TEAM NEWS Faletau back at 8 for Bath, Jennings debut

Bath rugby crestBath Rugby welcome back Welsh international forward Taulupe Faletau at no 8 against Harlequins at the Recreation Ground today (1500ko).

Faletau made his comeback as a second half replacement for Wales during their 21-16 defeat against England last Saturday. David Denton will make his first start in the league since September.

21 year old Rory Jennings makes his Premiership debut at inside centre next to Max Clark.

After kicking the match-winning penalty in the 32-30 victory over Northampton Saints last week, fly half Rhys Priestland combines with Kahn Fotuali’i in a potent half-back pairing.

Bath centurion Semesa Rokoduguni will be keen to add to his impressive try tally after winging-in for his 48th try on his 100th appearance for the club in the win over Saints. Jack Wilson makes his second successive Premiership start on the left wing.
