Bath United name team to face Exeter Braves

7 September 2018

Bath United have named their side to face Exeter Braves at Sandy Park on Sunday in the Premiership Rugby Shield, kick-off 14:30.

Josh Bayliss captains the side from openside flanker, with Miles Reid switching from number eight to blindside flanker. The experience Paul Grant completes a powerful back row for the trip to Devon.

Will Vaughan comes into the United side after appearing for the first team last week and lines up alongside Michael van Vuuren and Kieran Verden in the front row. Charlie Ewels continues his comeback in the second row, with Rhys Davies in the number four shirt.

Alex Davies and Tom de Glanville continue in the half-back pairing following last week’s defeat against Bristol Bears ‘A’. Will Butt comes into the team at outside centre, with Max Wright inside him.

Fresh from scoring in his first appearance in the Blue, Black and White, Ruaridh McConnochie takes his place on the left wing with Levi Davis lining up on the opposite flank.
