Bath Rugby team to face Exeter Chiefs

Bath Rugby have made three changes ahead of the final Aviva Premiership game of 2016 against Exeter Chiefs on New Year’s Eve at the Recreation Ground, kick-off 15:00.

All three changes come in the pack, where Tom Dunn is named at hooker, supported either side by Nathan Catt and Max Lahiff. The versatile Matt Garvey moves into the second row, where he will be joined by Dave Attwood, who was one of Bath’s four try scorers last weekend against Wasps.

Tom Ellis and Zach Mercer are the new faces in the back row at blindside flanker and number eight, with Francois Louw continuing his run back in the team at openside flanker.

In an unchanged backline, Tom Homer continues at full-back with the wings occupied by Aled Brew and Semesa Rokoduguni. Ben Tapuai, who scored his first try for the Club last time out, continues his partnership in the centre with Jonathan Joseph, while Kahn Fotuali’i and George Ford are once again the half-back pairing.

There is also a welcome return to the squad for England international Anthony Watson, who could make his first appearance for Bath since the start of October from the bench.

Todd Blackadder, Director of Rugby said: “The team are really looking forward to this weekend and are determined to end the calendar year on a high. There are areas where we will need to improve on from Wasps, but I have every confidence that they can do that on Saturday.

“It has been a hectic first half of the season with injuries and call-ups, but the squad have shown a great deal of character to get the results needed week after week to remain in the top three.

“We are now nearly back to full strength, so it is important that we give the likes of Ross, Luke and Toby the opportunity to recuperate for a crucial period for the Club in January.”

Unavailable for selection: Matt Banahan, Ross Batty, Dan Bowden, Luke Charteris, David Denton, Charlie Ewels, Taulupe Faletau, Rhys Priestland, Henry Thomas.

Brew staying with Bath Rugby

Bath Rugby winger Aled Brew has signed a new contract extension that will keep him at the Club until the end of the 2017-2018 season.

The 30 year-old has brought in a wealth of experience and enthusiasm since joining on a short-term contract in September, scoring his first try in the 38-3 victory against Cardiff Blues last week.

Brew, who has won nine caps for Wales, spent two seasons with French side Biarritz in between three successful spells with Newport Gwent Dragons, where he amassed over 200 points for the Welsh side.

On pledging his future to Bath Rugby, a delighted Brew said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Bath over the last few months and have settled in really well, so I’m really happy to be staying for at least another season and a half.

“I’ve really enjoyed getting a good run of games under my belt – it’s a great squad to be part of and we’re looking forward to pushing on over the coming months.”

Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, added: “We are delighted to have extended Aled’s contract with the Club. He has bought so much to the team on and off the field since his arrival and will continue to form an integral part of the squad over the next couple of seasons.

Rec court decision paves the way for a bigger and better Bath Rugby stadium!!!!!!

A court decision has paved the way for Bath Rugby to build a bigger and better stadium on the Rec.
A scheme originally set out by the Charity Commission in 2013 has been clarified and finalised to determined how the famous piece of land can be managed by The Recreation Ground Trust.
The decision made by the First-tier Tribunal (General Regulatory Chamber - Charity) confirms that the Trust has the powers of "absolute owner".
It can "sell, lease, license or otherwise dispose of" all or any part of the Rec as it works to achieve its charitable objectives.
This means the Trust could lease more land to Bath Rugby than they currently occupy, which the club has always said would be essential to their vision of a new stadium in the heart of the city.

Bath Rugby team to face Harlequins

Australian centre Ben Tapuai will make his starting debut for Bath Rugby on Sunday when they take on Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership at the Stoop, kick-off 15:15.

Tapuai joins Max Clark in the midfield, who had an impressive return from injury in the win against Bristol last weekend. Out wide Aled Brew comes back into the starting line-up on the left wing with Semesa Rokoduguni, England’s Man of the Match against Fiji, on the right. Tom Homer provides the threat from fullback, as Dan Bowden starts at fly-half for the first time this season and Darren Allinson continues at scrum-half.

Up front, Tom Dunn starts between Nathan Catt and Kane Palma-Newport in the front row, with the powerful pairing of Matt Garvey and Dave Attwood behind them in the engine room. Tom Ellis on the openside, Guy Mercer on the blindside and Zach Mercer coming in at number eight form the back row.

Unavailable for selection: Nick Auterac, Luke Charteris, Chris Cook, David Denton, Charlie Ewels, Taulupe Faletau, Robbie Fruean, George Ford, Kahn Fotuali’i, Jonathan Joseph, Francois Louw, Rhys Priestland, David Sisi, Elliott Stooke, Henry Thomas, Anthony Watson.

Bath Rugby team to face Bristol Rugby

Max Clark and Taulupe Faletau both make their return from injury tomorrow night as Bath Rugby return to Aviva Premiership action against their nearest rivals, Bristol Rugby at the Recreation Ground, kick-off 19.45.

Faletau, who was released by Wales to train with Bath and be available for selection this week, starts at number eight, with Guy Mercer on the openside and Tom Ellis on the blindside.

