Strong Cardiff team named for Munster clash

Posted by

Cardiff Blues director of rugby Dai Young has named the strongest available side to him as the Blue and Blacks travel to Munster in the Rainbow Cup on Friday night, 7.35pm.

There are two changes to the starting XV that beat Scarlets last time out as Corey Domachowski is fully fit to start at loosehead, while James Botham is back at openside flanker having been sidelined by a calf problem in recent weeks.

Josh Turnbull captains the side and goes third on the Guinness Pro14 all-time appearances list above Edinburgh and Scotland hooker Ross Ford, while Josh Adams starts what could well be his final game before heading off for the British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa.

On the bench, Rhys Carre and Olly Robinson both drop down from the starting XV, while Matthew Morgan is named as one of the backs cover but still has a late fitness test to pass in order to be involved.

Cardiff Blues: Hallam Amos, Jason Harries, Uilisi Halaholo, Ben Thomas, Josh Adams, Jarrod Evans, Tomos Williams; Corey Domachowski, Kris Dacey, Dillon Lewis, Seb Davies, Cory Hill, Josh Turnbull (c), James Botham, James Ratti

Replacements: Liam Belcher, Rhys Carre, Dmitri Arhip, Rory Thornton, Olly Robinson, Lloyd Williams, Matthew Morgan, Harri Millard
