Leeds Carnegie coach Diccon Edwards has made five changes to his starting line-up for the trip to Pontypridd in the British and Irish Cup.

Edwards hands full debuts to Alex Lozowski, Matt Clark and Pierce Phillips, the latter pair came off the bench last week for their first appearances for the club, whilst James Tyson could make his debut off the bench.

Clark replaces former Castleford Tigers three-quarter Josh Griffin in the starting line-up with former Chelsea youth footballer Lozowski, an Economics student at the University of Leeds, replacing Joe Ford in the team.

He starts at full-back with Christian Georgiou moving to fly-half.

In the pack Lee Imiolek comes in for Ben Harris and Phil Nilsen swaps places with Joe Graham to start at Sardis Road.

Finally, Ryan Burrows is replaced by Chemistry student Phillips, who starts in the second row allowing Dominic Barrow to move to the back row.

Leeds Carnegie: Lozowski, Wilson, Goss, Clark, Chisholm, Georgiou, Hampson, Imiolek, Nilsen, Hooper, Phillips, Smith, Barrow, Baldwin, Walker. Reps: Graham, Harris, Tussac, Rowan, Tyson, Doherty, Burdon.
