Bath Rugby name team to face Sale Sharks

Anthony Watson returns to the Bath Rugby starting line-up to face Sale Sharks tomorrow evening at the AJ Bell Stadium, kick-off 19:45.

Watson starts at full-back and is joined in the back three by Ruaridh McConnochie and Joe Cokanasiga. Jamie Roberts lines up alongside Jonathan Joseph in the midfield, with Kahn Fotuali’i and Freddie Burns continuing in an unchanged half-back partnership.

Beno Obano and Max Lahiff line up either side of Tom Dunn in the front row, whilst Charlie Ewels captains the side from the second row. Dave Attwood joins Ewels in the lock pairing, with Tom Ellis, Sam Underhill and Zach Mercer completing the pack to face eighth placed Sale.

Semesa Rokoduguni also completes his return to action, as Bath’s top try scorer is named among the replacements.
