Rokoduguni makes 150th appearance for Bath Rugby in Tigers clash

24 January 2020

Electric winger Semesa Rokoduguni will turn out in the Blue, Black and White for his 150th appearance against Leicester Tigers this Saturday (kick-off 15:00). 

Rhys Priestland will lead out Bath Rugby at The Rec as the side return to Gallagher Premiership action.

Director of Rugby Stuart Hooper has made 11 changes to the side that faced Ulster in Belfast last week, with Tom Homer, Beno Obano and Jack Walker the only three starting in consecutive matches. 

Jackson Willison moves to inside centre lining up alongside Max Wright, while Chris Cook returns to scrum half for Ollie Fox.

Taulupe Faletau returns at No. 8 and is looking to build on his stunning return to fitness before he heads into the Wales camp.

With six players also away on England duty, Mike Williams and Josh Bayliss start at flanker while Elliott Stooke, Josh McNally and Christian Judge make up the rest of the pack alongside Obano and Walker.
