Bath come so close in coastal encounter

Bath come so close in coastal encounter

Bath put in their best performance of the season against a strong Somerset Vikings side away at their Hornets RFC, Weston Super Mare base, they have fantastic facilities playing on the 4G playing surface. Bath started poorly giving Somerset a 12-0 head start with two converted tries in the space of the first few minutes, it looked like it could be a long day for Bath, but after scoring their first try Bath recovered well to take the lead by 20-12. The first try coming from debutante Navi Vosanibale worming his way over from close range, then soon after another debutante, Darrell Thompson worked his way over the line from close range from the acting half back position, on this occasion converted by Morgan Lewis. Bath took the lead after a characteristic rampaging run from prop Ben Shedwick to the line, the score stayed at 14-12 to Bath as the conversion was missed but it wasn’t long before Bath’s other prop Brandon Ball barged his way over and Morgan Lewis added the extras for a 20-12 lead.
At this point Somerset Vikings started to work their way back into the game after Bath had surprised them by their come back with two unconverted tries to draw level 20-20. It was Bath’s turn to strike next in this high scoring encounter and another debutante Jack Tanner was awarded a penalty try when he went over in the corner as way fouled in the act of scoring which gained Bath an 8 point try, but Somerset hit back with a converted try just before half-time with Bath having a skinny lead of 28-26.
It was a tighter second half points wise, but Somerset scored two unconverted tries to take them 34-28 ahead. Brandon Ball went in for his second try converted by Morgan Lewis which tied the scores at 34-34, but ex League 1 professional player Markus Brooker playing at loose forward for Somerset Vikings managed to break the defensive line on 40 metres for a run away try which was converted to give Somerset Vikings a 6 point lead, with the clock ticking down Navi Vosanibale kicked through on the first tackle and nearly regathered to score but he knocked on, Somerset got the ball from the scrum and the full time whistle was blown shortly after.
Head Coach, Matthew Bodey said, “Although we again suffered from a slow start to the game, I was impressed with how well the team came together to perform for the last 70 minutes, and I feel we were unlucky to not come away with at least a draw. With that being said, the pressure is now on the team to perform for the full 80 minutes against Oxford in 2 weeks time”.
Bath Rugby League now have a week off to rest a few injury niggles and hopefully have a few players back from injury when they face Oxford Cavaliers at their new home ground in Merton on Saturday 22nd June 2019.

Reading Raiders get the Raid at Bath


Reading Raiders get the Raid at Bath

It was a warm summer day at Melksham RFC’s Oakfields Ground and the hot conditions were a challenge for both sides but Reading Raiders got the win 46-20.
It was a tight contest in the opening stages but it was Reading who scored first with a converted try, 6-0 but it was not too long before Ben Shedwick went over for Bath with a rampaging run from 10 metres out, Sean Cole could not convert, 6-4.
Reading scored a couple more tries before the half time break with their full back Luke Schofield who was causing all sorts of problems and was unplayable at times, he was one of the main differences between the two sides. The half time score was 22-4 to Reading but Bath came out firing in the second half and scored first via debutante replacement forward Sam Pascoe barrelling his way over from close range, converted by Sean Cole, but again Bath allowed Reading to build some momentum with a couple of soft tries, but Bath stayed in the game with further tries from Jonny Green and Brandon Ball, Cole duly converting the final try.
The West of England League competition is highly competitive this season where anyone can beat anyone just about, the games are really good to watch particularly for the neutral. The club are now training twice per week to improve how they set up to play against different sides. On Saturday 8th June Bath have a trip to the seaside when they visit Somerset Vikings who play at Hornets RFC, Weston-Super-Mare. They have not lost yet this season so Bath will be looking to upset the form book.

The club train on Monday’s currently at Odd Down Sports Centre in Bath at 7pm. Please contact Chris Chatten on Mob: 07810 552196 or email: chris.chatten@bathrugbyleague.co.uk if you would like to partner/sponsor the club or indeed if you would like to play or get involved with Bath Rugby League in other ways.

On Saturday the club took a break from West of England Rugby League action entering two teams at Westbury 10s, Bath Rugby League Blues and Bath Rugby League Reds.

