Bath Rugby head coach Steve Meehan has recalled Nick Abendanon at full-back for Saturday's home game against Leicester Tigers.

Matt Banahan moves to the centre in place of the injured Matt Carraro in the other change from the team that won at Sale Sharks last weekend.

The matchday 23 features two former Tigers, with Peter Short named in the second row and scrum-half Scott Bemand among the replacements.
