Clark, Homer and Perenise return for West Country derby

27 April 2018

Bath Rugby has made three changes to the team to face Gloucester Rugby on Saturday at Kingsholm, kick-off 15:00. 

Max Clark, Tom Homer and Anthony Perenise all return to the starting line-up, whilst Charlie Ewels continues as captain.

Perenise joins Beno Obano and Tom Dunn in the front row, with Elliott Stooke lining up against his former side alongside Ewels in the second row.

Tom Ellis, Francois Louw and Taulupe Faletau complete the pack in an unchanged back row combination. 

Kahn Fotuali’i and Rhys Priestland continue at scrum-half and fly-half respectively, with James Wilson switching from full back to inside centre to partner Clark in the midfield.

Aled Brew and Matt Banahan occupy the wing positions, with Homer completing the backline at full back.

Zach Mercer marks his return to action, with the back rower named among the replacements for the derby clash.
