Bath Rugby are back at the Rec as they take on Leicester Tigers in the Premiership Rugby Cup today.

The Blue, Black and White have won one, lost one in Pool 3. A victory would see them make up ground on leaders Exeter Chiefs and give them a chance of progressing to the semi-finals.

Director of rugby Stuart Hooper has made eight changes to the starting XV from the win against Worcester Warriors.

Tigers beat Chiefs last time out and, like Bath, will also be without a number of their stars due to the Rugby World Cup.

We'll be bringing you all the build-up, match action and reaction from the Rec in our live blog below. The match kicks off at 3pm.

Given the team's I'd expected a hard fought game with Bath maybe edging the second half when they emptied their bench. Excellent result for Tigers especially playing for most of the second half down a man. That'll boost confidence.

Roughly half the starting 15 from the academy is nice as well. The Leicester identity hopefully returning. Look forward to seeing the highlights.

8 academy lads starting, 3 on the bench. If Reffell gets a chance in the real games this could be a massive break through season for him.

It very much looks like he'll be understudy to Thompson. I hope we take a bigger view than one game at a time and rotate him into the team on a regular basis so that we manage both openside workloads.

Looks like Hardwick is stepping up nicely as well. Got to be looking at him as the long term solution at 12 who can step in and play 10 as we need. Good to see Worth getting a game at centre as well, a very versatile and useful player, he could see a lot of bench time in the big games.
