WATCH LIVE: University of Bath visit Hartpury in BUCS Rugby Champs semi-finals

14 March 2017

The University of Bath men’s 1st XV play their biggest match of the season so far tonight when they visit local rivals Hartpury College in the BUCS Rugby Championships semi-finals (6.30pm).

The winners of the game, which you can watch live on the YouTube video below, will book a trip to Twickenham Stadium for the final against either Exeter University or Loughborough University on March 30.

Hartpury were crowned as champions of the inaugural BUCS Super Rugby league this season but were made to battle for their two victories against the Blue and Gold, who reached the last four with a thrilling 20-19 victory at Durham University last week.
