Harry Beddall returns to captain Cardiff under-18 as they host Scarlets in the Regional Age Grade Championship at the Arms Park on Monday (KO 7.15pm).
The Blue and Blacks have made 10 changes as they prepare for their first home match of the campaign, having claimed victory on the road against RGC on the opening weekend of action.
Hartpury College student Beddall will wear the number seven jersey and is the only change made in the back row as Owen Conquer and Evan Rees retain their starting spots.
Joe Tucker comes into the second row to partner Dylan McDonald, and there are two new faces up front with hooker Evan Wood and prop Kamren Harris introduced.
Glantaf duo Sion Davies and Harri Wilde are reunited to form the half back partnership, while Kyan Lewis replaces Gethin O’Callaghan to partner Ben Spittle in midfield.
Tom Bowen, Harrison Nixon and Jack Kathrens are named in a new-look and exciting back three combination.
A number of players who featured in the victory over RGC are retained on the bench, including Lloyd Lucas, James Steele and Tom Calcaterra.
Entry for age grade fixtures at Cardiff Arms Park is included in Cardiff Rugby’s 22/23 Season Memberships.
