Bath Rugby ring the changes for Glasgow Warriors

Bath Rugby have made eight changes to the starting line-up that faced Montpellier last weekend as they prepare to take on Glasgow Warriors in the final pool stage of the Heineken CupĀ at the Recreation Ground on Saturday, kick-off 1.30pm.

Jack Cuthbert comes in at fullback, and Matt Carraro returns to the wing, with Tom Biggs lining up on the opposite side. Olly Barkley and Matt Banahan combine in the centres once again.

Stephen Donald and Chris Cook form a new half-back partnership, starting a game together for the first time.

Pieter Dixon comes back into the starting line-up, scrumming down with Charlie Beech and David Wilson either side of him. Dave Attwood and Ryan Caldwell continue in the engine room, with Andy Beattie, Guy Mercer and Ben Skirving forming a new backrow.

There is also a welcome return to the match-day squad for Lee Mears, who is named on the bench.
