Saracens and England full-back Alex Goode will start his first game of the Aviva Premiership season when Bath visit Allianz Park this Sunday.

Goode takes over from Chris Wyles, who moves to outside centre while prop Mako Vunipola and hooker Schalk Brits also start the game.

George Kruis come into the team, replacing Alastair Hargreaves who drops to the bench. Scotland captain Kelly Brown and scrum-half Neil De Kock have been named on the bench, both returning from injury.

Meanwhile, Martin Roberts and Alafoti Fa'osiliva will make their first starts for Bath on Sunday.

Roberts links up with Tom Heathcote in an all-international half-back pairing, with the fly-half also making his first appearance of the season.

In the backs, Tom Biggs comes on to the left wing with Semesa Rokoduguni continuing on the right, and Anthony Watson is named at full-back. Gavin Henson continues at inside centre, with Bath stalwart Matt Banahan, who is making his 100th Premiership appearance, shifting to partner him in the midfield.

Fa'osiliva starts on the blindside flank, with Guy Mercer and Leroy Houston on the openside and at number eight respectively. Dominic Day is chosen to partner captain Stuart Hooper in the engine room, whilst Anthony Perenise switches sides to pack down on the loosehead with Rob Webber and David Wilson completing the front-row.
