Leeds Carnegie stalwart Phil Nilsen will skipper them for their tricky trip to Plymouth Albion tomorrow  in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Hooker Nilsen, who has made 113 appearances for the club in all competitions and coaches Bradford Salem, is awarded the captain’s armband with Jacob Rowan sidelined by concussion following an incident in last Saturday’s televised win over Nottingham at Headingley.

His place in the back row is taken Shaun Jones.

Other changes are Josh Griffin on the wing, Rob Vickerman in the centre and Mike Myerscough in the second row.
