Captain Jacob Taylor returns from injury for his first run out of the 2014/15 season when he starts at full-back for the Blues on Tuesday night at Richmond. He takes the place of Ed Doe at full-back who shuffles sideways to the wing with Henry Hughes dropping to the bench to protect a thigh knock. Otherwise the backs remain unchanged from those who took the field against Henley last Tuesday. Up front, it is more of the same with just three changes – James Wisson comes in at hooker for Nick Gardner who rests a head knock, Graeme MacGilchrist and Fergus Taylor swap places in the starting XV and bench, while flanker Sam Peter replaces Gus Jones who is unavailable this week. With three wins from three the Blues will be looking to build upon their solid start to the season but they are under no illusions there are much tougher encounters to come form the three already played. There are once again twelve Blues in the starting XV with a further one on the bench, demonstrating the strength in depth of this year’s squad. Kick off on Tuesday night is 7.45pm with the bars open from 6.00pm, we hope you can join the squad as they look to continue their winning ways.
