Cardiff U18s have made seven changes to the starting XV as the Blue and Blacks look to go through the three-team series with Dragons U18 and Scarlets U18 unbeaten against the former at The Wern on Monday night.

Chad Powell gets a first start at scrum-half, while Louie Henneseey-Booth is back in midfield as Zak Fifield and Harrison James take a seat on the bench, and Amir Saleh replaces Ty Lewis on the left wing.
