Bath rugby players joined Lord Bath to launch the the Lions of Bath public art project at Longleat House in Wiltshire.

The giant pride of 100 majestic lion sculptures will be on display from May within the city of Bath and surrounding areas. As event sponsors, Longleat and Bath Rugby are currently hard at work designing their lions for display. Pictured with Lord Bath are Bath rugby players, back row, left to right, Butch James, Danny Grewcok, Nick Abendanon, David Flatman and Matt Banahan and, front row, Olly Barkley, Lee Mears and Michael Claassens.
