Have you ever wondered what it’s like behind the scenes, or just fancy being on TV? Well, here’s your chance - and the best bit is, the programme is all about Bath. The Rugby Tonight show is recorded live at the studio in the Olympic Park from 8pm to 9.30pm.

New Committee Member

Jen Wilcox

Jennifer Wilcox has been co-opted to join the BRSC Committee with immediate effect. She will assist with Social Media advertising and messaging and also with Supporters’ Club marketing.


Jen lives and works in central Bath, just a stone's throw away from The Rec. She works in marketing and enjoys good comedy, live music and dog walking at the RSPCA.


Jen has a real passion for rugby and has been a Bath Rugby season ticket holder for over 7 years. On match days, she can be found in the open stand with a cider in hand cheering on our boys (and praying for sunshine!) and Jen thinks that there is no better atmosphere than that of the Rec at full capacity. Allez Bath!
