Bath's Biggs boosted by England Saxons experience
Tom Biggs has returned to Bath Rugby’s Farleigh House base with renewed vigour after spending two weeks away with England Saxons.
The winger missed being part of the Bath team which booked a place in the last four of the LV= Cup with victory at Gloucester last Saturday.
Instead, he was more than 250 miles further north at Newcastle’s Kingston Park, where the Saxons’ fell to a 13-9 defeat against Scotland A – a game which saw Rec team-Tom Heathcote kick a conversion and two penalties for the victors.
“It’s pleasing to be coming back into a winning squad who seem to really be enjoying their rugby,” said 28-year-old Biggs, who was joined in the Saxons 23 by fellow Bath back Kyle Eastmond.

“It’s good to work in a new environment with a different group of players and getting the opportunity to represent your country is important.
“It was an exciting group of players and a really nice bunch off the field too.
“It’s refreshing to get a bit of a break and to come back with a real buzz and feel some excitement around the club.
“That England representation has been put to bed for now and hopefully I can build on my performances with Bath until the end of the season and aim for a place in the summer tour.”
An early try from Duncan Taylor plus Heathcote’s eight-point haul put Scotland in front and, despite Leicester’s George Ford – strongly linked with a summer move to Bath – hauling Saxons back into the game with three penalties, they could not finish the job.
