Attwood to start against Saracens for Bath Rugby

DAttwood-Bath-3103

Dave Attwood will make his first Bath Rugby appearance since December on Friday night when they take on Saracens in the Aviva Premiership at the Recreation Ground, kick-off 19.45.

Attwood is partnered in the second row by Charlie Ewels, with the front row trio of Nathan Catt, Rob Webber and Henry Thomas continuing following the victory against Gloucester last time out. Amanaki Mafi returns to the starting line-up at number eight, flanked by Matt Garvey and captain Francois Louw.

Chris Cook and George Ford continue to pull the strings from the half-backs, as Ollie Devoto and Jonathan Joseph resume their midfield partnership.

Last weekend's double try-scorer Semesa Rokoduguni – who has beaten the most defenders in the Premiership this season – starts on the right wing with Horacio Agulla coming onto the left, and Anthony Watson is at fullback.
