Former Team Bath captain Tom Doughty makes Bath Rugby Premiership debut as Will Butt equals try-scoring record for Coventry
The hooker, who played in the first three BUCS Super Rugby seasons and was the competition’s leading scorer thanks to his threat at set-pieces, came off the bench at The Rec in the 34th minute to replace the injured Jacques du Toit.
Sale scored a late try to snatch a 24-20 victory but Doughty impressed on his Premiership debut, particularly with his lineout accuracy.
There are a host of former Team Bath BUCS Super Rugby players competing in the Greene King IPA Championship too, including centre Will Butt – on loan from Bath Rugby – who equalled Coventry Rugby’s try-scoring record for a game with four touchdowns in Saturday’s 34-10 victory over Jersey Reds.
A superb afternoon at Stade Santander International
🙌 Bonus point 34-10 win
