The limited-edition shirt the Bath Rugby players will wear at The Clash this year has been revealed.
The shirt has been created in conjunction with Bath Rugby Foundation, the charitable arm of Bath Rugby, and features images of inspirational individuals who form the Foundation’s own very special XV.
All fifteen have overcome the odds and achieved remarkable success while taking part in programmes run by Bath Rugby Foundation.
Matt Garvey, Club captain at Bath, said: “As players, we know that every time we step onto the field we are representing everyone in Bath and we’re honoured to be taking these fifteen amazing individuals onto the Twickenham pitch with us.
“The whole squad knows about the Bath Rugby Foundation and the work it does with some inspirational young people in and around Bath, so it’s great to recognise them in this way at The Clash.”
The shirt, which has been designed by Canterbury of New Zealand, Official Kit Supplier to the Club, is limited edition and will raise funds through auctions and raffles for Bath Rugby Foundation after the game.
Bath Rugby Foundation CEO, Lynne Fernquest, said: “Watching Bath Rugby run out at The Clash with our special Bath Rugby Foundation XV on the shirts will be an incredibly special moment, not only for the individuals, their family and friends, but also everyone connected to the Foundation.
“All fifteen have achieved success against the odds and we’re very proud of them all. They all deserve to be highlighted on the big stage.”
