Vailanu is due to link up with Tonga’s squad after Saturday’s match to prepare for their international against England at Twickenham next week.

Duhan Duhan van der Merwe and Rory Sutherland return to club duty after a brief stint in the Scotland training camp earlier this week.

Elsewhere, Noah Heward returns on the right wing with Wales international Scott Baldwin at hooker.

Matt Garvey will make only his second start since joining from Gloucester, he partners Graham Kitchener in the second row.

Having recovered from a neck injury, Ashley Beck could make his seasonal debut as he is named on the bench along with fly-half Billy Searle and tighthead prop Jay Tack.

Jack Owlett is missing following an injury at Northampton, he is replaced by tightead prop Jay Tyack.
