Bath Rugby have today announced the 27-man squad that will take on Gloucester in the West Country Challenge Cup game at the Rec on Saturday, kick-off 17.45.
The game will be the first appearance of the season for many of the senior squad, with second row Dave Attwood set to captain the side.
Up front, he is joined by the experienced likes of Ross Batty, Leroy Houston, Max Lahiff, Guy Mercer and Henry Thomas, as well as young stars Charlie Ewels, Nick Auterac and Zach Mercer.
In the backs, the exciting talents of Kyle Eastmond and Semesa Rokoduguni are both set to appear, as are Matt Banahan, Ollie Devoto and Chris Cook. New signings Jonathan Evans and Jeff Williams will also feature as Bath kick-off their 150th anniversary season against one of their oldest rivals.
Tickets are still available for the game from the Bath Rugby Ticket Office, and we’ll be showing the Rugby World Cup game between England and Wales around the ground after our final whistle. We are also hosting the Red Bull Uni 7s tournament throughout the day, with some of the most exciting talents in university rugby on show.
