Career details:

Prop forward Clem Boyd only spent one season with Bath and competed in only 22 matches, with sixteen starts and six replacement appearances. Signed as cover at prop from Bedford Blues, Clem found himself in the first team almost immediately as injury ruled out Victor Ubogu, firstly from Bath’s line up and then from England’s World Cup challenge. Clem made his Bath Rugby debut in the 24-3 win over Keynsham in a pre-season friendly at Crownfields in August, before lining up for his first league game in a 30-10 win over Harlequins at the Stoop alongside Mark Regan and Chris Horsman in the front row. Indeed, Boyd made twelve starting appearances in succession at the beginning of the campaign, before the return of Ubogu saw him slip to the substitute’s bench. He did return for the 9-10 Heineken Cup defeat at Swansea (in preference to John Mallett) and kept his place for the following weeks clash with Leicester. However, after that it was mainly as cover that he was seen at the Rec. with final appearance coming in the 55-12 friendly thumping of Saracens. He left the club to return to his native Ireland shortly after the Saracens victory.
