Debut starts for new signings

18 September 2015

Two of Bath Rugby’s new signings will make their debut starts for the Club tomorrow when they face Exeter Chiefs in the West Country Challenge Cup at Sandy Park, kick-off 15.00.

England 7s star Jeff Williams lines-up on the left wing for the first time, with Rory Jennings and Max Clark continuing their midfield partnership. Darren Atkins continues on the opposite wing to Williams, with Luke Arscott remaining at fullback.

Scrum-half Jonathan Evans, who came on as a replacement against Gloucester last weekend, makes his first start alongside Adam Hastings at fly-half.

An unchanged pack sees Beno Obano and Kane Palma-Newport scrum down in the front row either side of Tom Dunn at hooker, with captain Charlie Ewels partnering Tom Ellis in the second row. Academy trio Sydney Blackmore, Max Northcote-Green and Zach Mercer form the back row.
