About the owl We are delighted to welcome Bath Rugby’s new winger “Hoops” to our scrum of supersized owls. Hoops is wearing the new 2018/19 blue, black and white home kit – which is sure to be a “hoot” with supporters. The Bath Rugby first team will all sign Hoops before he is auctioned off for charity in October. Vicki Smith of Bath Rugby said “We are proud to sponsor one of the Minerva owls – it’s a great way to show off our wonderful city and its rich heritage to residents and visiting tourists.”
