England internationals Ted Hill and Sam Underhill are joined in the back row by Scotland man Josh Bayliss. 

Alongside Redpath in the backline, captain Ben Spencer is at scrum-half with Orlando Bailey at fly-half, and Ollie Lawrence lines up in the 13 jersey. Ruaridh McConnochie, Joe Cokanasiga and Matt Gallagher make up the back three.
