Bath Rugby name side to face Newcastle Falcons

22 November 2018

Bath Rugby have named their team to face Newcastle Falcons tomorrow night at Kingston Park in the 8th Round of the Gallagher Premiership. (kick-off 19:45)

Nathan Catt and Henry Thomas line up either side of Tom Dunn in the front row. Matt Garvey leads the side out from second row, forming an experienced lock pairing with Dave Attwood.

Tom Ellis starts at blindside, the flanker scoring his first try of the season last weekend against Worcester. Josh Bayliss moves to openside flanker with Zach Mercer returning from international duty and coming in at number eight. 

Will Chudley and Freddie Burns form an unchanged half-back pairing. Jamie Roberts continues at inside centre with Jackson Willison outside him, in an exciting midfield partnership.

Semesa Rokoduguni starts once again on the right wing, with Cooper Vuna opposite him on the left. Tom Homer comes in at full-back to complete the dangerous looking back-line.
