Louw to captain Bath Rugby against Saracens

28 November 2019

Francois Louw will captain Bath Rugby against Saracens tomorrow at the Rec in Round Five of the Gallagher Premiership.

Louw leads the team in the absence of Club Captain Charlie Ewels, with the South African continuing at number eight.

Beno Obano, Tom Dunn and Will Stuart return to the starting line-up in the front row, with Elliott Stooke partnering Josh McNally at lock.

Sam Underhill, who missed last weekend’s game at The Stoop, joins Josh Bayliss and Louw in the back row.

Will Chudley and Rhys Priestland form a new half-back pairing, with Jamie Roberts starting at inside centre against the reigning Gallagher Premiership champions.

Max Wright joins Roberts in the midfield, with Ruaridh McConnochie, Semesa Rokoduguni and Tom Homer completing the backline.
