|North Midlands have been forced to make five changes for their second match in this season’s County Championship Bill Beaumont Cup First Division against Hertfordshire at Old Albanians tomorrow (May 17).Luctonians wing Adam Knight (groin) and Coventry flanker Matt Tibbatts (hip) both suffered injuries in last week’s defeat by Cornwall at Redruth, Luctonians prop Anthony Marfell is unavailable because of work commitments and Birmingham & Solihull lock Chris Goddard and Moseley Oak flanker Charley Thomas are both away this weekend.
Stourbridge full-back Tom Jarvis comes into a re-jigged back division with his club-mate Stefan Shillingford and Coventry’s Callum MacBurnie forming a new centre pairing. Bromsgrove’s Scott Smith switches from centre to wing to replace Knight.
Birmingham & Solihull’s Stefan Thorp takes Marfell’s place with Dudley Kingswinford’s Ed Parry and Stourbridge’s Will Crane also called up in the pack.
Stourbridge hooker Dale Garner, who missed the Cornwall trip because his wife was due to give birth, is available this week and has been named among the replacements.
North Midlands play their final group match against Gloucestershire at Bromsgrove on May 24 (3pm).
