Five changes for Bath Rugby

Five changes for Bath Rugby

Bath Rugby have made five changes to their starting line-up for the trip to Sandy Park tomorrow when they take on Exeter Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership, kick-off 15.15.

The backline remains unchanged, with four personnel changes and one positional in the pack.

An all-new front-row of Nick Auterac, Ross Batty and Kane Palma-Newport – who recently made his 50th appearance for the Club – starts, with Stuart Hooper and Dominic Day behind them. Francois Louw continues on the openside flank, as Carl Fearns shifts to the blindside and Leroy Houston returns at number eight.

Micky Young partners Ollie Devoto in the half-backs, and Kyle Eastmond and Sam Burgess link up once again in the midfield. Olly Woodburn and Semesa Rokoduguni are named out wide on the wings, with Tom Homer selected at fullback.

Hooker Rob Webber could make his 50th appearance in the Blue, Black and White, should he be called on from the bench.