Elsewhere in the pack Elliott Stooke partners Matt Garvey in the engine room, with Nathan Catt and Kane Palma-Newport scrumming down in the front row either side of Ross Batty at hooker.

Clark returns to the midfield at outside centre, Matt Banahan linking up with him at number 12. Welsh duo Darren Allinson and Rhys Priestland, who is named as co-captain for the game, continue their half-back partnership, whilst Darren Atkins and Jack Wilson are named on the wings. Tom Homer completes the line-up from fullback.

From the bench, Tom Dunn could make his 50th appearance if called upon, and Australian centre, Ben Tapuai, who arrived at the Club this week, could make his debut.

Speaking ahead of the game, Todd Blackadder said: “We can’t wait to get out there on Friday, and it’s great to have Taulupe Faletau and Max Clark back amongst the mix – we’ve actually had a bit of a selection headache this week, which was an interesting change for us! We’ve got to pick ourselves back up after the disappointing start to the Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign and get back on the horse for this next block of crucial Aviva Premiership games. We know how much this game means to our supporters, and we’re going to do all we can to make sure they leave the Rec with a smile on their face tomorrow night.

“Henry Thomas is unavailable due to the knee injury he picked up against Scarlets. It seemed like a pretty innocuous bang at the time, but it looks like he’ll be out for the rest of the season. We’re really disappointed for him - he’d been playing some great rugby, but our medical team will do the best job in looking after him and getting him back on the pitch when he’s ready.”

Unavailable for selection: Dave Attwood, Nick Auterac, Luke Charteris, Chris Cook, David Denton, Charlie Ewels, George Ford, Kahn Fotuali’i, Jonathan Joseph, Francois Louw, Semesa Rokoduguni, David Sisi, Henry Thomas, Anrthony Watson, Jeff Williams.

Bath team to face Worcester

We’re looking forward to seeing how Dan Bowden, Anthony Watson and Henry Thomas go as they return from injury, and also how Matt Banahan goes at outside centre.

“Obviously we were really pleased with the result against Newcastle last weekend, but we’ve not got carried away this week. There is still lots for us to work on, and the squad have applied themselves really well as we’ve prepared for the visit of Worcester.”

Something for the Bath fans to smile about

England stars Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson have both agreed long-term extensions with Bath Rugby that will see the pair stay at the club until at least 2019.

Kahn Fotuali’i signs for Bath Rugby

Bath Rugby is delighted to welcome Samoan scrum-half Kahn Fotuali’i into the squad for the 2016/17 season.

A consistent, skilful half-back, Fotuali’i is dynamic around the field, and a clever manager of the game. He has a huge wealth of experience to call on, having previously represented the Crusaders, Ospreys and Northampton Saints.

He made his try-scoring, match winning debut for Samoa in 2010 against Japan, and has gone on to represent his nation a further 27 times to date, most recently at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

“I’m really excited to be joining Bath,” Fotuali’i said. “They have an exciting, attacking ethos, which I’m looking forward to being part of, and I really like the focus that is put on individual development of players. You can always continue to learn as a player, so I’m looking forward to getting started and preparing for the season ahead.”

Toby Booth, First Team Coach, added: “Kahn is a fantastic player, and a serious competitor who loves to win. This, along with his experience, will bring added leadership and competitiveness to our squad, which will no doubt push it forward.”

Bath Rugby can confirm that the re-arranged Round 9 Aviva Premiership game against Sale Sharks will now take place on Saturday 23rd April, kick-off 15.15 at the Recreation Ground.

With Sale losing their European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final to Montpellier, it means that the weekend set aside for European Semi-Finals is now free for both clubs. Moving the game to the 23rd gives both clubs a longer turnaround between games.

Another year for Jeff

Jeff Williams has extended his contract with Bath Rugby, which will see the winger stay at the Club for another season.

The former England Sevens star made his debut for the West Country side in the bonus point win over London Irish in November, and has settled in well to life at Bath.

“I’m really enjoying being at Bath, and I’m excited to be staying another year,” said Williams. “It’s a great environment to be involved in and I feel like I’m constantly improving as a player. Bath is a fantastic city to live in, and I’ve really settled in well so I didn’t have any hesitation about staying.”

First Team Coach, Toby Booth, added: “Jeff is a brilliant person to have in the squad. His enthusiastic attitude is infectious and he is pushing himself every day to improve. As he acclimatises himself more with the 15-man game he will be even more effective for us, so we’re looking forward to working with him for another season and allowing him to continue developing and challenging for a place in the matchday squad.”

Great news!

Bath Rugby has received four-year planning consent for their stands at the Recreation Ground, including a new enhanced temporary West Stand and renewal of permissions for North, East and South Stands.

The consent, given at a B&NES Development Management Committee meeting today, will increase capacity at the Rec from 13,500 to 14,500 and will allow the Club to focus on working towards a permanent solution at the Rec.

Tarquin McDonald, Managing Director of Bath Rugby, said: “We are delighted with today’s decision. By consolidating planning for the next four years, we wish to move the debate away from planning around the temporary stands - which need to be renewed every year or two - and focus on working with all stakeholders within the City to produce a full development proposal. Bath Rugby remains committed to providing a world-class facility in the centre of Bath; one which provides enhanced use for the community and which reinvigorates the riverside area in the heart of the City."

