Will Boyde set for first Cardiff Blues start at Glasgow

Posted by

There are two changes to the Cardiff Blues team which will start against Glasgow Warriors on Saturday night at Scotstoun, 19:35 kick-off.

Both come in the forwards with Kris Dacey making his first start of the season at hooker, with Liam Belcher dropping to the bench after wearing the number two jersey for both games so far.

Then in the back row there is a switch as Will Boyde will make his first start for the Cardiff Blues, wearing number eight with Nick Williams also dropping to the bench after playing both games so far and picking up a torn bicep against Southern Kings.

Williams dropping out means the captaincy falls to Lloyd Williams, who jumped to outright second on the Cardiff Blues total appearances list with 196 last week, ahead of Gethin Jenkins.

Aside from that everyone retains their place in the team, looking to bounce back from a disappointing 11-19 loss at the hands of Edinburgh at the Arms Park last week.

Cardiff Blues: Matthew Morgan, Owen Lane, Garyn Smith, Willis Halaholo, Aled Summerhill, Jarrod Evans, Lloyd Williams (c); Brad Thyer, Kris Dacey, Dmitri Arhip, Seb Davies, Rory Thornton, Josh Turnbull, Will Boyde, Will Boyde

Replacements: Liam Belcher, Corey Domachowski, Scott Andrews, Shane Lewis-Hughes, Nick Williams, Lewis Jones, Jason Tovey, Harri Millard
