Team Bath head to old rivals Loughborough for last BUCS Super Rugby match of 2017

13 December 2017

The University of Bath men’s 1st XV will be looking to go into the Christmas break on a positive note when they visit old rivals Loughborough in the last BUCS Super Rugby match of 2017 tonight.

The Blue and Gold, sponsored by IKON Construction and supported by Investigo, have lost just one of their last five games and are now only two points behind fifth-placed Loughborough in the league table.

They have made just one change to the XV that started last week’s 32-24 home victory over Durham, with United States international Louis Mulholland replacing Luca Petrozzi at scrum-half.
