Ben Spencer commits future to Bath
Bath have confirmed that club captain and England international Ben Spencer has signed a new contract with the West Country side
Head of rugby Johann van Graan said of the news: “Since I arrived at Bath, Ben has stood out as a true leader, dedicated to succeed with this club.
“He leads by example through his actions on the field and is a superb communicator amongst the group. He has the ability to run a game from scrum-half and with the exciting players we have around him, we have no doubt he will continue to be a significant member of our squad for years to come.”
Spencer, who is 30 years old, joined Bath from Saracens in 2020 and has played an important role in the team. He is an experienced Gallagher Premiership and European player with more than 200 top-flight matches to his name, as well as several title-winning campaigns.
He is known for his high-class kicking game and support play, which has contributed to him scoring over 50 tries in all competitions.
Spencer has been capped four times by England, including in the 2019 Rugby World Cup final, and has been a key member of the Bath backline. He is excited to be part of a group that is striving for success in the coming years.
“My family and I have loved our time at Bath to date and we are really looking forward to the future,” said Spencer “The direction the club and Johann have committed to is incredibly exciting. We have a group of players here who are determined to succeed and achieve great things. We will continue to work hard to progress each week as we strive towards those goals, but I believe the future is bright and it’s something I want to be part of.”

As someone who is living with a family of Ukrainian refugees, whose home and male family members are being hit with missiles daily, I'm shocked you are calling professional rugby players refugees. My last company closed their doors thanks to an unpaid tax bill, I don't think that makes me a refugee, do you? They lost their jobs, as have hundreds of thousands thanks to the economy and COVID and have been fortunate to find work albeit the other side of the world. I'm pretty sure they are living a good life. We are not going to feel sorry for themGo to comments
