Devoto at fly-half for visit to Quins

ODevoto-Bath-1003

Ollie Devoto will make his 80th Club appearance at fly-half for Bath Rugby’s Aviva Premiership match against Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop tomorrow night (kick-off 19.45).

Devoto, who has been training with England this Six Nations, will partner scrum-half Chris Cook for the first time this season.

Kyle Eastmond and Matt Banahan, who ranked second and first respectively in the most clean breaks in Round 15, are named in the midfield. Last weekend’s joint-top attacker in the Aviva Premiership, Semesa Rokoduguni – who beat seven defenders – is named on the right wing, with Horacio Agulla at eleven and Tom Homer at fullback.

Max Lahiff, Rob Webber and Henry Thomas continue in the front row after last weekend’s successful outing at the Rec, as does the second row combination of Charlie Ewels and Dominic Day. The only change to the back row sees Amanaki Mafi return to play at number eight, with captain Francois Louw at openside and Matt Garvey at number six.
