Bath are boosted by the return of centre Ben Williams for Saturday's Aviva Premiership clash against second-place Leicester at The Recreation Ground.
Coach Gary Gold welcomes the return of Williams who will start at outside centre to partner Kyle Eastmond in the midfield.
Williams' inclusion sees Semesa Rokoduguni shift to the right wing while Horacio Agulla starts on the opposite side against his former team.
Michael Claassens and Stephen Donald are reunited at half-back for what will be their final appearance at The Rec with the southern hemisphere pairing both moving on at the end of the season.
Bath's front line changes see hooker Rob Webber, lock Dominic Day and flanker Guy Mercer all return to the starting line-up as the hosts chase a third successive Premiership victory.
Leicester welcome the return of international trio Tom Youngs, Geoff Parling and Tom Croft who all missed last weekend's victory against London Wasps.
Croft returns to the starting XV in the flanks while Parling resumes in the second row behind Youngs who slots back in at hooker.
Thomas Waldrom will start in the number eight jersey while Steve Mafi switches to the second row after returning from injury against Wasps last time out.
Coach Richard Cockerill's final change sees him opt for Matt Smith on the wing while Geordan Murphy and Dan Bowden start on the bench.
Three more points will earn a fifth successive home semi-final for the Tigers who have secured a place in the top-four for a ninth consecutive season.
Bath, who have won their last four encounters at The Rec, come up against the most formidable travelling side in the league with Leicester securing 32 points on the road this campaign.

What they said...
Leicester Director of Rugby Richard Cockerill
"We had a good win last week but the job is not done yet. We need the points to secure a home game in the semi-finals, and Bath are also chasing the wins they need to book a place in Europe next season so it will be a big occasion."
