Team to take on Cardiff

Llanelli return to Parc y Scarlets on Friday night looking to secure a second victory in the Indigo Group Welsh Premiership.

The town side, welcoming Cardiff RFC to the Parc under the Friday night lights, welcome a number of Scarlets’ young players to the team.

Captain Nathan Hart leads a much-changed side from the one that suffered defeat to Ebbw Vale last week.

In the pack Scarlets’ Shaun Evans, Jac Price and Dan Davis join brothers Sam and Harri O’Connor, second row Chris Long and back rowers Ellis Thomas and captain Hart.

Joe Roberts and Corey Baldwin line up in midfield with Wales Under 20s scrum half Harri Williams retaining his place.

Josh Phillips, Liam Hutchings, Amir Jiwa-Walji and Josh Hathaway complete the starting line-up.

Llanelli are currently in eighth position in the Premiership table with Cardiff in third. A number of teams, including Llanelli, have games in hand due to Covid and storm related postponements.
