Rhys Priestland will play Cardiff for the first time on Friday evening (7:15 PM) when Rhys Priestland makes their debut against his former club Bath at Arms Park (Cardiff). In Saturday’s clash between The Stoop and Harlequins, he made his debut as a substitute in the second half and showed good performance in a 25-minute cameo.

Now wearing the No. 10 jersey on a familiar face, he has spent the past six years in Bath before returning to the other side of the bridge this summer. This will be his early chance for Wayne Pivac to recall Wales from the international campaign this fall. It has been almost four years since he won the last of the 50 matches and he is now 34 years old.
But he clearly has an admirer in Pivac, and would love to include him in his Six Nations line-up in January, but was prevented from doing so under the WRU 60 cap rule, even though the former Scarlet organizer had agreed to join Cardiff.
Priestland is now eligible to compete in New Zealand’s opening round in the fall.
England duo Dan Biggar and Callum Sheedy were unable to participate in that match as it fell outside the official testing period, and half players Gareth Anscombe and Rhys Patchell have not resumed the match after a long-term injury.
Jarrod Evans wore the number 10 jersey during the final test in Wales. That match was lost at home to Argentina in July.
He did not play in Cardiff this weekend and his return will be revealed in two weeks at the United Rugby Championship opening ceremony with Connaught.
At the same time, Priestland has the ability to grab attention by showing the astute game management and creativity that makes him so stable in the team he now leads.
His addition was one of 11 personnel changes against English champions Harlequins. Cardiff led 26-7 at halftime but eventually lost the game 45-33.
Who switched from locked position to 8th position? The four survivors are winger Jason Harries, second row Rory Thornton, center Max Llewellyn, and versatile James Ratti.
Welsh summer internationals Owen Lane and Josh Turnbull joined the Priestland squad, with Turnbull captaining the blindside.
Post-rower Will Boyde who has been absent since suffering a serious facial injury in last November’s game against Edinburgh is also making a gratifying return.
There are many good players on the bench, international players Rhys Carre, Dillon Lewis, Shane Lewis-Hughes, Ellis Jenkins, Willis Halaholo, and Matthew Morgan are ready to join the fight.
