Donald dons captain's armband for Calvisano Challenge

Stephen Donald will captain Bath Rugby tomorrow as they take on Calvisano in Round 4 of the Amlin Challenge Cup in Italy, kick-off 14.30 local time.

It will be the first time captaining the side for the fly-half as he re-establishes his half-back partnership with Michael Claassens.

There are no changes to the front row that started the 67-11 victory at the Recreation Ground last weekend, as Charlie Beech and David Wilson scrum-down either side of Brett Sharman at hooker. Dave Attwood partners Dominic Day in the second row, whilst Simon Taylor comes onto the blindside flank and Josh Ovens shifts to the openside. Nick Koster, who scored a try on his debut last Saturday, remains at number 8.

There's an all new centre partnership in the line-up as Ben Williams is named at inside centre and Kyle Eastmond makes his first start at outside centre. Jack Cuthbert remains at fullback, with Tom Biggs returning to the left wing and Horacio Agulla starting on the right.
