' ... Bath relying on Beechem and a few players from the Uni, is not going to produce a stream of top class players coming through the academy for the future. IMO'

Beechen is, essentially, an Academy in its own right. They recruit players from far and wide. Likewise the University. Bath don't recruit 'from' the University - they recruit 'to' the University. Both set-ups give them a much larger pool of players who they can monitor. The Bath coaches are involved at Beechen/Uni and many of the players train at Farleigh as part of their programme.
