Four changes to Scarlets side for Ulster clash

Posted By RobertLloyd58

Scarlets have made four personnel changes to the starting XV to take on Ulster in their final game at Parc y Scarlets this season (Saturday, 15:05; Premier Sport).

Injuries have forced head coach Dwayne Peel to reshuffle his line-up for Saturday’s clash against his former team.

Tom Rogers picked up a knee injury against the Sharks and is set to miss the remainder of the season. Ryan Conbeer comes onto the left wing and Tomi Lewis switches to the right. The rest of the back division is unchanged.

There are three changes in the pack.

In the front row, Harri O’Connor gets the nod at tight-head prop and packs down alongside skipper Ryan Elias and Kemsley Mathias.

Sam Lousi is ruled out with a rib issue so Jac Price comes into the second row to partner his former Wales U20s team-mate Morgan Jones.

In the back row, a hamstring injury rules out Vaea Fifita, so Carwyn Tuipulotu, who made a big impact off the bench against the Sharks, starts at No. 8. Dan Davis and Taine Plumtree make up the rest of the breakaway trio.

On the bench, Wyn Jones, Jarrod Taylor and Ioan Lloyd return from injury to take their places in the match-day 23.

Head coach Dwayne Peel said: “Ulster are in the hunt for the play-offs and they will come here with that in mind so it is going to be a hard challenge. But we have steadily been improving; there was a good feeling at the end of the Sharks game and I thought we played some good stuff in that game. It is important we continue that momentum.”

At the end of Saturday’s match supporters will have the chance to say farewell to the players leaving the club at the end of the season with a special presentation on the pitch.
