Ollie Fox will make just his second Gallagher Premiership start when Bath Rugby host Newcastle Falcons at the Rec on Saturday.
The scrum-half, who has four league caps to his name thus far, featured for an hour in Round 1 and partners Orlando Bailey at half-back, another player promoted from the bench.
The duo are two of three changes from the narrow loss to Sale Sharks with Juan Schoeman coming in at loosehead prop after scoring his first try in Blue, Black and White at the AJ Bell Stadium.
He is joined in the front row by homegrown hooker Tom Dunn and tighthead prop Johannes Jonker who will make his home debut.
Fan favourite Semesa Rokoduguni will earn his 175th outing in a Bath jersey, nine years following his maiden appearance in the LV= Cup.
