England international Burns is at fly-half, with Bell starting at full-back against his former club. In another change to the backline, Mathew Tait lines up against his former club on the wing in place of Blaine Scully.
 
The forward pack features returns for Jamie Gibson, Michele Rizzo and Leonardo Ghiraldini.
