Bath Rugby make two changes for Sale return

Bath Rugby have made two changes to their starting line-up for the second of back-to-back Aviva Premiership fixtures against Sale Sharks this Saturday at the Rec, kick-off 15.15.

Both changes are to the forward pack as Charlie Ewels and David Denton come into the side for Bath's penultimate home match of the season. Ewels starts in the second row, where he partners Dave Attwood, and Denton is brought into the back row at blindside, where he starts alongside openside Guy Mercer and number eight Leroy Houston. After a fine scrummaging performance last time out at the AJ Bell Stadium, Nathan Catt, Rob Webber and Henry Thomas all remain in the front row.
 
Scrum-half Chris Cook and fly-half George Ford are the half-back pairing, whilst Ollie Devoto and Jonathan Josephcontinue in the midfield. Matt Banahan and Semesa Rokoduguni are on the wings, and Rhys Priestland starts at fullbackfor the second time this season.
