Will Addison is named at full-back and is joined in the back three by Robert Baloucoune and Jacob Stockdale on the wings. The familiar centre pairing of Luke Marshall and Stuart McCloskey will start in midfield. John Cooney and Billy Burns retain their half-back partnership – Burns will be in direct opposition to his brother Freddie who starts for Bath.

Jack McGrath starts at loosehead, Rob Herring at hooker, Alan O’Connor will combine with Iain Henderson in the second row, Sean Reidy is retained at blindside flanker, with Jordi Murphy at openside and Marcell Coetzee at No8.


Bath boss Stuart Hooper makes eight changes to the starting side that lost 25-19 to Harlequins last week, including the return of England international Ruaridh McConnochie, who replaces Aled Brew in the starting XV.
