Lee-Lo returns as Cardiff Blues search for elusive win

Posted by

John Mulvihill has made three changes to the Cardiff Blues starting XV that is searching for a first win in three games at home to Munster on Saturday night, 7.35pm kick-off.

The notable change comes at centre where Rey Lee-Lo returns to action after being at the Rugby World Cup with Samoa, pairing up with Garyn Smith who shifts to inside centre as Willis Halaholo drops to the bench.

The other changes are in the pack where Corey Domachowski will make his first Cardiff Blues start since the 24th November 2017 at loosehead, as Brad Thyer drops to the bench, while Shane Lewis-Hughes will make his first start of the season at blindside flanker as Will Boyde reverts to number eight.

Nick Williams drops to the bench to make room in the starting XV, where he is joined by Kirby Myhill who will cover hooker in place of Kris Dacey.

Lloyd Williams captains the team on what will be his 199th Cardiff Blues appearance.

Cardiff Blues: Matthew Morgan, Jason Harries, Rey Lee-Lo, Garyn Smith, Aled Summerhill, Jarrod Evans, Lloyd Williams (c); Corey Domachowski, Liam Belcher, Scott Andrews, Josh Turnbull, Rory Thornton, Shane Lewis-Hughes, Olly Robinson, Will Boyde

Replacements: Kirby Myhill, Brad Thyer, Keiron Assiratti, Seb Davies, Nick Williams, Lewis Jones, Jason Tovey, Willis Halaholo
