Yorkshire Carnegie Head Coach James Lowes has a host of new faces available for this week’s British & Irish Cup clash with the Dragons Premiership Select at Huddersfield YMCA on Saturday, kick off 1.30pm.

There is one debutant in the starting line up with Leeds Beckett flyer Harry Robinson starting on the wing whilst fly half Harry Davey returns to the side having won the man of the match award in the last three games with Huddersfield RUFC whilst on dual registration. He will team up with England U18 international Oliver Fox in the half backs.

Full back Darren Atkins starts his first game after coming off the bench last week following his arrival from Bath Rugby. He is joined this week from The Rec by his Bath team mate Will Vaughan, a loose head prop, who is amongst the replacements.

Vaughan and Robinson could be two of potentially five debutants on the day. Tight head prop Xavier Valentine, flanker Trystan Lloyd and fly half Michael Waters have all been part of the in form Leeds Beckett side this season in the BUCS Super Rugby competition.  The university side have not had a game this week after a dramatic draw with the University of Bath last time out and will have the opportunity to impress in the Yorkshire Carnegie first team on Saturday. Hooker Jordan Poole could make his first appearance of the season after being named on the bench.

However, there is plenty of experience in the side as well with Chris Elder and Fred Burdon forming an exciting looking centre partnership and Dan Sanderson, Matt Smith, Ben West and Josh Bainbridge adding lots of first team experience in the pack. Bainbridge will captain the side in his 49th appearance for the club.
