Bath Rugby make three changes for derby day

ODevoto-Bath-1505

Bath Rugby have made three changes to the side which defeated Harlequins last Friday for tomorrow’s Aviva Premiership derby match against Gloucester at the Rec (kick-off 15.30).

Semesa Rokoduguni, Ollie Devoto and Rob Webber will all line up against the Cherry and Whites in the final match of the regular season.

Fresh from his try-scoring exploits in the Army v Navy fixture at Twickenham last Saturday, Rokoduguni is named on the wing alongside Matt Banahan, with Anthony Watson at fullback.  

Devoto comes in at number 13, outside Kyle Eastmond at 12. Peter Stringer and George Ford continue their half-back partnership for the fourth successive match.  

Webber packs down at hooker, with Paul James at loosehead and tighthead David Wilson back for his second match since making a successful return from injury in Round 21. Dave Attwood and Dominic Day start in the second row.

Openside Francois Louw captains the side in his 70th appearance for the Club in an unchanged back row also featuring blindside Sam Burgess and number eight Leroy Houston.
