RPriestland-Bath-0403

Bath Rugby have named their team to face London Irish in tomorrow’s Aviva Premiership encounter at the Rec (kick-off 15.15).

Max Lahiff, Rob Webber and Henry Thomas start in the front row, bolstered in the engine room by Charlie Ewels and Dominic Day. Openside Francois Louw captains the team, in a back row also featuring blindside Matt Garvey and number eight Amanaki Mafi.

Wales fly-half Rhys Priestland returns from Six Nations duty to partner scrum-half Chris Cook in the half-backs. Kyle Eastmond and Ollie Devoto form an exciting midfield partnership, whilst wings Matt Banahan and Semesa Rokoduguni are joined in the back three by fullback Tom Homer.

*Legendary West Country band The Wurzels will be playing in the Swift Half shortly after the full-time whistle. Tickets for the game are available via bathrugby.com/tickets.
