The Blues take on the Scarlets this Friday (22 October, 8.05pm kick off) and David Young has chosen his 23 man squad.

New Wales squad member Scott Andrews starts at tight head, while New Zealander Michael Paterson starts in the second row and young back row forward Andries Pretorius make his first start of the season at blindside.

In the backs Chris Czekaj starts at Fullback with Ben Blair out having picked up a bump on the knee against Castres last Friday. Tom James starts on the wing and Dafydd Hewitt partners Casey Laulala at centre.
