Hosts Bath are well in the mix for the Premiership play-offs

Bath v Worcester live stream: How to watch the Premiership match online from anywhere

Bath are well in the mix for the play-off spots, sitting in fifth in the Gallagher Premiership after winning four out of five games since the restart of the league. They host struggling Worcester at The Rec after toppling Harlequins 41-27 at The Stoop on Saturday.

Meanwhile Worcester went down 36-13 to Bristol last Friday night.

Josh McNally captains Bath after 11 personnel changes. Will Chudley and Josh Matavesi are the starting half-backs, hooker Ross Batty returns to the matchday squad for the first time since 18 January (he’s on the bench here) and Juan Schoeman, Kieren Verden and Orlando Bailey could make their debuts too.

Worcester make a whopping 14 swaps of their own. Samoa wing Ed Fidow gets a first start since January, while lock Andrew Kitchener is unavailable after being sent off against Bristol. Exciting young centre Ollie Lawrence is the only player to keep his place after the Bristol loss, while club captain Ted Hill is amongst the replacements.

It was excruciatingly close las time these two met – a 22-21 Bath win in February – as Worcester came roaring in at the death, but a Chris Pennell penalty drifted painfully past the posts.

Bath Rugby: Tom de Glanville; Semesa Rokoduguni, Max Clark, Cameron Redpath, Gabriel Hamer-Webb; Josh Matavesi, Will Chudley; Lewis Boyce, Jack Walker, Christian Judge, Josh McNally (Captain), Elliott Stooke, Tom Ellis, Miles Reid, Zach Mercer.

Replacements: Ross Batty, Juan Schoeman, Kieran Verden, Mike Williams, Sam Underhill, Max Green, Orlando Bailey, Jonathan Joseph.

Worcester Warriors: Chris Pennell, Nick David, Ollie Lawrence, Will Butler (Captain), Ed Fidow; Billy Searle, Jono Kitto; Callum Black, Beck Cutting, Richard Palframan, Justin Clegg, James Scott, Matt Cox, Sam Lewis, Tom Dodd.

Replacements: Isaac Miller, Kai Owen, Joe Morris, Ted Hill, Matti Williams, Gareth Simpson, Scott van Breda, Alex Hearle.
