Nine Exiles ready for Bath reunion
8:00am Saturday 11th August 2012 in Sport
London Welsh take on Bath at the Rec on Saturday as they continue their build-up to life in the Premiership.
No fewer than nine of Exiles squad have Bath connections. Captain Jonathan Mills began his career there, while Simon Whatling, Martin Purdy and Ed Jackson have also turned out for the West Country side.
Prop Billy Moss spent last season on loan at Old Deer Park, while winger Nick Scott made a huge impact after joining the Exiles at the turn of the New Year. Both have since made the switch to Welsh permanent.
New signings Daniel Browne, Paulica Ion and Matt Keyte have also worn the blue of Bath, and scrum half Keyte, is looking forward to making his Welsh debut against his former club. He said: “The crowd is always good fun, and so is playing against players that you know.”
