The second of Cardiff’s 2021 British & Irish Lions contingent will return on Saturday night as Josh Navidi starts against the Bulls at the Arms Park, 7.35pm kick-off.
He is one of five changes to the starting XV that lost away at Ospreys last weekend as Dmitri Arhip and Dillon Lewis swap places at tighthead, while Will Boyde starts at openside flanker as Ellis Jenkins misses out altogether. Josh Turnbull moves to the replacements with Navidi starting as Kirby Myhill captains the side.
In the backs Lloyd and Tomos Williams swap again at scrum-half while Ben Thomas makes a first start of the season at inside centre with Willis Halaholo making an impact later in the game.
Kris Dacey is the replacement hooker having stepped in late last week when Liam Belcher withdrew through injury.
