Northampton Saints will be without George North for their Aviva Premiership clash against Bath on Friday night at the Recreation Ground.
North limped off during the Saints' 18-10 win over Harlequins last week and is not fit for selection for Friday's game. Also missing for Northampton are Alex Corbisiero, Dylan Hartley, Lee Dickson and Christian Day but Ken Pisi starts on the wing.
For Bath, Matt Garvey misses out through injury and they are still without Springbok Francois Louw. Carl Fearns comes into the side at blindside with Guy Mercer and Leroy Houston completing the back-row. Kyle Eastmond misses out for Bath so Ollie Devoto starts at inside centre with Paul James, Rob Webber and David Wilson making up their front-row.
