BATH have made six changes to the starting line-up that beat Calvisano in the Amlin Challenge Cup last weekend as they prepare to host Saracens in the Aviva Premiership tomorrow (1.15pm).

Nick Abendanon returns at full-back, and Horacio Agulla and Tom Biggs start on the wings. Kyle Eastmond continues at outside centre with Ben Williams inside him.

Stephen Donald and Michael Claassens continue their half-back partnership.

Paul James and Lee Mears both come back into the front row, packing down alongside David Wilson.

Captain Stuart Hooper also returns to the starting line-up, partnering Dominic Day in the second row. Simon Taylor shifts to number eight, with Francois Louw coming in on the blindside and Guy Mercer taking the openside.
