In the backs, Jonny Phillips continues at full back, with Dylan Moss, who starts for the first time since his return from injury and Mike Powell make up the back three.

The back row sees Owain Lloyd replace Adam O’Driscoll, Dafi Davies continues at number eight while Zac O’Driscoll captains the side from open side flanker.

On the bench, Rhodri Apsee returns to join hooker Dewi Lake and prop Neil Elworthy as the front row replacements. Ashton Evans and Matthew John again provide second row and back row cover, while Chris Williams, Jacob Lloyd and Aaron Grabham join them as cover for the backs.
