Cross Keys will be playing for pride in the British & Irish Cup when they take on Connacht on Saturday.
Last year's beaten finalists have failed to recreate their form in the competition so far this season, slipping to defeats to Newcastle and Newport so far this season. As a result, they are now unable to qualify for the quarter finals.
Greg Woods names a strong side for tomorrow's clash despite their situation in the pool.
Keys back Luke Ford returns in the centre following a few weeks out with a shoulder injury whilst exciting young prospect Scott Matthews is given a rare start at open side with skipper Rob Nash rested on the bench.
Dorian Jones again starts on the wing for Keys with Kristian Baller being troubled by a hamstring problem. Also set to return after a spell on the sidelines through injury is prop James Johnstone who is named on the bench.
Cross Keys: 15 Gareth David 14 Dorian Jones 13 Leon Andrews 12 Luke Ford 11 Luke Williams 10 Steffan Jones 9 Ryan James, (c)1 Richard Cornock 2 Gerwyn Price 3 Anthony Lott 4 Danny Hodge 5 Ollie Hodge 6 Tom Lampard 7 Scott Matthews 8 Adam Powell.
Replacements: James Johnstone, Garry Horrigan, Craig Gould, Sean Higgins, Rob Nash, Rhys Dyer, Dean Gunter.
