Shanklin and Baugh Pass Fitness Tests

10th December 2003

Tom Shanklin and Dan Baugh have both passed fitness tests on Thursday morning and will take their places in an unchanged Blues team to face Leinster Lions at Cardiff Arms Park on Friday night.

After a final run-out at the Arms Park coach David Young said,

"This match is a big test for us. We have been improving steadily in recent weeks but we realise that performance is one thing, but a result something else altogether.

"We need a win, there's no hiding from that fact, and I am confident that the team is ready for the challenge.

"We have worked on our lineout this week and if our scrum does as well as it did against Sale Sharks then we are in with a real chance of a good result."

Blues Team: Rhys Williams, Tom Shanklin, Jamie Robinson, Matt Allen, Craig Morgan, Iestyn Harris, Ryan Powell, John Yapp, Gareth Williams, Darren Crompton, Craig Quinnell, Andy Moore, Dan Baugh, Martyn Williams (Capt), Nathan Thomas

Replacements: Ben Evans, Leyton Phillips, Heino Senekal, Jim Brownrigg, Andrew Moore, Nick Robinson, Nick Walne
