North Midlands have made seven changes to their starting line-up for their trip to Rugby Lions to face Warwickshire in the County Championship Division Two South tomorrow (3pm).
North Midlands were trounced 62-13 by Hampshire in their opening match at Dudley Kingswinford while Warwickshire also suffered a heavy defeat against Somerset.
Injuries and unavailability have meant a busy week for the North Midlands selectors who have brought Worcester academy player Callum Jones off the bench into the starting line-up and called up Cael Hodgson, Tom Johnson and George Morgan into a much-changed three-quarters line.
The front row, an area of strength against Hampshire remains unchanged, but Steve Price comes into the second row and Gino Belmonte and Aiden Cheshire into the back row.
North Midlands complete their group programme against Somerset at Dudley Kingswinford on May 20.
