FORMER Bath Rugby forward and Trowbridge RFC head coach Steve Ojomoh is being treated in intensive care after suffering a stroke.

The ex-England international, who picked up 12 caps between 1994-1998, is being cared for at Southmead Hospital.

The 48-year-old, also led Trowbridge to National Intermediate Cup glory Twickenham in 2014 during a successful four-season stint in charge of the club, which also saw them move from their base at Green Lane to their current Doric Park home.

Ojomoh represented Bath through the 1990s and the club released a statement on behalf of his family, providing an update on his condition.

It said: "Max, Ava and I (Lisa) thank you for all your kind messages and wishes. We can confirm Oj (Steve) has had a stroke, and he's not out of risk yet."

"The ICU team at Southmead are doing a fantastic job and we will keep everyone updated when we have news, but our focus is on Oj."

Trowbridge also posted their thoughts on their website, and wished him well for his recovery.

"Trowbridge RFC has received news that VP and former head coach Steve Ojomoh has been taken ill suddenly," it said.

"Everyone from the club sends Steve and his family our very best wishes for a speedy recovery."
