Career details:

Australian international lock Warwick Waugh spent only one season with Bath Rugby in the professional era, and its fair to say that the Rec. faithful never got to see the true ability of the giant second row. Signed from the Queensland Reds at the start of the 1999/2000 season, Warwick was expected to claim one of the second row spots as his own. However, the performances of Martin Haag (enjoying an Indian summer to his career) and the young Steve Borthwick ensured that there was no room for Waugh. The affable Australian made his Bath debut in the 13pts-21pts pre-season defeat at Bridgend in August 1999, going on to make a league debut as a replacement for Haag in the defeat against Sale Sharks in October. He was to make just 14 appearances for the club (ten starts) in a relatively short spell, and cross for a solitary try, in the 55pts-12pts thumping of Saracens during a mid-season friendly in what was to prove his last game for Bath. Capped on eight occasions by his country, Warwick was a member of the Australian squad knocked out of the 1995 Rugby World Cup by England. He made his Barbarians debut in 2000 against Cardiff and after leaving Bath he joined French side Beziers, after a brief spell back in Australia with the ACT Brumbies. Warwick joined Irish inter-provincial outfit Connacht for the 2002/2003 season. Famed forever at Bath Rugby for baking and selling Bath Rugby Christmas Cakes in the winter of 1999!
