Both Bath and Leicester won their two Challenge Cup fixtures over the last fortnight to reach the semi-finals, with this next Premiership encounter a possible benchmark for the final. Bath drew the longest straw to beat Zebre and London Irish whilst Leicester overcame tougher challenges in Connacht and Newcastle Falcons and their impressive exploits in Europe might have an impact on how they play away here.
The Tigers had been going strong in the Premiership before the break to sit in mid-table before this weekend’s fixture, just one point above their hosts here. Bath have been a difficult side to pin down form-wise, intermittent at best with two wins and two defeats in March, but their home form has been questionable at times this season. They will be favourite to win this match but it could be worth opting for the away side to continue their strong performances and just edge this match like they did in the reverse fixture to beat Bath 36-31 at home.
Bath host Leicester Tigers at the Recreation Ground in the Gallagher Premiership on Sunday.
Stuart Hooper’s Bath are 8th in the table on 36 points. In their previous league encounter, they lost 33-36 away against London Irish.
Josh Matavesi, Will Muir and Sam Underhill are all included in the starting XV.
Leicester, managed by Steve Borthwick, are 7th in the league with 37 points. In their last league match, they won 26-12 at home against Newcastle Falcons.
George Ford and Ben Youngs return as the three-quarter pairing, with Dan Cole and Elis Genge also in the front row alongside Tom Youngs
The final match of round 15 in the Gallagher Premiership sees two famous clubs go head-to-head, although both Leicester and Bath have struggled to replicate former glories in more recent years.
Bath secured a narrow 13-10 win at the Rec when these two sides met in January, Tom Homer’s second try 11 minutes from time decisive, and they have won on their last two trips to Welford Road. Will they be able to make it a three wins in a row at the ground for the first-ever time?
Head coach Steve Borthwick is putting his faith in a new-look Tigers side for his first game at Welford Road. He’s made 13 changes to his starting line-up to face Bath, only Tomas Lavanini and George Worth remaining from the side that lost to Exeter in their first game back.
Scrum-half Ben White will captain the Tigers while Blake Enever, Guy Porter and Harry Potter all make their Leicester debuts.
In contrast, Bath have made only two changes to the team that secured a bonus-point victory over London Irish last weekend. Cameron Redpath will make his Bath debut at inside-centre, replacing Josh Matavesi in midfield, while Tom Ellis comes in for Zach Mercer in the back row.
Leicester: Zack Henry; Harry Potter, George Worth, Guy Porter, Harry Simmons; Johnny McPhillips, Ben White (captain); Nephi Leatigaga, Jake Kerr, Joe Heyes, Tomas Lavanini, Blake Enever, George Martin, Luke Wallace, Thom Smith.
