Bath Rugby can confirm club captain and England international Ben Spencer has committed his future to the Blue, Black and White.
The 30-year-old has excelled since arriving at The Rec from Saracens in 2020 and is an integral part of Johann van Graan’s squad.
“Since I arrived at Bath, Ben has stood out as a true leader, dedicated to succeed with this club,” the Head of Rugby said.
“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 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.
The scrum-half is renowned for his high-class kicking game and support play, which has contributed to him scoring over 50 tries in all competitions.
Capped four times by England, including in the 2019 Rugby World Cup final, Spencer has been a key component to the Bath backline and relishing the chance to be part of a group aiming 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.
“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.”
