There will be live television coverage when the University of Bath men’s 1st XV visit West Country rivals Exeter University tonight (Wednesday) for their penultimate BUCS Super Rugby league match of the season.
The eagerly-anticipated derby at Sandy Park, which kicks off at 7.45pm, will be shown live by Free Sports TV which can be found on Freeview channel 95, Sky channel 424, Freesat channel 252, TalkTalk TV channel 95 and BT channel 95.
Exeter are challenging for the title and were impressive winners when they visited the Sports Training Village earlier this season but Team Bath, sponsored by IKON Construction and supported by Investigo, go into the game on the back of a confidence-boosting 50-25 victory over Nottingham Trent.
There are two changes to the team that started the game last week, with prop Austin Hay and fly-half Will Flinn coming into the Team Bath XV. Trendell Sports Scholar Beck Cutting, who has been training with the England U20 Six Nations squad, is among the replacements.
