Exeter Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter has made six changes to his side for tomorrow's Heineken Cup clash against the Scarlets (1.35pm).

In the backs, internationals Gonzalo Camacho and Sireli Naqelevuki come in for youngster Jack Nowell and Phil Dollman, who hobbled off towards the end of last weekend's win against Wasps.

There are four changes in the pack, including a start for former Scarlets lock Damian Welch. He replaces James Hanks while Simon Alcott comes in for Chris Whitehead, Hoani Tui takes over from Carl Rimmer and Tom Johnson is back on the flank in place of Dean Mumm.

Hanks and Whitehead miss out entirely, with Rimmer and Mumm joined on the bench by hooker Neil Clark and former Ireland international Ian Whitten.

Exeter Chiefs: Arscott; Camacho, Naqelevuki, Shoemark, Jess; Steenson, Thomas; Sturgess, Alcott, Tui, Hayes, Welch, Johnson, Scaysbrook, Baxter. Reps: Clark, Moon, Rimmer, Muldowney, Mumm, Barrett, Mieres, Whitten
