Six changes for the trip to Toulon

16 December 2022

Johann van Graan has made six changes to his Bath Rugby starting XV which will take on Toulon at Stade Mayol in the EPCR Challenge Cup.

Loosehead prop Lewis Boyce starts after making his return to action from injury last weekend, while the back row is completely fresh with Tom Ellis, Miles Reid and Richard de Carpentier introduced. 

Max Ojomoh comes in at inside centre and Will Butt is included on the wing in an otherwise unchanged backline. 


Elsewhere in the pack, Tom Dunn and D’Arcy Rae continue at hooker and tighthead respectively. Dave Attwood and Fergus Lee-Warner are once again paired in the second row.

Ben Spencer captains from scrum-half and Piers Francis is named at fly-half. Gallagher Rugby Player of the Month Ollie Lawrence retains the 13 jersey with Joe Cokanasiga and Tom de Glanville in the back three.
