Bath welcome back Butch James

Figure image
South African fly-half Butch James returns to the Bath Rugby line-up to face Leicester Tigers tomorrow night for the first time since dislocating a shoulder playing against Saracens in January.

Joe Maddock steps in at full-back in place of Nick Abendanon who has a groin strain, and David Flatman lines up in an all-England international front five as prop David Barnes is rested after an eye injury.
