Exeter Chiefs name side to face Scarlets
Rob Baxter has made six changes plus one positional switch for tomorrow’s return match against the Scarlets in the Heineken Cup.
Having won 22-16 in South Wales last weekend, the Sandy Park head coach has rested the likes of skipper Tom Hayes and talismanic No. 8 Rich Baxter for the pool five fixture.
James Hanks, who penned a new two-year deal with the Chiefs this week, and Aly Muldowney form a new second-row pairing, with Damian Welch on the bench and Hayes rested completely.
James Scaysbrook will lead the side in Hayes’ absence, with Dean Mumm joining him in the back row as Tom Johnson switching across to fill in for Baxter at the base of the scrum.

In the backs, teenage winger Jack Nowell returns after being rested last week, with Matt Jess given the chance to put his feet up. Ian Whitten joins Sireli Naqelevuki in the midfield and Phil Dollman lines up at full-back, with Jason Shoemark and Luke Arscott making way.
Haydn Thomas has also overcome a lower back injury that forced him off after just 12 minutes of last weekend’s match to keep his place at scrum-half.
On the bench there is a return for flanker Ben White, who has not played since the end of October because of injury. It caps a good week for the Aussie as he also signed a two-year contract extension earlier this week.
Exeter Chiefs: Dollman; Camacho, Naqelevuki, Whitten, Nowell; Steenson, Thomas; Sturgess, Alcott, Tui, Muldowney, Hanks, Mumm, Scaysbrook, Johnson. Reps: Clark, Moon, Rimmer, Welch, White, Barrett, Mieres, Arscott
