First time at the rugby? Here’s our bluffers guide for the essential info you can use to impress your friends, colleagues or clients…
One of the oldest clubs in existence, Bath Rugby originally formed all the way back in 1865. Unsurprisingly, with so much history, they’re well-decorated with six Premiership titles in total. However, the last time they finished top of the pack was back in 1996. The team will be travelling up to The Stoop from their West Country home ‘The Rec’.
A familiar name to even the most casual of rugby supporters will be the ‘Prince of Centres’, Jeremy Guscott. Now a renowned pundit, he made 268 1st XV appearances for Bath and won 65 England caps, scoring 30 Red Rose tries as well as a famous drop goal to beat South Africa in 1997.
In the current side, watch out for pacy England internationals Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson in the backs and the hard-tackling Sam Underhill and classy Taulupe Faletau in the back row. Rhys Priestland at fly half was the top points scorer in the league for the 2019-20 season.
Going in to the 2020/21 season, Harlequins had played against Bath 54 times in the Premiership. During that time, Quins have just edged out their rivals, winning 27 of their contests to Bath’s 26 (1 draw).
In the 2019-20 season, Bath did the Premiership double over Quins, winning both home and away while Quins took victory at the Rec in the Champion’s Cup.
The 2020/21 fixture between these two teams at The Twickenham Stoop is currently scheduled to take place on Saturday 29th May.
