Ted Hill and Fergus Lee-Warner will make their first Bath Rugby starts as Johann van Graan makes eight changes to the starting XV for the trip to Newcastle Falcons.
Blindside flanker Hill impressed on debut in the win over Northampton Saints before committing his long-term future to the club, while versatile forward Lee-Warner has made an impact as a replacement in his two outings to date.
After 13 caps for Bath last season, Valeriy Morozov is in at loosehead prop after committing for the remainder of the 2022/23 season and D’Arcy Rae returns at tighthead.
Max Green has recovered from his ankle issue to take his place at scrum-half, and Max Ojomoh replaces Cameron Redpath who is starting for Scotland against Fiji.
On the wings, Ruaridh McConnochie is back on the left while Gabriel Hamer-Webb is reinstated on the right as Joe Cokanasiga is on England duty.
Tom Dunn remains as captain and Quinn Roux continues in the second row, partnering Lee-Warner who is in for the suspended Dave Attwood. Miles Reid and Richard de Carpentier complete the pack.
Elsewhere in the backline, George Worboys is at fly-half with Ollie Lawrence and Matt Gallagher at outside centre and full-back respectively.
