Bath Rugby 63 v 0 Mogliano

14 December 2013, KO 15:00

Recreation Ground
Amlin Cup


13 December 2013, 11:59am

150 up for Banahan

Matt Banahan will make his 150th appearance tomorrow for Bath Rugby when he runs out in the Blue, Black and White against Rugby Mogliano in the Amlin Challenge Cup at the Recreation Ground, kick-off 15.00.

The 26 year old Jersey back, who joined Bath in 2006, will line up in the number 11 shirt.

Another potential milestone in the Bath squad is for Peter Stringer who, should he come off the bench, will make his 100th appearance in European competition.

Hat-trick hero from last weekend Richard Lane will start on the opposite wing to Banahan, with Anthony Watson at fullback and Kyle Eastmond and Ollie Devoto linking up in the centres.

George Ford returns to the number 10 shirt and partners Martin Roberts in the half-backs.

Eusebio Guinazu and Juan Pablo Orlandi retain their places and are joined by Paul James in the front row, with captain Stuart Hooper combining with Dominic Day in the boiler room. Matt Garvey and Carl Fearns are selected on the flanks, as Leroy Houston completes the pack at number eight.

There are still tickets available for tomorrow's clash with Rugby Mogliano, and to put a little festive fun into the day we've even arranged for a special guest appearance from Father Christmas himself! Tickets can be booked on 0844 448 1865, or in person at the Ticket Office on Pulteney Bridge, and families can save up to 30% on a ticket for two adults and two children.
