The students make seven changes from the team that started against the Irish. Tal Selley (Llanelli) comes in to the centre and Gareth Chapman (UWIC) returns from Welsh Sevens duty to replace Paul Bamsey (Aberavon), who reverts to Full Back.
Jonathan Hooper (Merthyr) starts the game at Scrum Half and Llyr Lane (Newport) reverts to the bench.
With Michael Owen's selection for the 'A' Team, Alex Davidson (Gloucester) steps in from the U'21s squad to take his place.
One injury problem, in the Back Row where skipper Paul Williams (Ebbw Vale) is ruled out after sustaining an injury in the game against Llanelli last Friday.
Mike Buckingham (Whitland) moves over to the open side and Karl Hocking (Tondu) comes in on the blind side.
If last year's game in France was anything to go by, then this game at Neath should be a cracker.
