Turnbull and Boyde return for visit of Ulster

Posted by

Cardiff Blues are able to welcome back Josh Turnbull and Will Boyde into the back row ahead of the Guinness Pro14 clash with Ulster at Rodney Parade on Monday night, 6pm kick-off.

Turnbull has not been available since getting sent off away at Zebre in round one, while Will Boyde makes his first appearance of the season having picked up a calf injury during pre-season.

They are the only two changes to the team that took the field against Munster last Monday, with Lewis Jones officially starting this week having been a late change after Lloyd Williams’ call-up to the Wales squad. Kris Dacey continues to captain.

There has been a slight reshuffle in the forwards with James Ratti moving back to the second row from blindside, while Ben Murphy and Olly Robinson drop to the bench.

Cardiff Blues: Matthew Morgan, Aled Summerhill, Rey Lee-Lo, Willis Halaholo, Hallam Amos, Jarrod Evans, Lewis Jones; Corey Domachowski, Kris Dacey, Dmitri Arhip, James Ratti, Rory Thornton, Josh Turnbull, James Botham, Will Boyde

Replacements: Ethan Lewis, Brad Thyer, Scott Andrews, Ben Murphy, Olly Robinson, Jamie Hill, Jason Tovey, Garyn Smith
