Five changes for Bath Rugby for trip to Sandy Park

Bath Rugby have made five changes to the starting line-up that will travel to Sandy Park on Sunday to take on Exeter Chiefs in Round 14 of the Aviva Premiership, kick-off 13.00.

Stuart Hooper returns to captain the side from the second row, as Ross Batty, Henry Thomas, Adam Hastings and Kyle Eastmond also feature.

Batty and Thomas make up two-thirds of the front row, joining Max Lahiff who retains the loosehead shirt. Hooper is partnered by Dominic Day in the engine room, whilst Leroy Houston, Francois Louw and Amanaki Mafi form a powerful back row combination.

Hastings combines with scrum-half Chris Cook to control proceedings from the half-backs, and Eastmond slots in beside Matt Banahan in the midfield. The back three remains unchanged – Semesa Rokoduguni and Horacio Agulla providing the threat out wide, and Tom Homer from fullback.
