There are just two personnel changes to the Doncaster Knights starting XV that faced Ealing Trailfinders last weekend for tomorrow’s county clash with Yorkshire Carnegie.
The clash pits second versus fourth in the Greene King IPA Championship with the Knights looking to avenged last October’s defeat at Headingley.
In the backs Dec Cusack is the sole change from last weekend, the Irishman has successfully completed the head injury return to play protocol and replaces Simon Humberstone at fly-half who is named on the bench.
Upfront the tight five remains unchanged once again but there are a couple of changes in the backrow. Captain Michael Hills is fit to play having missed out last weekend and resumes his usual role in the number seven jersey. Latu Makaafi continues on the blindside flank as Alex Shaw switches to number eight in place of Ollie Stedman who pulled up with a hamstring strain in yesterday’s team run.
On the bench Tiziano Pasquali returns from Welford Road to provide front row fire power alongside Ted Stagg and WillGriff John. Tyler Hotson and Falcons second row Glen Young are also named amongst the replacements with Simon Humberstone and Brad Field covering the back line.
