Lee-Lo adds experienced to another mix-and-match Cardiff side

Posted by

Rey Lee-Lo is straight back into the Cardiff starting XV for this weekend’s Heineken Champions Cup trip to Harlequins after being declared free to play following a suspension.

The Samoan was shown a red card in the derby win over the Dragons at the Arms Park at the end of October, but after completing a tackle safety course and it being deemed that postponed games counted towards the suspension he goes straight back into the Blue and Blacks midfield alongside Willis Halaholo.

Lee-Lo is one of four changes to the side that took the field against Toulouse last week as Evan Yardley moves up to start at hooker with Iestyn Harris injured, Sam Moore starting at number eight and James Botham moving around to flanker with Olly Robinson isolating, and Dan Fish moving up to fly-half with Cameron Winnett making his debut at full-back after Jason Tovey was ruled out.

On the bench Rags hooker Alun Rees will play back up to Yardley, Academy prop Nathan Evans covers the loosehead after Joe Cowell opted to play for Cardiff Met in midweek, Alex Mann could make his debut as back row cover, and Ryan Wilkins is another possible debutant as an outside back.

Cardiff: Cameron Winnett, Theo Cabango, Rey Lee-Lo, Willis Halaholo, Josh Adams, Dan Fish, Tomos Williams; Rowan Jenkins, Evan Yardley, Will Davies-King, Alun Lawrence, Seb Davies, Ellis Jenkins (c), James Botham, Sam Moore

Replacements: Alun Rees, Nathan Evans, Geraint James, Rhys Anstey, Alex Mann, Ethan Lloyd, Ioan Evans, Ryan Wilkins