Bath Rugby League Blues won all their fixtures in the lead up to the Final and finished as finalists and runners up of the main competition just running out of steam in the final loosing out to favourites ‘The Donuts’ after coming from behind to beat them in the group stages.

Bath Rugby League Reds drew their first game with a late try from the opposition to level the scores, then lost to Bath Old Edwardians then beat ‘feel the heat’ to finish 5th.

Further results and photographs to follow. Thanks for the support of Roger Rhymes and Steve McCarthy for the photography.

Thank you to Westbury RFC for making us feel so welcome and making it a really enjoyable event. We would encourage more Rugby League and Rugby Union teams to come to next year’s event it is a fantastic setting and backdrop for this sort of event with a good vide with bands playing all evening.

Bath show improvements in exciting contest at Cheltenham

Bath show improvements in exciting contest at Cheltenham



Bath started brightly at Cheltenham and probably had the upper hand in the opening exchanges with both sides making errors and the score remained at 0-0 for a long period. Though Cheltenham gained the momentum with three converted tries in the first half to Bath’s one which was Sean Cole scooting in under the sticks for Nick Parks to convert with ease, for a half time score of 18-6 to Cheltenham, but Bath scored first in the second period via Rob Sully so it was game on at 18-10, but unfortunately Parks could not convert, and Cheltenham gained momentum again on the pitch and on the score board but Bath finished with a flourish scoring some well worked tries down the left flank via Ben Shedwick and Connor McPherson which threatened to get them back in the game, but Parks and Cieran Chester missed with the conversions for a final score of 34-18 to Cheltenham.

Plenty to work on in training this week, but the potential in the squad is huge and they have the opportunity to have some fun at Westbury 10s this weekend where the club are hoping to field two teams before getting back into Rugby League action with a West of England League fixture on Saturday 1st June at home to Reading Raiders at Melksham RFC, 2.30pm kick off. Reading had a big 78-6 win against Swindon this week so Bath will need to be on form to compete with the Raiders. The club train on Monday’s currently at Odd Down Sports Centre in Bath at 7pm. Please contact Chris Chatten on Mob: 07810 552196 or email: chris.chatten@bathrugbyleague.co.uk if you would like to partner/sponsor the club or indeed if you would like to play or get involved with Bath Rugby League in other ways.

Oxford too strong for young Bath Rugby League squad.


Oxford too strong for young Bath Rugby League squad.

Bath Rugby League opened their West of England League campaign with a home defeat to Oxford Cavaliers at Melksham RFC, going down 50-12. It took Bath some time to find their grove with lots of new players, most of them youngsters, playing their first game of Rugby League, and were 22-0 down at half time. The performance did pick up in the second half when Bath got a bit of confidence and cut out errors/penalties. Once Bath found their rhythm, they scored a couple of entertaining tries in the second period. Second row Tom Culshaw made a break centre field then sprinted down the right flank almost out sprinting the winger to score, but was caught just short of the line, and with most of the Oxford defence still getting back on side, Centre Jack Burnett scored in the next play and was able to get close to the posts making an easy conversion for full back Steve Grant. The second Bath try was a sublime play which would not look out of place in a professional game where half back Morgan Lewis stretched over not far from the posts with another successful conversion from the boot of Steve Grant.

It was unfortunate for Bath that exciting young prospect Sean Cole was removed with a suspected concussion early in the game after starting at hooker and winger George Jenkins was removed with a hamstring injury which upset the structure of how Bath were set up to play. No less than 5 players in the starting line up making their competitive debut, and 5 players making their competitive debut off the bench.

Plenty to work on in training this week, but the potential in the squad is huge and they have the opportunity to show improvements on Saturday 18th May when they face Cheltenham Phoenix away. The club train on Monday’s currently at Odd Down Sports Centre in Bath at 7pm. Please contact Chris Chatten on Mob: 07810 552196 or email: chris.chatten@bathrugbyleague.co.uk if you would like to partner/sponsor the club or indeed if you would like to play or get involved with Bath Rugby League in other ways.
