Bath team to face Worcester

Leroy Houston returns to the Bath Rugby starting line-up tomorrow as they take on Worcester Warriors at the Recreation Ground in the Aviva Premiership, kick-off 15:00.

Houston, who arrived back at the Club this week on a short-term contract, takes his place at number eight, with Charlie Ewels and David Sisi on the flanks either side of him. Luke Charteris and Dave Attwood continue their partnership in the engine room, whilst Henry Thomas makes his come back from injury alongside Ross Batty and Nick Auterac up front.

In the backs, Dan Bowden makes his first appearance of the season at 12, partnering Matt Banahan in the centre. Anthony Watson is named on the left wing with double try-scorer against Newcastle, Semesa Rokoduguni, on the right. Tom Homer is at fullback, with George Ford and Kahn Fotulai’i continuing their successful combination in the half-backs.

Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, said: “Leroy has been fantastic since he arrived. We’ve slotted him into a young back row to give us some experience and grunt from the base of the scrum. We’re looking forward to seeing how Dan Bowden, Anthony Watson and Henry Thomas go as they return from injury, and also how Matt Banahan goes at outside centre.

“Obviously we were really pleased with the result against Newcastle last weekend, but we’ve not got carried away this week. There is still lots for us to work on, and the squad have applied themselves really well as we’ve prepared for the visit of Worcester.”

Something for the Bath fans to smile about

England stars Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson have both agreed long-term extensions with Bath Rugby that will see the pair stay at the club until at least 2019.

Joseph and Watson joined Bath in 2013, making their debuts in the win over Newcastle Falcons in the opening game of the Aviva Premiership season, and have become mainstays in both the Bath and England backline in that time.
