Leeds Carnegie Head Coach James Lowes has named a strong side for this Saturday's round five British and Irish Cup game at Gala.
Leeds will be without Calum Green and Stevie McColl, who were both ruled out this week through surgery, however skipper Jacob Rowan and Joe Graham return after missing last week's win at Plymouth through concussion.
New signings Jon Clarke and Harry Casson, on loan from Aviva Premiership side Worcester Warriors, will make their first starts for the club whilst prop Charlie Beech, who is on loan from Bath, is named in a new look front row.
The full team can be found here.
Leeds Carnegie have announced they have signed 22-year-old second row Harry Casson from Aviva Premiership side Worcester on loan for the remainder of the season.
Casson has joined the club with immediate effect and could make his debut this Saturday for the trip to Plymouth Albion. Originally from Bristol, he joined Gloucester's Academy whilst studying at Hartpury College, making one senior appearance for the Cherry and Whites before going to University.
After graduating he joined Worcester and has spent time on loan at Coventry and Cinderford.
Diccon Edwards has resigned as coach of rugby union side Leeds Carnegie. The 40 year old has been in charge at the Championship club for just over 2 years and guided them to a play-off semi final last season. Leeds Rugby Chief Executive Gary Hetherington says it's come as a big surprise.
Leeds Carnegie take a 5 point lead to promotion favourites Newcastle Falcons in the second leg of Rugby Union's Championship play-off semi-finals. The winners will play either Bedford or Nottingham for a place back in the Aviva Premiership. Coach Diccon Edwards has been speaking to Calendar.
