Coach Dai Young has named all three former Celtic Warriors in his 26-man squad for the pre-season friendly including ex-Tiger Freddie Tuilagi who returns to Welford Road following his summer transfer to the Blues.
Young said: 'If all goes to plan we will be giving some game time to newcomers like Rob, Deiniol and Gethin and it also looks as if Gareth Williams, Robin Sowden-Taylor and Jamie Robinson will also feature, subject to late fitness tests.
'The Tigers have named a strong side and we aim to be very competitive in what will be a real test for us ahead of the start of the Celtic League next week.'
This will be Cardiff's second pre-season journey to England following their 12-10 defeat to Zurich Premiership newboys Worcester before kicking off their domestic campaign at Leinster September 5,
Blues' squad: (backs): C Morgan, M Nuthall; J Vaughton, N Walne, F Tuilagi; J Robinson, S James, T Davies; N Macleod, L Thomas; R Smith, D Dewdney; (Forwards): J Yapp, K Fourie, A Lewis, G Williams, B Evans, G Jenkins, C Quinnell, D Jones, R Sidoli, J Goode, M Lewis, K Schubert, N Thomas, R Sowden-Taylor.
