Bath Rugby team mates come head to head

14 March 2013

Bath props Davey Wilson and Paul James are set to meet head-on this Saturday as Wales take on England at the Millennium Stadium, kick-off 17.00.

Both men will start the match on their respective reserves bench, and so will likely take the field at similar times. As close as they are while on Bath duty, there will be no love lost when they lock horns this Saturday; it will be explosive indeed.

Speaking ahead of the clash, England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "We have come a long way through the QBE series and the Six Nations and we want to finish well on what will be a fantastic occasion in Cardiff. It will be a great experience for our English team. Every single player, whether they are in the 23 or not this Saturday, has contributed to getting us in this position and they should be proud of that.

"The support of the country has been great throughout the tournament and I am sure they will be right behind us come 5 o'clock."
