Attwood captains Bath Rugby for Quarter-Final

Dave Attwood will captain Bath Rugby this Sunday as they face Brive in the Amlin Challenge Cup Quarter-Final at the Recreation Ground, kick-off 14.00.

Attwood is partnered in the second row by Dominic Day, as Carl Fearns starts at number eight alongside Matt Garvey and Guy Mercer in the back row. Nathan Catt, last week's centurion, and Anthony Perenise are named on either side of Ross Batty at hooker.

Micky Young resumes his half-back partnership with George Ford, whilst there's a new midfield partnership of Gavin Henson and Matt Banahan. Semesa Rokoduguni and Horacio Agulla provide the pace and power out wide on the wings, with Nick Abendanon continuing at fullback.
