Four changes have been made by Todd Blackadder to starting XV of team Bath Rugby for the trip to Northampton Saints as the team wants to make it three league wins in continuity.
Player Sam Underhill playing the first match will make his debut for the Black, Whites and Blue tomorrow evening. He will be seen playing at Franklin’s Gardens in the Aviva Premiership clash. The match will start at 7.45pm.
Kahn Fotuali’I, Charlie Ewels and Ben Tapuai in the season will make their first starts in the three other changes in the starting line-up, this helped them to top the Saracens 31-21 last time.
England international Underhill on the open side flank lines-up, creating a formidable back-row with the captain Matt Garvey and Taulupe Faletau.
The second row includes Ewels alongside Elliott Stooke in the absence of Luke Charteris, who goes through the protocols of return-to-play concussion.
No changes have been made in the front row, with Anthony Perenise bearing no ill-effects from his head clash with Charteris opposite the European champions.
