Cavaliers forced to reshuffle

Cavaliers have been forced to reshuffle their side for Sunday’s Premiership Rugby Shield match against Sale Jets at Heywood Road (kick-off 2.30pm).

Darren Barry’s inclusion in Warriors’ matchday squad for the Gallagher Premiership match at Saracens as cover for the ill Michael Fatialofa has had a knock-on effect for Cavaliers.

Andrew Kitchener will move from the blindside flank to partner James Scott in the second row with Josh Poole of Birmingham Moseley coming into the back row.

Birmingham & Solihull lock Harry Barnes will come into the squad as a replacement as one of six guest players.
