Bath Rugby ring the changes for Europe

Bath Rugby have rung the changes for their Amlin Challenge Cup trip to Italy this weekend as they prepare to face Rugby Mogliano on Saturday, kick-off 14.00 (local time).

Nathan Catt and Dominic Day are the only two in the starting line-up who also started against Exeter Chiefs last weekend.

Catt is joined in the front row by Argentinian internationals Eusebio Guinazu and Juan Pablo Orlandi, whilst Day is partnered at lock by Ryan Caldwell. An all-new back row of Will Skuse, Mat Gilbert and Carl Fearns completes the pack.

Micky Young makes his return from injury to partner Tom Heathcote in the half-backs, with Olly Woodburn and Richard Lane continuing their comebacks out wide on the wings. Gavin Henson has also recovered from injury to link up with Kyle Eastmond in the centres. Nick Abendanon captains the side from fullback.
