Bath Rugby team for Round 22

Bath Rugby have made just one change to their starting XV to take on Harlequins at the Stoop tomorrow in Round 22 of the Aviva Premiership, kick-off 15.15.

Eusebio Guinazu replaces the injured Rob Webber in the number two jersey for the winner-takes-all game, with Tom Dunn coming onto the bench for Ross Batty.

The international trio of Guinazu, Paul James and David Wilson are selected in the front row, with Stuart Hooper and Dave Attwood completing the tight five. CarlĀ Fearns, Guy Mercer and Leroy Houston form a dynamic back row.

George Ford links up with Micky Young in the half-backs once more, as Ollie Devoto and Jonathan Joseph continue their midfield partnership. Matt Banahan and Anthony Watson provide pace and power out wide, with Nick Abendanon named at fullback.
