Team Line-up: Coventry (A)

As we prepare to travel to the West-Midlands, here’s the team that will be running out on to the field at the Butts Park Arena tomorrow (KO 3pm).

There are six changes to the side that won at Trailfinders Sports Club against Hartpury last weekend. The first of them comes up front as Shaun Malton comes in at hooker, in between Kyle Whyte and Lewis Thiede.

Bobby De Wee keeps his spot in the second-row after his Team of the Week performance last weekend and is partnered by Simon Linsell, who makes his first start for the season.

With an impressive performance off the bench last weekend, including his 50m leg-drive, Simon Uzokwe comes in on the open-side while Rob Farrar continues on the blindside. Rayn Smid also returns to the starting side and will skipper the squad from number 8.

There is a change in the number ten shirt, as Craig Willis has recovered from injury and comes in at fly-half to partner Craig Hampson.

In the midfield, Reuben Bird-Tulloch and Max Bodilly reunite, while Luke Daniels, David Johnston and Jonah Holmes come together to make a devastating back-three.

Among the replacements are four of the five try scorers from last weekend; Cam Terry, Jimmy Roots, Jordan Burns and Carlo Tizzano.
