Rees returns for Blues

Wales international Richie Rees will begin his comeback after a 12-week ban on Saturday.

The Cardiff Blues scrum-half missed Wales' entire RBS 6 Nations campaign after being found guilty of making contact with the eye area of Northampton and England hooker Dylan Hartley during a Heineken Cup game just before Christmas.

Rees, who would have been a key part of Wales coach Warren Gatland's Six Nations plans, returns to the Blues starting line-up for their Magners League Welsh derby clash against the Ospreys in Swansea.
