Steve Borthwick will lead Bath Rugby in Saturday's Guinness Premiership match against Leicester Tigers at Welford Road after missing last weekend's home win over Northampton Saints.

With the return of England international Borthwick, former Tigers man Peter Short moves from lock to the back row, where James Scaysbrook replaces Michael Lipman on the openside. Chev Walker will start at outside centre in place of Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu, with Olly Barkley at inside centre and Chris Malone at fly-half.
