Bath old boys return
January 6, 2000
Bath old boys Andy Nicol and Dave Hilton are set for a swift return to the Recreation Ground later this month.
Scrum-half Nicol, who captained Bath when they won the Heineken Cup in 1998, and his fellow Scottish international Hilton both joined Glasgow Caledonians last year.
And Bath, left with a fixture vacancy on January 29 Tetley's Bitter Cup fifth round day following their defeat at Gloucester, have now arranged to play Glasgow that day.
