The Yorkshire Carnegie U18s travel to Leicester Tigers U18s  this Saturday for their latest Premiership Rugby Academies League game, kick off 12 noon at Oval Park.

Yorkshire have lost their last three games, and take on a Leicester side who are one spot above them in the league table.  The young Tigers side have matched Carnegie for games won and lost but they are ahead in the table, having secured two more bonus points.

Jon Pendlebury and Ben Lazenby have made two changes to the backline with Louis Brown returning to the starting line up at full back and Sam Brooke returning at centre.

In the forwards, Ollie Rayner comes in at hooker for Will Henshall, Elliot Ward moves back to lock and Tom Williams, who was a replacement last week against Northampton starts at 8.  Adam Hopkinson, Max Hanson and Hugo Tasker all come into the starting line up.

The Northampton team includes England U16 hooker Samson Ma’asi on the bench, who is the son of former Carnegie player Vili Ma’asi. There are a couple more familiar names in the Saints side with Ollie Sleightholme, son of Jon, on the wing and fly half James Grayson, son of Paul, amongst the replacements.
