Yorkshire Carnegie Head Coach James Lowes has made three changes to his side for this Saturday’s trip to Hartpury.

Captain Richard Mayhew has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a foot injury suffered in last week’s win over Doncaster so his place in the back row goes to Mike Myerscough. Alex Davies, who was forced out of last week’s game in the warm up with a hamstring strain, returns to the side and will captain Yorkshire Carnegie this weekend.

Richard Beck joins the injured list after suffering a cut to his hand and will be sidelined for a fortnight.

Will Homer, who is dual registration from Bath Rugby, will start his first game after three appearances as a replacement, with scrum half Max Green starting his three game suspension.
