Gavin Henson is part of a strong Bath United side that will bid to stop the Wanderers claiming ‘A’ League glory at Franklin’s Gardens on Monday night (7.30pm kick-off).

The Wales international is at inside centre in a Bath back line that also includes key men such as Nick Abendanon, Tom Biggs and Tom Heathcote.

The Wanderers have also dipped into their club’s first team squad, with the likes of Glenn Dickson, Ethan Waller and Mike Haywood starting.

Those three men, along with centre Tom Stephenson, were part of the Northampton squad which claimed a stunning 18-9 Heineken Cup win against Leinster on Saturday night.

And they will now bid to help their club put in another proud performance as the Wanderers aim to become ‘A’ League champions on home turf.
