Six of the most famous names in Bath Rugby’s history have been inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame.
The six were revealed at a a glamourous black tie dinner held at the club’s Farleigh house HQ as part of Bath Rugby’s 150th anniversary.
Spanning four generations, past players Frank Soane (1881-1898), Major Ronald Gerrard (1930-1941), Roger Spurrell (1979-1986), John Hall (1981-1995) and Jeremy Guscott (1984-2000), and former Head Coach Jack Rowell (1978-1994) have been honoured as the inaugural inductees.
The night, hosted by Jonny Gould, was attended by some of the city’s most well-known faces and, of course, key club figures from the past and present.
With the club having such a rich and distinguished history, and a variety of deserving candidates, selecting the inaugural inductees was a thought-provoking process.
“These six men who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame have all had a profound effect on the club and it is therefore fitting that they have been honoured in this way,” said managing director Tarquin McDonald.
“It only seems proper that a club with such an illustrious history as Bath has a Hall of Fame to recognise all the incredible people who have taken us through the years, and what better time to create it than in such a significant year as our 150th anniversary?”
