Ben Evans back in starting line-up

12th November 2004

Ben Evans returns to thestarting line-up for the first time in two months when the Blues play Glasgow Rugby at the Arms Park tomorrow.

The international prop was sidelined after picking up a hand injury when taking the field late in the game as a replacement against the Ospreys on 18 September. After recovering from that he has had two short spells, also as a replacement, in the last fortnight.

Also returning to the fold is scrum-half Ryan Powell who has been out of the game with a shoulder injury since last May. He tested his fitness playing for Llanharan in the Premier Division last week.

There are no other changes in the Blues 22-man squad from last week.

Team: Craig Morgan; Dean Dewdney, Shaun James, Lee Thomas, Fereti Tuilagi; Nick Macleod, Richard Smith; John Yapp, Rhys Thomas, Ben Evans, Craig Quinnell (capt), Robert Sidoli, Nathan Budgett, Kort Schubert, Robin Sowden-Taylor

Replacements: Andrew Lewis, Martin Jones, Gareth Williams, Deiniol Jones, Nathan Thomas, Ryan Powell, Matthew Nuthall
