    Recently awarded capsMay 19, 2010 @ 3:50pm
    The recent presentation of caps to Danny Grewcock, Lee Mears, David Barnes and Andy Beattie in recognition of 200 appearances for Bath Rugby (Awards Ceremony May 10th 2010)was coincidental with the thoughts of a member of the BPP Committee on the subject of 'caps'.

    Archives suggest that caps had been presented from as long ago as 1888 as there are team photograhs of that date and 1891 showing players with caps, and our archivist says that caps were very much in evidence in the 1980's but that they appeared to tail off in the early 1930's.

    This leaves a huge gap between that time and when the game went professional, and our Committee member researching the subject feels that a great number of Past Players who played in that period have similar qualifications and might well be interested in purchasing/being presented with a cap were it to be available to them.

    Meanwhile we extend our congratulations to the four named above on their achievement and invite questions and your comments on the whole subject.
