Ojomoh, 23, who made his 51st appearance for the club in last weekend’s 45-27 West Country derby win over Gloucester, has been flourishing so far during the 2023/24 season as displayed on Friday night as he made repeated linebreaks after being put through gaps by fly-half Finn Russell who he appears to have immediately sparked a strong partnership with.

Bath’s new head of recruitment Rob Burgess will certainly be a busy man over the coming weeks with the likes of Sam Underhill, Will Stuart, last weekend’s player of the match Will Muir, Joe Cokanasiga and Tom de Glanville all understood to be out of contract at the end of the season.
