Bath Combination invite top under-20s players to training ahead of Australian test
The Bath Combination’s top under-20s players have been handed the chance to force their way into the representative squad ahead of the annual crunch match with their Bristol counterparts.
A training session for the area’s young rugby talent will be held at Old Culverhaysians RFC’s Odd Down playing fields base on Monday night (6.30pm) and Combination clubs have been urged to send any players they believe can make the grade.
The Combination under-20s side will take on Narrabri RFC, a touring side from New South Wales, at Walcot on Sunday, March 10 (2.30pm) in preparation for their showdown with Bristol in April.
Head coach Dave Cobb said: "It’s my second year of being involved with the Bath Rugby Combination set up and I’m really excited about working with the local young rugby players again this season.

"We did a great job against Bristol last year but we had a very young side. This season I’m really confident that our players will be stronger and better equipped to compete with what is normally a very strong Bristol outfit.
"Our aim is to use the match against the Australian team as a chance to see our players in action and then select from this match a competitive and winning side to play Bristol in April.
"I believe the Combination experience is second to none for local players. It gives them a chance to play in a representative side with young players from other clubs and proudly pull on the Combination shirt and represent the city."
