Anthony Watson to make 100th appearance for Bath Rugby against Leicester Tigers

Anthony Watson is set to mark his 100th appearance for Bath Rugby against Leicester Tigers at Welford Road on Saturday, kick-off 16:00.

Watson starts his position at full-back, with Joe Cokanasiga and Ruaridh McConnochie completing the back three for the final game of the regular Gallagher Premiership season. Max Wright comes in at inside centre and forms a midfield pairing with Jonathan Joseph. Will Chudley and Freddie Burns continue in the half-back pairing.

Beno Obano and Max Lahiff line-up either side of Tom Dunn in the front row, with Charlie Ewels leading the side from the second row. After a physical display as a replacement in the victory against Wasps in the last round, Levi Douglas starts alongside Ewels. Tom Ellis and Sam Underhill take their positions at blindside and openside flanker respectively and Zach Mercer completes the pack at number eight.

Francois Louw makes his return to action, with the South African international named among the replacements for the final round of the Gallagher Premiership season.
