EPCR Challenge Cup winner Rey Lee-Lo will make his 150th appearance for Cardiff Rugby as they host Ulster Rugby in the United Rugby Championship (URC) on Saturday.
The Samoan centre has featured 35 times in the EPCR Challenge Cup for Cardiff, lifting the trophy in 2018.
Lee-Lo will be looking to help Cardiff take another step towards what would be their third title when they host Sale Sharks in the Round of 16 on April 2.
However, the focus remains on domestic rugby for now as Wales international props Rhys Carré and Dillon Lewis return for Saturday’s game at Cardiff Arms Park.
Elsewhere in the URC, Dragons RFC, who travel to Glasgow Warriors in the EPCR Challenge Cup Round of 16, have three Wales internationals returning as they welcome Connacht Rugby.
Prop Leon Brown, hooker Bradley Roberts and flanker Aaron Wainwright are all back for the Newport-based side.
