BATH'S international contingent return to the starting line-up for tomorrow’s Aviva Premiership West Country derby clash with Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park (3.15pm).

Paul James and Dave Attwood both return to the pack, along with David Wilson, who makes his comeback from a calf injury to start on the tighthead. Ross Batty takes the hooker's shirt.

Attwood partners club captain Stuart Hooper in the second row, and the back row remains unchanged after last weekend’s win over Newcastle – Matt Garvey and Francois Louw on the flanks and Leroy Houston at number eight.

George Ford is joined by Micky Young in the half-backs, as Kyle Eastmond and Ollie Devoto continue their midfield partnership.

Matt Banahan and Horacio Agulla start out wide on the wings, with Anthony Watson selected at full-back.

For Bath fans who can’t travel to the game, the clubhouse at the Recreation Ground will be open from 3pm, broadcasting the game live.

Bath: 15. Anthony Watson, 14. Horacio Agulla, 13. Ollie Devoto, 12. Kyle Eastmond, 11. Matt Banahan, 10. George Ford, 9. Micky Young, 1. Paul James, 2. Ross Batty, 3. David Wilson, 4. Stuart Hooper (captain), 5. Dave Attwood, 6. Matt Garvey, 7. Francois Louw, 8. Leroy Houston.
