A number of Bath Rugby players reportedly face a disciplinary hearing after a post-training drinking session at the club's home ground got out of hand.

The Bath Chronicle reports that squad members streaked across the Recreation Ground in broad daylight and later heckled during a skills clinic that had been laid on for youngsters by the Aviva Premiership side.

Parents are said to have been left upset by the behaviour at the £60-a-head session, leading to an investigation being launched which could see as many as 11 players sanctioned.

The streaking is said to have taken place at a time when the ground was empty, but a fire extinguisher was also let off inside the stadium.

Bath are currently fifth in the Aviva Premiership table, 20 points adrift of leaders Saracens.
