Van Graan reveals his Bath captain for the season
NEWS: Bath Rugby have named Ben Spencer as club captain for the 2022/23 season.
The 30-year-old has made over 50 appearances for the Blue, Black and White since making a try-scoring debut against London Irish in 2020.
Spencer is favourite with supporters, winning the Bath Rugby Supporters’ Club Unsung Hero and Player of the Season awards, and is a determined individual who drives high standards within the group.
He has previously held a leadership role at the club and has previous experience of being on-field captain during his time at The Rec.
“Ben is a fantastic player, but most importantly a fantastic man,” Head of Rugby Johann van Graan said.
“He is a highly respected individual in our squad and cares deeply about his teammates, the support staff and Bath Rugby.
“On the field he is a competitor, leads by example and is a quality communicator, not only through word but via his actions too.
“Ben is consistent in his approach week-by-week and continues to push everyone to be the best version of themselves. We are delighted he will be our captain for the 2022/23 season.”
On being given the captaincy, Spencer said: “I’m hugely proud and honoured to be captain of the club.
“Ever since I joined the club it’s been an aim of mine to be in the leadership group. There are a lot of strong leaders within this group and hopefully we can work together this year and get the boys firing.”
