Bath Rugby name team to face Worcester Warriors

4 January 2019

Bath Rugby have made five changes to their side to face Worcester Warriors at Sixways Stadium on Saturday, kick-off 15:00.

Dave Attwood, Charlie Ewels, Zach Mercer, Jacques van Rooyen and Cooper Vuna all come into the starting line-up for the Gallagher Premiership clash.

South African van Rooyen starts at loosehead in an otherwise unchanged front row which includes Tom Dunn and Henry Thomas. Attwood returns to the second row alongside Ewels, as Bath look to make it three wins on the bounce.

Zach Mercer returns to the starting line-up at number eight with Francois Louw and Tom Ellis completing the pack.

Will Chudley captains the team from scrum-half, with Freddie Burns alongside him at fly-half. Jamie Roberts and Max Wright continue in the centre partnership, with Cooper Vuna coming into the fold on the left wing. Semesa Rokoduguni and James Wilson complete the back line for the trip to Sixways.
