Phil Godman is one of three casualties from the defeat by Scotland in the opening RBS 6 Nations match against France. The new Blues signing Dan Parks was recalled at fly-half for Saturday’s trip to Wales.
Parks’ return was one of three changes from Sunday’s 18-9 loss at Murrayfield, with prop star Euan Murray and back-three man Rory Lamont also back in the starting XV.
Lamont was named on the left wing, with brother Sean surprisingly moved to outside centre in place of Max Evans.
