A bit of a left-field selection that I don't think anyone would have predicted. Still, a young and dynamic backline, a hefty pack with a few youngsters eager to make their mark and nothing to lose. Should make an interesting game! Fast paced anyhow!

Excited by this selection - with the regulations it had to come Saturday or Wednesday anyway. With Bath being v close to full strength, this will be a real test

Bring it on

Inevitable so only a choice which day! Looking at the Bath side I guess a 20+ loss is on the cards, just hope there aren't injuries.

Wow a very changed side

We will do well to get any points and prevent a cricket score

I guess we are going to see teams go for us as an winnable game and put out best teams

Was it against Cardiff away earlier this season when some of us said something similar? I was surprised then.

Brave sélection after having seen the Bath team. Nothing to lose, however, and opportunities for the new players to see how they shape up. I might’ve been tempted to select a strong side and go for a much-needed win, but having said that, squad rotation is important. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing Henry at fullback as I firmly believe him to one of the most promising signings.

This is great to see. We know Murphy has greatly increased the focus on developing talent, and even if only because of the circumstances The new coaching team is picking this up.

Massive banana skin for Bath. They will have no clue how this team will play. Pressure is all on them. How embarrassed would they be to lose this one.

With not much left to play for and a hefty schedule this is the perfect selection IMO, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the relative unknowns can do. Tomas is going to feel even more like a man amongst boys than he normally does.

Whilst massive rotation hasn't gone well for us in the past I'm all for it given the current scenario, we have nothing to loose this season so we might as well blood some youngsters and see who's ready or not, that way we hopefully hit the ground running for next season

Wow. This could be a massacre.

The coaching team has obviously decided to prioritise Wednesday, and in a big way. Debuts all over the place, and untried combinations.

I would have quite liked to have had a real go at Bath, at home, but decisions had to be made, and I understand. Might as well find out what we can before the end of the season too, to have a better idea for the next.

Bath have named a really strong side though...gulp!

I don't want to be seen as defeatist, but I reckon it will be a great effort if Tigers can finish within 15 points of them.

I think this line-up can be justified, but only if Tigers put in a big performance (irrespective of result) on Wednesday.
