Sharks' Director of Rugby Bryan Redpath said, "Andy Powell is back in the mix and gives us a huge, ball-carrying emphasis. We haven't gone for wholesale changes because we believe that these players need to rectify some of the issues from the Quins game. It's been disappointing to lose three games but we need to make sure that we don't over analyse or panic. We were in the game last weekend but didn't take some chances that could have led to pressure, if not a scoring opportunity. London Welsh present a massive challenge, one to which we're looking forward."
London Welsh Head Coach Lyn Jones makes just one enforced change, with former Sharks Michael Hills replacing the injured Mike Denbee at openside for what will be his first competitive appearance of the season.
