Tom Ellis starts at blindside flanker, with Josh Bayliss and James Phillips at openside flanker and number eight respectively.

Freddie Burns, who is the leading scorer in the competition’s history with 215 points, starts at fly-half, with Chris Cook completing the half-back partnership. Will Hurrell returns at outside centre, with James Wilson completing the midfield partnership against last year’s finalists.

Cooper Vuna and Matt Banahan line-up on the wings, with Tom Homer completing the backline.

Jack Walker could make his first team comeback after being named among the replacements, whilst Victor Delmas is in line for his Bath Rugby debut, after arriving at the Club from Colomiers this week.
