Rugby round-up: Gavin Henson steps into new Bath partnership
Sunday 06 April 2014
Bath are favourites to brush aside Brive at the Recreation Ground in the quarter-final of the Amlin Challenge Cup today when they will have Gavin Henson in midfield.
The Welshman, right, will form a new midfield partnership with Matt Banahan for Bath's first match against the French Top 14 side since the Heineken Cup final in 1998
Dave Attwood, the England lock, will captain a team in which he will be partnered in the back row by Dominic Day and the starting half-backs will be George Ford and Micky Young.
Gloucester show three changes for their quarter-final trip to Wasps, with hooker Dan George and lock James Hudson both featuring, and Billy Twelvetrees moving from centre to fly-half to replace the injured Ryan Mills.
Wasps welcome back the England forwards Matt Mullan and Joe Launchbury, who were both rested for last week's home defeat by Saracena in the Aviva Premiership, and Will Helu takes over on the wing from Jonah Holmes.
