Joseph returns for clash with Saints

Centre Jonathan Joseph makes his first Club appearance of the season in Bath Rugby’s Aviva Premiership match against Northampton Saints tomorrow at the Rec (k.o. 15:15).

Joseph returns from injury to partner inside centre Ollie Devoto in the midfield, with the back three comprising wings Matt Banahan and Semesa Rokoduguni, with Anthony Watson at fullback.

Chris Cook, a replacement during last weekend's match against Leicester Tigers, starts this weekend at scrum-half alongside fly-half George Ford.

Nick Auterac, Rob Webber and Henry Thomas are named in the front row, as Dave Attwood returns to the second row, where Academy lock Tom Ellis also starts.

Openside Francois Louw captains the team, with blindside Matt Garvey and number eight Leroy Houston also reprising their roles in the back row.
