Charteris to captain Bath Rugby against Harlequins

14 September 2018

Bath Rugby have made three changes to the side that took on Gloucester last weekend, with Tom Ellis, Luke Charteris and Elliott Stooke coming into the starting line-up to face Harlequins on Saturday, kick-off 15:00. 

Stooke, a try scorer in last weekend’s 31-31 draw against Gloucester is joined in the second row by Charteris, who captains the side travelling to Twickenham Stoop. In an unchanged front row, Nathan Catt is joined by Henry Thomas and Tom Dunn, who scored twice in the West Country derby. 

In the back row, Tom Ellis starts at blindside flanker having made his 50th appearance for Bath Rugby last week, with Sam Underhill at openside and Zach Mercer switching to number eight to complete the pack.

Max Green and Freddie Burns feature in an unchanged half-back pairing, with Green making his second Gallagher Premiership start for the Blue, Black and White. Joe Cokanasiga and Semesa Rokoduguni occupy the left and right wing respectively, both impressing last week against the Cherry and Whites. Jamie Roberts remains at inside centre, with Jackson Willison outside him in the number 13 shirt. Tom Homer completes the backline at full-back.
