Yorkshire Carnegie Head Coach James Lowes has made two changes to his side to face Nottingham this Friday at Lady Bay.

In the backs, winger Louie Brown will make his Greene King IPA Championship debut having featured against London Irish last season in the British & Irish Cup. Brown replaces Stevie McColl who was injured against Scottish. Brown plays for Leeds Beckett University, having started at the university last year.

Born in Middlesbrough, he is from Featherstone and attended St Wilfrids Catholic College. He has previously played for the North of England after captaining Yorkshire. His performance for the North earned him a call up to the England Counties U18s squad in 2016 for the summer tour to Ireland where they played the national sides of Italy, France and Ireland.

The other change comes in the forwards with Jack Whetton starting this week instead of Dan Sanderson, who is ruled out through injury.

There is a welcome return from injury for Lee Imiolek and Mike Myerscough on the bench whilst Ross Graham comes in for Mike Mayhew, who is injured.
