Burdon set to start for visit of Bedford

Centre Fred Burdon will make his first league appearance for Yorkshire Carnegie since the second leg of the play off defeat to London Welsh two years ago when Bryan Redpath's side host promotion rivals Bedford Blues this Sunday.

Burdon returned to action a fortnight ago in the British & Irish Cup quarter final win over Moseley having torn both Achilles in the last eighteen months. Burdon is joined in the centres by Pete Lucock with Tom Casson and Andy Forsyth both ruled out through injury.

Mike Myerscough comes in for Dean Schofield in the second row for his first appearance since suffering Appendicitis last month. Richard Beck is back in the back row after missing last week's game through illness.

Yorkshire Carnegie are also currently without Seb Stegmann (quad), Jack Walker (ankle), Christian Georgiou (shoulder) and Josh Bainbridge (foot).
