36 players travelled to Richmond with all getting a least 30 minutes of rugby in the three 30 minute spells.
“Even though we lost the match it was a worthwhile exercise for all the players and has given both the players and coaches a benchmark to work on for the next weeks of pre season.
“There was some very good teamwork and most of the performance was very promising given the short time players have known each other and worked together.
“Richmond RFC come to the University of Bath in August for a pre season camp and we value the relationship we are building with Richmond RFC.
We hope to grow this relationship and it could lead to more University of Bath graduates joining a well run club for the number they find work in London” said Aaron James , Head of Rugby.
