Louw to captain Bath Rugby against Wasps

LouwGeneric16

Francois Louw will don the captain’s armband in tomorrow’s Aviva Premiership clash with Wasps at the Recreation Ground, kick-off 15.15, in what will be the fourth meeting between the two sides this season.

Louw comes onto the openside flank, forming a back row combination with Leroy Houston on the blindside and Amanaki Mafi, who had an impressive debut at Sixways last weekend, at number eight.

Charlie Ewels and Dominic Day form a powerful second row partnership, with Rob Webber starting at hooker between Max Lahiff and David Wilson up front.

Chris Cook and Rhys Priestland both return to the starting line-up to pull the strings in the half-backs, and Ollie Devoto, who has been released by England, links up with Matt Banahan in the midfield. Horacio Agulla and Semesa Rokoduguni provide the threat out wide, and Tom Homer completes the line-up at fullback.
