Three changes for Bath Rugby

Bath Rugby have made just three changes to last week's winning side as they prepare to face London Wasps in the Aviva Premiership at Adams Park on Sunday, kick-off 14.00.

David Wilson returns from international duty to take the tighthead shirt, Peter Stringer is selected at scrum-half and Semesa Rokoduguni slots back in on the wing.

Wilson joins Nathan Catt and Rob Webber in the front row, with Stuart Hooper and Dave Attwood continuing in the boiler room. Leroy Houston controls the base of the scrum at number eight, with Matt Garvey and Carl Fearns on the flanks.

Stringer renews his half-back partnership with George Ford, whilst Matt Banahan lines up on the opposite wing to Rokoduguni. Ollie Devoto and Jonathan Joseph link up in the midfield once more, as Nick Abendanon retains his place at fullback.
