The University of Bath men’s rugby team have reached the final of the Bath Combination Cup after a 27-22 semi-final victory over a spirited Walcot RFC.
The University team were made to work hard for their win but eventually came through with some excellent teamwork.
Trueman Sullivan, Peter Morallee, Paul John and Miles Davis scored tries with some accurate place kicking from Luke Giles and Chris Lewis contributing to Bath’s 27 points
Ian Thomas, captain on the day, said “It was physically a very hard match. We haven’t played together for five weeks and the hot weather and Walcot’s determination meant we had to work extra hard for our win.
“We’d like to thank Walcot RFC supporters for their hospitality throughout the day and the referee, who filled in at last minute so the game could take place.”
The University of Bath now meet the winners of Frome v Trowbridge for the final at Bath Rugby’s famous Recreation Ground on Wednesday 28 April
