Glamorgan Wanderers make seven changes from the side defeated at Aberavon last Saturday for their Principality Premiership match with Cross Keys,
In the backs, the talented Charlie Johnson makes a welcome return after suffering a pre season injury. He plays on the wing instead of James Loxton who reverts to his normal position of full back.
Robin Locke, after scoring on his debut against Pontypool as a sub, starts at centre and he partners Gareth Morris. In the pack Richard Hodges introduces a complete change in the back-row.
Nio Aiono starts at blindside, Lee Highgate plays at 7 and Alistair McDonald starts at number 8 after some impressive performances in the Canterbury league. Tom Evans also gets his first start in the second row.
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
