Gloucester Team News for West Country Sell-out

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

The Cherry and Whites welcome back Robert Todd and Rodrigo Roncero for Saturday's sell-out West Country derby against Bath at Kingsholm.

Todd returns in midfield after missing last weekend's trip to Franklin's Gardens through flu, Nigel Melville and Dean Ryan's front row options are boosted after Roncero's return from Argentina World Cup duties.

Open-side flanker Andy Hazell misses out after receiving a Club suspension following his involvement in last weekend's fracas at Franklin's Gardens.

Gloucester captain Jake Boer moves to open-side flanker and James Forrester comes in to wear the number eight shirt. Peter Buxton moves to blind-side flanker.

The Gloucester replacements bench is without Scottish international hooker who is absent with a knee injury. He is replaced by Academy product Chris Collins. Welsh U21 and sevens international James Merrimen (back-row forward) is also named as a replacement.
