Bath Rugby make three changes as they prepare for a first semi-final since 2015 with the Blue, Black and White facing Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park on Saturday. 

Bath Rugby’s Joe Cokanasiga will make his first start for the Blue, Black and White after spending 16 months out on the side lines following a knee injury. 

Cameron Redpath moves into midfield to join Jonathan Joseph and the young England centre replaces Josh Matavesi, who is named on the bench.
