Yorkshire Carnegie Head Coach Bryan Redpath has made six changes to his side for Sunday’s top of the table clash at Bristol.

The changes are equalling split amongst the backs and forwards. Tom Casson, who joined Yorkshire this summer from Aviva Premiership side Harlequins, will make his debut at centre alongside Pete Lucock whilst David Doherty returns after recovering from a back injury to replace Christian Georgiou on  the wing.
 
In the forwards, Jack Walker is back at hooker with Phil Nilsen starting as a replacement this week, whilst captain Chris Jones reverts to the back row to allow Matt Smith and Tom Ryder to play alongside each other in the second row for the first time.
