It’s just not cricket

It appears that Bath Rugby and Bristol Shoguns are in “exploratory discussions” over potentially merging. Presumably this is a safety net in case, as looks likely, one or other of them gets relegated at the end of the season.

As a Bath born & bred sporadic supporter, I’d think be a bit annoyed if the two teams merged and buggered off to play somewhere else (Ashton Gate), although if that’s what it takes for Bath to survive, then so be it.

    merging of any sporting clubs is bad.. but whenever there is a chance one may get relegated they wheel out this type of story to make the supporters come to the matches and kick up a fuss etc, etc..

    They deliberately didn’t announce this until after the tickets for Sunday’s match at Ashton Gate had already sold out.

    Apparently it’s will be the biggest attendance at a premiership league came since it turned professional.
