Leeds Carnegie head coach James Lowes has made seven changes to his side to face Plymouth Albion at Headingley Carnegie today (3pm).

The two sides met last Friday in a British & Irish Cup quarter-final but nearly half the home side is changed for this Greene King IPA Championship game.

Fred Burdon returns from injury at centre, while Christian Georgiou and Glyn Hughes, who both came off the bench last week, are in the starting line-up.

In the forwards, James Currie starts at tight-head prop in place of youngster Paul Hill, while Mike Myerscough comes into the second row to partner Richard Beck for Harry Casson.

In the back row, captain Jacob Rowan returns, along with Ryan Burrows, who has missed the last two games.

On the bench, second-rower Calum Green, who will join Newcastle Falcons next season, will make his first appearance since Christmas after recovering from injury.

Leeds Carnegie: Alex Lozowski; Jonah Holmes, Rob Vickerman, Fred Burdon, Christian Georgiou; Glyn Hughes, Craig Hampson; Charlie Beech, Joe Graham, James Currie, Richard Beck, Mike Myerscough, Jacob Rowan, Ryan Burrows, Chris Walker. Replacements: Phil Nilsen, Lee Imiolek, Ben Hooper, Calum Green, David Sisi, Jonny Bentley, Jack Walker.
