Declan Kidney has confirmed the squad that will travel to the Recreation Ground to take on Bath Rugby in Round 17 of the Gallagher Premiership tomorrow (3pm kick-off).

Facundo Gigena, Agustin Creevy and Oliver Hoskins are in the front row, with Api Ratuniyarawa and Rob Simmons in the second row.

Juan Martin Gonzalez and Tom Pearson are set to wear the six and seven jerseys respectively, and Matt Rogerson captains the side from number 8.

Joe Powell and Paddy Jackson combine to form the halfback duo, and Rory Jennings links up with Benhard van Rensburg in the centres.

Ben Loader, Lucio Cinti and James Stokes complete the line-up as the back three.

“A trip to Bath Rugby is never an easy fixture, but after a bit of a break from league action for cup matches, we are looking forward to getting things going again.

“Bath Rugby have a lot of players returning from injury and were very unlucky to not get a win against Sale Sharks in their last league outing, so we know tomorrow will be a tough challenge.

“We have had a good training week and the players, squad and staff are excited for tomorrow’s match.”
