Royal Navy makes late change for Irish match

The Royal Navy Senior XV will have a change in the centre as Marine Scott Llewellyn (Cdo Log Regt RM) has been withdrawn from the starting line up due to illness. His place at Outside Centre will be taken by Marine Rob Lloyd (42 Cdo RM), who moves up from Full Back, and experienced Navy player LAET Andy Vance (HMS Nelson) will drop back from the wing to play at Full Back. That leaves the way open for the return of exciting winger Logs (CS) Josh Drauniniu (HMNB Portsmouth) who will make his first appearance in a Navy shirt since the Babcock Commonwealth Cup back in October. The player selected to fill the vacant spot on the bench will be announced just prior to the match on Friday.

Royal Navy v Irish Defence Forces at Burnaby Road, Portsmouth. Friday 26 Feb kick off at 1930.
