Bath United semi-final at capacity!

Tonight's Bath United Aviva A league semi-final against Sale Jets has reached capacity, with the 6,000 strong crowd making it a record breaking attendance for an A league game at the Rec, kick-off 19.30.

Olly Woodburn and David Sisi make a welcome return to the field after overcoming lengthy injury lay-offs, and will be keen to prove themselves against a Sale Jets side which finished second in the Northern Conference.

Sisi plays in a back row formed of Tom Ellis, who shifts from lock to the blindside, and number eight Will Skuse, the latter of whom featured in the closing stages of yesterday's victory over London Wasps.

Will Spencer and Charlie Ewels partner once again in the second row, and they bolster a mobile front row comprising of Charlie Beech, Tom Dunn and captain Kane Palma-Newport.

Chris Cook and Tom Heathcote (another who featured briefly against Wasps) continue their half-back partnership, with Kyle Eastmond and Max Clark starting in a new midfield combination.
The reintroduction of Woodburn on the right wing complements Tom Biggs on the left, as Richard Lane moves to fullback.

As our capacity for the evening has already been reached, there will be no tickets available on the gate. There will be live coverage of the game on Bath Rugby's Twitter account @bathrugby, and live streamed through our Facebook account at
