Williams to start for Bath Rugby against Falcons

Wing Jeff Williams makes his first start for Bath Rugby in the Aviva Premiership tomorrow night, as Club captain Stuart Hooper returns to lead the team against Newcastle Falcons at the Rec (kick-off 19.45).

Williams – one of Bath's three try-scorers at the Stoop last week – is the only change in the backs, and starts on the left wing. Semesa Rokoduguni is named on the right wing, and Tom Homer at fullback. Kyle Eastmond and Matt Banahan’s midfield partnership continues, as does Chris Cook and Ollie Devoto’s in the half-backs.  

Joining Hooper in the second row is Dominic Day. Matt Garvey remains on the blindside flank, completing the back row with openside Francois Louw and number eight Leroy Houston.
In the front row, David Wilson comes in at tighthead, as Max Lahiff and Rob Webber take their places at loosehead and hooker respectively.

Tickets are still available for the game against Newcastle tomorrow night, so book yours now on 0844 448 1865 or online at bathrugby.com.
