- Schubert leads an Eagles side that shows one change behind the scrum from the side that beat Romania to clinch third place in the Super Cup last weekend. Mike Rowe takes over from Mose Timoteo at scrum half to partner new Scarlets recruit Mike Hercus.
- In the pack, the highly experienced Alec Parker returns to the second row to join Brian Surgener, who also missed the Super Cup. Schubert continues in the back row with Andrew Ryland and Todd Clever.
