All change in the front row for Bath Rugby

All change in the front row for Bath Rugby

Nick Auterac, Rob Webber and Henry Thomas will start in the front row for Bath Rugby tomorrow as they take on West Country rivals Exeter Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership at the Recreation Ground, kick-off 14.00.

Auterac, Webber and Thomas switch places with Paul James, Ross Batty and David Wilson, who started last Saturday's victory over Gloucester and are named on the bench.

Elsewhere in the pack Matt Garvey returns to the blindside flank, combining with Francois Louw and Leroy Houston to make up the back row, and Dominic Day joins captain Stuart Hooper in the engine room once more.

Chris Cook and George Ford continue to control the game from the half-backs, as Kyle Eastmond and Jonathan Joseph again form a dangerous midfield. Horacio Agulla comes onto the right wing, with Matt Banahan opposite him on the left and Anthony Watson remains at fullback.
