Stone and Emanuel return from Wales duties to bolster U17 side

Pathway | 15th August 2022

Steffan Emanuel and Kodie Stone return to the Cardiff under-17 line-up for Monday’s clash with Scarlets at the Arms Park (KO 7.00pm).

The backline duo return to the fold after linking up with the Wales under-18 squad in recent weeks, with Chadd Mutyambizi’s side targeting a third consecutive victory following wins over Bath and Ospreys in recent weeks.

Another who has been on national duty in recent weeks, Jaden Wilkins, misses out through injury as the Blue and Blacks make a total of five changes to the starting line-up that claimed a comprehensive win over Ospreys last week.

Inside centre Emanuel comes into the midfield to partner Tom Bowen, who impressed against Ospreys, while Kodie Stone and Ben Roberts return to the back three, with Dylan Scott retaining his place on the wing.

Owain Paskell - who made impact from the bench last Wednesday - is also brought into the backline to partner Tom Hughes at half back.

The only change in the pack sees Luke Caple replacing Ollie Rose in the second row, with the back row and front row remaining unchanged.

Entrance for the clash is priced at £3 for adults, but is also included with 22/23 Season Memberships - which are available now!.
