Bath Rugby make three changes to the side for the visit of Harlequins

21 February 2020

Bath Rugby Director of Rugby Stuart Hooper has made three changes to the starting line-up which sees Lewis Boyce, Chris Cook and Jack Walker come into the side to face Harlequins in Round 11 of the Gallagher Premiership (kick-off 15:00). 

Lewis Boyce will face his former side for the third time this season as loosehead and replaces Beno Obano, who returned to the England camp ahead of their Guinness Six Nations match against Ireland on Sunday. 

Cook comes into the side for scrum-half Will Chudley, who featured in the Blue, Black and White’s most recent win over Worcester Warriors with a narrow 22-21 victory at Sixways.

A change at hooker sees Walker come in for Tom Dunn, who is also on England duty.  

Josh Bayliss comes onto the bench in place of Taulupe Faletau, who is away on Wales duty in the Guinness Six Nations.
