HALFPENNY NAMED IN SQUAD

Cardiff Blues have named Leigh Halfpenny on the bench for their next game. The Wales wing has been out with an ankle injury since October, but back-row Xavier Rush (neck) is out despite completing a one-week suspension.

Centre Jamie Roberts makes his first start since surgery on a long-term wrist injury, replacing Tom Shanklin.

The Ospreys promote Andrew Bishop, Jamie Nutbrown, Paul James and Ian Gough to the starting line-up.

All four started on the bench in Monday’s 60-17 win over the Scarlets but get their turn to start at the Blues, with Nikki Walker, Mike Phillips and Ryan Jones dropping to the replacements.
