Cardiff Blues North U18 change five for Ospreys challenge

24th January 2018

Cardiff Blues North U18 have made five changes ahead of tonight's Regional Age Grade Championship clash against Ospreys at Sardis Road (KO 7.15pm)

Lee Davies' side will look to bounce back from last week's defeat to Dragons at Ystrad Mynach, and four of the changes come in the pack.

Ieuan Pring makes a return to number eight, with Cian Lewis-Hughes switching from blindside to second row. Thomas Jones combines with Lewis-Hughes in a new look lock partnership.

Two changes are made in the front row as Aneurin James and Fraser Hughes replace Ieuan Morris and Iestyn Haskins, with Garyn Phillips kept at loosehead.

Only one change is made in the backline, with Iwan Price Thomas returning to full back. Dafydd Thomas moves to the bench, while a reshuffle along the line sees Liam Lloyd switch from 15 to the wing.

Cardiff Blues North U18: Iwan Price Thomas; George Thomas, Rhys Davies, Joe Vickers, Liam Lloyd; Cavan Slade, Josh Oakley; Garyn Phillips, Aneurin James, Fraser Hughes, Cian Lewis Hughes, Thomas John, Ioan Davies, Callun James, Ieuan Pring
