11 May 2024

The University of Bath men’s rugby club finished their season with a trophy after beating Chippenham RFC 31-25 in a top-quality Bath Combination Cup Final at The Rec.

Ed Shepherdson scored two first-half tries, both converted by James Beverley who also kicked a penalty as Bath – who led 7-0 and then trailed 15-10 – went into the break with a narrow 17-15 lead.

Beverley converted two further tries from Elliott Powell and Jon Taylor-Anton but Bath could not rest until the final whistle as Chippenham replied with unconverted tries on both occasions to stay in contention throughout an excellent contest.
