Rhys Priestland will make his 50th appearance for Bath Rugby against Worcester Warriors in the Aviva Premiership tomorrow evening at Sixways, kick-off 19:45.

The Welsh international starts at fly-half alongside Chris Cook, who returns to the starting line-up in the number nine jersey. Ben Tapuai returns to take his place at inside centre alongside Jonathan Joseph in the midfield, as Aled Brew, Jack Wilson and Anthony Watson continue in the back three positions for the trip.

Beno Obano, Tom Dunn and Henry Thomas, who were all part of Eddie Jones’s England training camp earlier this week, start in the front row. James Phillips and Elliott Stooke form the second-row combination, with Matt Garvey captaining the team at blindside flanker. Paul Grant and Zach Mercer complete an unchanged back row.
