Mass changes for the home team this evening with Kevin Proctor, Chris McQueen & Joe Greenwood omissions to an already injury ravaged club. Some good news however with Tyrone Roberts overcoming a knee injury to line-up at fullback. This forces Tyrone Roberts-Davis to the wing with Daniel Vidot dropping back to the bench where he will more than likely slot into the forwards rotation. Karl Lawton will start at nine with Ryan Simpkins reverting to the bench, whilst the new look back-row consists of Leivaha Pulu, Chris Grevsmuhl and Max King. Forwards Morgan Boyle and Paterika Vaivai also join the pine.
Just one change for the visitors with Joe Tapine starting at Lock and Sia Soliola slipping back to the bench.
