Ex wing, now prop/hooker: Rich Bach led the club on their first tour to Scotland (07) and an impressive win at Jed Forest.
His happy smiling face lights up parties and he's often mistaken for Colin Talcon. Has developed into a vital part of the club and has been excellent on and off the field.
Has applied to be adopted by Magaret Day who must be tempted to swop him for Simon.

Rich was recently named Captain for a 3rd consecutive season, one behind Dai Newson’s record. This shows the high respect in which he is held at the Warriors. Since then however – he asked to be subbed off in the Worcester game as he was tired, then wouldn’t do tackle training with Dainosaur as he was scared, then had to be subbed in Abercraf before asking Gwil to do the 3 cheers as he couldn’t say Abercraf.
As well as rugby, Rich likes poker, pool and generally being in the mix. Another who needs to be careful he’s not mistaken for a Leprechaun.
