Lund returns for Leeds

Giant second rower Erik Lund will return to the starting line up for Leeds Carnegie for their crucial clash with Worcester this Sunday at Sixways, kick off 1pm.


Lund was a half time replacement for Jon Dunbar in last week’s loss to Bristol after the latter suffered an Achilles injury.

 

Kearnan Myall will start at blindside flanker in place of Dunbar, who will face a late fitness test before taking his place on the bench. Rhys Oakley will travel with the squad on standby should Dunbar fail his fitness test.

Prop Fosi Pala’amo is unavailable after picking up a calf injury so Adam Hopcroft is called onto the bench.


The Leeds team in full is:

15. Leigh Hinton
14. John Holtby
13. Jonny Hepworth
12. Andy Tuilagi
11. Tom Biggs
10. Alberto Di Bernardo
