New signing Ryan Hodson will make his debut for JRFC starting at
7 in Saturday's Greene King IPA Championship fixture against a
dangerous visiting Leeds team.
In the front row, Jon Brennan switches with Nick Selway in
returning to the starting line up. Meanwhile, Sean McCarthy comes
back in at loosehead in place of Sam Lockwood, who is unable to
play against his former club as per his loan agreement. The rest of
the pack remains unchanged from last week's losing bonus point
clash at Pirates.
In the half backs, Nicky Griffiths switches with Jimmy Williams
to start at 9 and is to be partnered by Aaron Penberthy, once again
given the nod to marshal an increasingly settled backline.
Tom Fidler makes his comeback to 1st team rugby on
the bench following injury layoff, the end of which was marked by a
rampant display for Jersey Athletic last week. Elsewhere, Niall
O'Connor will be conspicuous by his absence but Joel Dudley returns
to the fray as backs cover.
