Knights boss Clive Griffiths names a starting XV with four changes for tomorrow’s game versus Moseley from the side that suffered defeat to Bristol last weekend.
Teenage centre Rhys Williams will start at outside on dual-registration from Leicester Tigers. Williams was one of six Tigers players who were dual-registered with the Knights at the start of the season and joined the Castle Park side for training this week. Williams featured in the Knights pre-season schedule versus Tynedale and has already made senior appearances for the Tigers in the LV Cup.
Asides from the change at outside centre the back line is unchanged from last Friday.
In the pack there are a number of changes as Riccardo Brugnara returns to Castle Park from Welford road to accompany Ben Hunter and Colin Quigley in the front row. Tyler Hotson is back from international jersey to start at lock with Jon Phelan joining up with the Canucks. At number eight Alex Shaw makes his competitive return following a head injury suffered versus Cornish Pirates in the league with Michael Hills and Latu Makaafi on the flanks.
On the bench Richard List and Jack Bergmanas provide front row firepower with further forward cover from Glen Kenworthy and Phil Eggleshaw. Jamie Lennard and Jack Maplesden give Clive options at half-back and Stephen Hihetah will be hoping to make an impact from the bench, following an impressive debut versus Bristol last week.
