Bath v Glasgow Warriors
Heineken Cup, Recreation Ground, Saturday December 10, KO 14.15PM
Bath coach Mike Foley has opted to rest Danny Grewcock and David Barnes with his side facing back-to-back matches on consecutive weekends against the Scottish outfit.
Matt Stevens comes into the front row with lock Peter Short restored to the line-up.
Joe Maddock and Alex Crockett, who were not registered for the competition due to early season injuries, make way for Salesi Finau and Tom Cheeseman
Tongan international Finau plays his first game since the 39-12 home win over Bourgoin in October.
Glasgow Warriors have made two changes for their visit to the Recreation Ground, recalling Scotland internationals Dan Parks and Andy Henderson to the side.
Henderson's selection at inside centre is partially due to the absence of Scott Barrow, who now faces a six-week spell on the sidelines for a hernia operation.
The Warriors have unsurprisingly stuck with the same forward pack that destroyed Scottish rivals Edinburgh Gunners on Sunday.
Hugh Campbell's men chalked up an impressive 46-6 victory over a Gunners side who could have moved top of the Celtic League.
