Tait Returns!

Matthew Tait will play his first game of rugby for 11 months tonight as he starts at full back for the Development XV when they take on Worcester.  Andy Forsyth also returns at centre as Andy Symons switches to 12 and Javiah Pohe moves to the bench.  A very young tight five will have its hands full as monster prop Rob O'Donnell (6'6" and 20 stone) is joined by Ed Shervington, the former Ospreys hooker who clashed with Alesana Tuilagi last season, and former Plymouth Albion prop George Porter who also captains the side.  Veteran lock Craig Gilles made his Bath debut just 2 months after Tigers winger Rhys Williams was born.
