BATH RUGBY WELCOME RHYS WEBB INTO STARTING LINE UP

28 February 2020

New signing Rhys Webb will make his first start for the Blue, Black and White as the biggest West Country rivalry takes centre stage at the Rec this Sunday (kick-off 15:00).

The home side are also boosted by the return of Taulupe Faletau, Will Stuart and Beno Obano from international camps ahead of the weekend's clash when Bristol Bears head to Bath.

Both sides come into the match off the back of three straight Gallagher Premiership wins, with Bath Rugby looking to overturn the result from their early season meeting.

Will Stuart returns from England duty to replace Christian Judge at tighthead while Mike Williams comes back into the starting line-up for Tom Ellis, who moves to the bench.

Faletau comes in for Zach Mercer at No.8 to make up the pack. Beno Obano is the other notable change to the bench, returning to the squad from England camp.
