Bath Rugby will kick off their campaign for 7s silverware against London Welsh on Friday night in the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s Series Finals at the Recreation Ground.
Josh Ovens, Ben Mosses and Tom Chapman come into the squad, which once again features first team regulars Tom Biggs, Matt Banahan and Guy Mercer, and rising stars Tom Heathcote, Olly Woodburn and Chris Cook. Promising Bath Academy members JJ Kilmartin, Ollie Devoto and Will Skuse complete the squad.
Bath will line up against London Welsh and London Irish in Pool B for the Finals, with Gloucester Rugby, Sale Sharks and Saracens facing off in Pool A. The winner from each pool will go through to the final to challenge for the first piece of silverware of the season.
Action kicks-off at 19.00 with Sale Sharks v Saracens getting the Finals underway, and home side Bath, who also face the Exiles in a pre-season friendly on Saturday 11th August, will run out at the Rec for the first time this season at 20.15.
