Thomas starts for Bath Rugby against Wasps

29 September 2017

Bath Rugby’s Henry Thomas will make his return from injury, for Sunday’s Aviva Premiership clash against Wasps at the Ricoh Arena, kick-off 15:00.

 Thomas will take his place in the front row alongside Jack Walker and Beno Obano, who comes in for Nick Auterac at loosehead prop.

Charlie Ewels captains the side and will revert back to the second row after wearing the number six shirt last weekend. Ewels will feature alongside Luke Charteris, whilst Zach Mercer makes his first Aviva Premiership start of the season at blindside flanker. Sam Underhill and Taulupe Faletau, who missed the game against Newcastle Falcons, both return to the back row.

Anthony Watson is the only change in the back line at fullback, with Aled Brew and Semesa Rokoduguni completing the back three. Jonathan Joseph and Max Clark will provide the midfield options, whilst Rhys Priestland and Chris Cook form the half-back pairing for the trip to Coventry.

Unavailable for selection: Dave Attwood, Matt Banahan, Ross Batty, Nathan Catt, Tom Ellis, Kahn Fotuali’i, Matt Garvey, Paul Grant, Tom Homer, Shaun Knight, Max Lahiff, Francois Louw, Kane Palma-Newport, Jeff Williams
