Lions No.8 Faletau switches position for Bath
Fellow Lion Anthony Watson is also switching position. He moves to the wing to accomodate Tom de Glanville, who will make his return from injury in the 15 jersey.
Max Clark comes into the centre with the rest of the backline unchanged from the Challenge Cup semi-final.
A replacement against Montpellier, Elliott Stooke partners captain Josh McNally in the boiler while the front row is unchanged.
On the bench, Tom Ellis is set for his 100th Bath Rugby appearance. Another from the pathway, the 26-year-old made his debut for the club in 2014 and has been a consistent performer in Blue, Black and White ever since.
Fly-half Rhys Priestland is also in the matchday 23. It is the first time the Welshman has featured since the middle of March.
