Bath Rugby on the road for 2016/17 pre-season

Bath Rugby will be taking to the road this pre-season as they build up to 2016/17, playing fixtures in England, Wales and Ireland.

On Saturday 13th August, the men in Blue, Black and White head up North to face Yorkshire Carnegie – who finished third in last season’s Greene King IPA Championship – at Ilkley RFC (k.o. 18:00).
      
The following weekend, on Saturday 20th August, Bath travel to Parc Eirias in North Wales for a meeting with Pro12 side Scarlets (k.o. 14:30). The venue, situated in Colwyn Bay, is home to the Wales U20 team and has hosted several international rugby matches.
         
The RDS Arena in Dublin will host Bath’s final pre-season fixture, as they take on three-time European champions Leinster on Friday 26th August (k.o. 19:30).  
      
"We're really pleased to be getting stuck into some tough games against very good opposition for pre-season," said First Team Coach Darren Edwards. "It'll give some of our new recruits, such as Taulupe Faletau and Luke Charteris, the chance to play alongside their new teammates ahead of what promises to be an exciting new season for Bath Rugby."
 
Work is currently underway at the Recreation Ground to increase the capacity by 1000 seats, which will see an even bigger and better venue in the heart of the city in preparation for a thrilling new season.  Fixtures for the 2016/17 Aviva Premiership will be announced on Thursday 7th July.
         
Tickets for these pre-season games can be purchased via the Yorkshire Carnegie, Scarlets and Leinster ticket offices respectively.
