Newcomers Bath Secure First Win

BATH University climbed off the bottom of the table with a close 28-27 victory over Southern Section rivals Ruislip Eagles.

Securing their first victory of the current campaign, Bath battled well to take a victory which underlines just how close that league looks set to be this year.

The game started well for Bath and they were three ahead by half time. Ruislip Eagles reduced the gap after the break but could not really turn the match in their favour, whereas Bath remained composed.

An intense effort in the final couple of minutes from the Eagles saw the scoreline stand at 27-28, but a last second six-metre save from Bath's goalkeeper ensured they held on for victory.

Elsewhere in the Southern Section, Great Dane maintained their lead with victory over Cambridge, but it was mightily close, with the Danes finally winning 32-29.
