Bowden to debut against Saracens

28 January 2016

Dan Bowden will make his debut for Bath Rugby this Saturday in the Aviva Premiership match against Saracens at Allianz Park (kick-off 15.15).

Bowden makes his Bath bow at inside centre for the meeting with the reigning English champions, as Matt Banahan moves from wing to thirteen.

Rhys Priestland and Chris Cook make their third outing together in the half-backs, following successful forays in the wins against Worcester Warriors and London Irish earlier in the season.  

The back three sees the return of Tom Homer at fullback, whilst Horacio Agulla is named on the left wing alongside recent England call-up Semesa Rokoduguni at fourteen.

Rob Webber makes his 70th career appearance for the Club, as Nick Auterac and Henry Thomas pack down either side of the hooker. Charlie Ewels and Dominic Day are back in the second row after a strong showing against Toulon last weekend.

Francois Louw captains the side at openside flanker, joined in the back row by Matt Garvey and Leroy Houston.