McDonald added: "In the meantime, the much-needed redevelopment of the West Stand will provide our supporters with the best possible game experience, with improved sight lines, more leg room and enhanced facilities. In addition, the increased capacity will allow more people to enjoy rugby at the Rec and bring in an extra £5 million to the local economy over the life of the consent."

Half time lead thrown away again by Bath Rugby

The former Wales playmaker James Hook kicked five penalties as Gloucester fought back in difficult conditions to beat Bath 15-11 and leap to fifth place in the Premiership table – if just for 24 hours.

Losing at home to their West Country rivals is hard enough to bear but this was also Bath’s sixth defeat in a row in all competitions.

A meagre losing bonus point leaves last year’s free-scoring Premiership finalists languishing in ninth position, having lost seven of their 10 league games. Their points came from an early Dom Day try and two penalties by the full-back Tom Homer.

Bath Rugby is delighted to confirm the signing of second row Elliott Stooke from Aviva Premiership and West Country rivals Gloucester Rugby.

Bath Rugby is delighted to confirm the signing of second row Elliott Stooke from Aviva Premiership and West Country rivals Gloucester Rugby.

22-year-old Stooke has represented England throughout the age groups, including a call-up to the England Saxons in January 2014.

The lock, who originally hails from Worcester, has made nearly 70 appearances for the Cherry and Whites since his debut in the 2012/13 season, and has impressed with his hard work and influential play both in the tight and the loose.

“Elliott is a powerful athlete and we’re looking forward to seeing him continue his development with us here at Bath,” said Mike Ford, Head Coach at Bath Rugby. “He has a great skillset for a young player, along with a great attitude, and I have no doubt he’ll fit into the Club really well.”

Speaking of the move, Stooke commented: “It’s been a hard decision to make, but I’m really excited about the move to Bath. They’re an ambitious club, and the coaches work incredibly hard to help develop each individual player at the same time as making sure the team is growing. It’s a hugely talented squad to join up with, and it is a great environment for a young player like myself to be part of.

“I’d like to thank everyone associated with Gloucester for the support they have given me over the years, and I’ll be making sure I do all I can to play my part to make the rest of this season successful before I leave.”

David Wilson has extended his contract with Bath Rugby, the Club are very pleased to confirm.

One of the top tighthead props in English rugby, Wilson has become the cornerstone of the West Country side’s pack, making over 120 appearances since he joined ahead of the 2009/10 season.

“Bath is a great place to be right now, and I have a strong bond with the Club,” said Wilson. “There is a fantastic drive amongst the squad and coaches to succeed, and it’s exciting to be part of that. As a team we work hard to keep getting better, and I’m really looking forward to the coming seasons.”

A very powerful scrummager who is skilful with ball in hand in the loose, Wilson’s incredible work ethic and all-round game have seen him earn 44 caps for England, the most recent coming in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

First Team Coach, Neal Hatley, said: “Davey is the ultimate professional, and we’re really pleased that he’s staying at Bath. He’s an important member of the squad for us, not just for his scrummaging ability, but also the impacts he makes around the field and also his experience in the tight.”

Awesome news - Bath Rugby is delighted to confirm that centre Kyle Eastmond has renewed his contract with the Club.

Eastmond, 26, is widely regarded as one of the most exciting playmakers in the European game. As part of an outstanding Bath Rugby backline, he says the choice to stay at the Club was ultimately an easy one to make.

“I feel like we’ve started a really exciting time at Bath,” said Eastmond, who joined the Club from rugby league side St Helens in 2011. “I don’t think there are many rugby clubs with such a positive training and playing environment that’s focused on making us the best players we can be, which makes this the ideal place for me to be playing.”

“Kyle is a big part of our drive for success here at Bath Rugby, so I’m very happy he’s committed himself to the Club,” said Head Coach Mike Ford. “He’s part of a young backline here that’s already achieved some great things, but there is a lot more to come from them.”

It's been a cold dark winter for Bath Rugby but this bit of news will cheer you up!

Bath Rugby is delighted to announce that flanker Francois Louw has extended his contract with the Club.

The new extension means the South African will be with the West Country side until at least 2019.

“Francois is one of the best players in the world, and we’re obviously delighted that he’s staying with us,” said Head Coach, Mike Ford. “His playing ability speaks for itself, but he also brings huge amounts of leadership, experience and intelligence to the Club off the field, which are invaluable as we continue to develop.”

An integral and influential presence in the back row, Louw is highly regarded across the rugby world, especially for his ability to create havoc at the breakdown. He has made nearly 80 appearances for the Club, and won over 40 international caps for the Springboks – most recently at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

“I’m really excited to have extended my stay at Bath,” added Louw. “It is a great environment to be involved in, and also, importantly, my family are very happy and settled in the city. Everyone is committed to improving and being the best they can be here, and I’m looking forward to the next few years and playing my part in the Club’s future.”
