BenRoach7s

Cardiff Blues have made five changes for the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series Finals on Sunday.

Wales’ Capital Region qualified for the Ricoh Arena finale thanks to a Group A clean sweep at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park last month.
 
But they will be without a host of their young stars who are now with Wales Under-18s and depart for South Africa early next week.
 
Richard Hodges has bolstered his squad with Ethan Davies, who joins fellow Wales 7s core members Adam Thomas, Ben Roach and Owen Jenkins.
 
Ceri Young, who was player of the tournament in the recent Cardiff and District 7s, adds to the region’s wing options.
 
Academy prospect Morgan Sienawski replaces James Botham, while there are also places for invitational stars Johnny Lewis and Aron Wyn Evans.
 
Hodges will once again lead the squad and is joined by skills coach Paul John, who has an abundance of experience from Wales 7s.
 
Rugby General Manager Billy Millard will act as team manager on the day in Coventry, bringing his five years of experience as Australia 7s head coach to the role.
 
Cardiff Blues 7s squad:
 
1 – Adam Thomas (capt)
2 – Ben Roach
3 – Morgan Sienawski
4 – Luke Crocker
5- Joe Tomlinson
6- Ceri Young
7 – Owen Jenkins
8 – James Beale
9 – Johnny Lewis
10 – Ethan Davies
11 – Aron Wyn Evans
12 – Declan Williams
 
Eight teams will play for the first silverware of the season in the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series Finals from 2pm at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on Sunday 7 August. For tickets visit wasps.co.uk/tickets
