Devoto makes first start for Bath Rugby

Fly-half Ollie Devoto will make his first start for Bath Rugby as they kick-off their Amlin Challenge Cup campaign against Bucharest Wolves on Saturday, kick-off 15.00 (local time).

The 19 year old Academy fly-half has appeared as a replacement in the Aviva Premiership against London Wasps and Gloucester so far this season, and he is amongst six players making their first starts for Bath in European competition.

Devoto is joined in the half-backs by Mark McMillan, also one of the six, with Ben Williams, Will Skuse, Will Spencer and Anthony Perenise completing the number.

Tom Biggs and Olly Woodburn start out wide on the wings, with Williams joined in the centre by Jack Cuthbert. The versatile Sam Vesty, who started last weekend's game against Gloucester at inside centre, lines up at fullback.

Perenise packs down in the front row alongside Nathan Catt and Ross Batty, whilst Spencer joins Dave Attwood in the engine room. Skuse completes the pack at Number 8, with Guy Mercer and Ben Skirving on the flanks.
