Dan Baugh returns to action for the Blues when they play Leinster Lions at Donnybrook on Friday evening.
The Canadian international plays at number 8 in a much-changed line-up in all thre rows of the scrum and throughout the back division.
Jamie Robinson has a minor knee injury and is named among the replacements as Matt Allen and Pieter Muller start in the centre. Craig Morgan reverts to the wing so Donavan van Vuuren returns at full back and Ryan Powell also comes in at scrum-half.
Andrew Lewis has come on as a replacement in the last four games and makes his first start since leading the side against Ulster at the end of October while Craig Quinnell packs down with Jim Brownrigg in the second row.
Team: Donavan van Vuuren; Jonny Vaughton, Matt Allen, Pieter Muller, Craig Morgan; Nick Robinson, Ryan Powell; Kenneth Fourie, Andrew Lewis (captain), Darren Crompton, Craig Quinnell, Jim Brownrigg, Matt Cockbain, Dan Baugh, Robin Sowden-Taylor
