up and quick passing along the back line, Academy winger Richard Lane found himself in plenty of space to gallop over the line unopposed. Heathcote was on target with the conversion taking the score to 7-0 after seven minutes.

European campaign off to winning start for Bath Rugby

Bath Rugby got their Amlin Challenge Cup campaign off to a winning start tonight with an edgy 6-15 win over Bordeaux-Begles.

Bordeaux were quick to try and exert some early pressure on the game, taking play right up to the Bath try-line, but the defence held steady. They made their own forays into Bordeaux territory, and a powerful run from Will Spencer through the midfield led to the first points of the night when the home side were pinged for not rolling away. George Ford stepped up to land the penalty, giving the visitors an early lead. 0-3.

Tom Biggs to leave Bath Rugby for Hull FC at the end of the season

Tom Biggs is to leave Bath Rugby at the end of the season and make a cross-code switch to join Super League side Hull FC.

Rumours linking Biggs with a move first arose a month ago when Hull owner Adam Pearson revealed his club were chasing a rugby union player with international experience.

Bath head coach Mike Ford moved quickly to quash the reports but the club has now confirmed Hull-born Biggs’ exit, with the former England Saxons winger heading north next summer.

“Hull approached me and I’m very excited to have the chance to try my hand at league, and especially with my local club,” said the 29-year-old.

Bath Rugby beaten as superb Sale Sharks show their teeth

MATCH REPORT: Sale Sharks 19 Bath Rugby 13

Bath Rugby fell to a disappointing Aviva Premiership defeat against a determined Sale Sharks side this evening.

The visitors had several chances to win the match in the second half at The AJ Bell Stadium but the lack of cutting edge – coupled with a dogged Sharks defensive display – ensured they all went begging.
