Yamayawa returns for Doncaster derby trip

Yamayawa returns for Doncaster derby trip

Winger Sam Yawayawa is the only addition to Nottingham Rugby's starting XV for Saturday's Greene King IPA Championship, the local derby clash at Castle Park against Doncaster Knights (2:30pm kick-off).

With fullback Billy Robinson unavailable after picking up an injury in last weekend's home defeat to London Irish, head coach Ian Costello has chosen to move James Stephenson from the right wing into the Green and Whites' #15 jersey, with dual-registered Leicester Tiger Yawayawa coming in at the right side of the backline.

Four changes have been made on a strong-looking bench with prop Kieran Davies and lock Tom Holmes having both recovered from recent injuries to feature amongst the replacements, alongside Worcester dual-reg prop Derrick Appiah and scrum half Darryl Veenendaal.

Nottingham will be looking for revenge over a Knights team which won both league encounters between the two sides last season.

Team to face Doncaster Knights: 15) James Stephenson, 14) Sam Yawayawa, 13) Oli Evans, 12) Vili Hakalo, 11) Calum Hall, 10) Lawrence Rayner, 9) Murray McConnell, 1) Tom West, 2) Jimmy Stevens, 3) Tom Heard, 4) Toby Freeman, 5) Ben Morris (C), 6) Rob Langley, 7) Jordan Coghlan, 8) Josh Poullet. Replacements: 16) TJ Harris, 17) Kieran Davies, 18) Derrick Appiah, 19) Tom Holmes, 20) Matt Everard, 21) Darryl Veenendaal, 22) Will Millett.
