Cardiff U17s ring the changes for second Dragons clash

Posted by

Cardiff U17 head coach Chadd Matuyambizi has made a number of changes to his side for Wednesday’s second clash of the mini-series, this time against Dragons U17 Red.

After an eight-try 17-48 win over Dragons U17 Black at Ystrad Mynach last week, there are nine alterations to the starting XV, with an all-new tight five in place as Oscar Walker, Gavin Parry and Cam Tyler-Grocott pack down in the front row and Fletcher Barry moves up from number eight to partner Kyle Harris at lock.

Evan Prosser and Dylan Yarwood start at flanker, while Owen Conquer moves around to number eight.

In the backs, Dan Buffery is in at scrum-half alongside Harri Wilde who remains at fly-half alongside the unaltered centre duo of Ethan Rudyj and Gethin Jones.

The back three sees Ben Geraghty remain on one wing, joined by Dan Nzamba opposite him and Tom Bowen at full-back.

Max Bignell, Dafydd Jones, Ethan Gardner, Scott Delnevo, Eamonn Rogers, Dan Williams and Steffan Emanuel will all make their first Cardiff U17 appearances if brought on.
