Bath Rugby change five for Wasps

Bath Rugby have made five changes to the starting line-up that secured victory at Sandy Park last weekend as they prepare to face London Wasps in the Aviva Premiership at the Recreation Ground on Saturday, kick-off 14.00.

In the front row, Nathan Catt and Juan Pablo Orlandi return either side of Ross Batty at hooker, as Dominic Day resumes his partnership with Stuart Hooper in the engine room. The hard hitting back row of Matt Garvey, Francois Louw and Leory Houston remains the same.

Tom Heathcote combines with Micky Young in the half-backs, and the midfield partnership of Kyle Eastmond and Ollie Devoto is unchanged. Nick Abendanon starts at fullback, with Anthony Watson and Horacio Agulla out wide on the wings.

Don't forget we're showing England v Ireland live after our final whistle in the Clubhouse and Swift Half so make sure you stick around to cheer on the Bath Rugby boys on international duty!
