Batty and Rokoduguni in line to reach Bath Rugby milestones

RokoBath15

Ross Batty and Semesa Rokoduguni are in line to reach milestones for Bath Rugby this Saturday when they take on Northampton Saints at the Rec in the Aviva Premiership, kick-off 15.15.

Rokoduguni lines up on the wing for his 50th appearance, whilst if hooker Batty is called on from the bench he will make his 100th appearance in the Blue, Black and White.

Olly Woodburn starts on the opposite wing with Tom Homer, fresh from his debut last weekend, named at fullback. Kyle Eastmond and Sam Burgess link-up in the midfield once more, as Ollie Devoto partners Micky Young in the half-backs.

Paul James returns from international duty to join Rob Webber and Henry Thomas up front, and Stuart Hooper and Dominic Day combine in the second row. Carl Fearns starts at number 8, with Matt Garvey and Francois Louw on either flank.

Bath Rugby will be holding a minute's silence ahead of the game in memory of those who tragically lost their lives and were affected by the accident in the city a couple of weeks ago.
