Can't make the trip to Sale this evening?

13 April 2012

Can't make the trip to Edgeley Park this evening to watch Bath Rugby's Aviva Premiership clash with Sale Sharks? Then why not join us at the Bath Rugby Clubhouse at the Rec?

The game is being shown live on Sky Sports, and we'll be showing it on the big screens. The doors to the Clubhouse will open at 7pm, with the game kicking-off at 7.45pm. Bars will be open throughout.

Tom Heathcote comes into the starting line-up to renew his halfback partnership with Michael Claassens and Stuart Hooper starts in the engine room alongside Dave Attwood.

Elsewhere in the pack, Nathan Catt and David Wilson scrum down either side of Ross Batty, who is handed the starting number 2 shirt, whilst Ben Skirving, Carl Fearns and Simon Taylor continue in the back row.

Olly Barkley is named at inside centre, alongside Matt Banahan, who shifts to outside centre from the wing. Matt Carraro moves outside to the wing, with Tom Biggs on the opposite side. Nick Abendanon completes the starting line-up at fullback.
