A late decision will be made on Eric Miller who suffered a slight neck strain during the Edinburgh game. Should he fail to shake off the knock, Ciaran Potts will take his place on the bench. Guy Easterby partners David Holwell at half-back, while there are recalls for Ben Gissing, Ricky Nebbett and Shane Jennings in the pack.
Des Dillon will make his fourth start of the season at number eight in place of last weekend's man of the match Victor Costello who is rested.
