The other changes from last weekend's game against Perpignan come at half back where fit again Jason Tovey comes in for Matthew Jones and Joe Bedford replaces the rested Wayne Evans.
Full Back Jamie Smith is named on the bench having come through a couple of outings in the Principality Premiership after the hamstring and back injuries which have kept him out since the RaboDirect PRO12 match at Leinster in September.
