RUGBY: Four Bath changes for Sharks clash
12:14pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in Sport
BATH have made four changes for tomorrow night's Aviva Premiership match at Sale Sharks (8pm).
All the changes from the LV= Cup semi final defeat to Harlequins on March 9 come in the pack.
Test props Paul James and David Wilson return to the front row following the RBS 6 Nations Championship, where they are joined by another international, hooker Rob Webber, who comes back into the starting line-up after injury.
Club captain Stuart Hooper also returns to the starting line-up, with Dominic Day moving to the bench.
Hooper partners Dave Attwood, who this week extended his contract with the club, in the second row, while Francois Louw and Carl Fearns continue on the flanks, with Ben Skirving at number eight.
Irish international Peter Stringer, whose loan deal with Bath will now run until the end of the season, and Tom Heathcote in the half-back berths, with the rest of the backline unchanged.
Kyle Eastmond and Matt Banahan link up in the centres, with Tom Biggs and Horacio Agulla on the wings and Nick Abendanon at full-back.
Bath are offering a two wickets for £40 offer for the home Premiership clash with London Welsh - their penultimate home game - on Saturday, March 30 (2.15pm).
This offer is restricted to bronze and blue areas of the Rec only. Group and family tickets can be booked online, however the offer of two tickets for £40 is not and can be booked over the phone on 0844 448 1865 or in person at the Ticket Office on Pulteney Bridge.
