Bath Rugby announce team to face Northampton Saints

21 September 2018

Dave Attwood, Taulupe Faletau, Aled Brew and Darren Atkins come into the starting line-up for Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership clash against Northampton Saints at the Rec (kick-off 15:00).  

A reshuffle in the back line sees Jackson Willison moving to inside centre with Aled Brew partnering the Kiwi in the midfield. Max Green and Freddie Burns continue in the half-back pairing, as Bath look to build on last weekend’s bonus-point victory over Harlequins.

Fresh from scoring twice at The Stoop, Joe Cokanasiga continues on the left wing, with the talismanic Semesa Rokoduguni on the opposite flank. Darren Atkins completes the back three, with the 21-year-old coming into the side at full-back.

Nathan Catt, Tom Dunn and Henry Thomas complete an unchanged front row trio, whilst Dave Attwood returns to the side to feature alongside captain Luke Charteris in the second row.

Tom Ellis and Sam Underhill remain at blindside and openside flanker respectively, with Taulupe Faletau coming in at number eight to complete the pack.
