GEORGE North returns to the Scarlets side when they take on Clermont Auvergne in their Heineken Cup pool finale on Saturday night.

The Wales star is back in the starting line-up just two weeks after being stretchered off with a neck injury against Ulster.

North is one of five changes to the side that took the field against Leinster in Dublin last weekend.

Centre Adam Warren is handed his first European start alongside Jonathan Davies in midfield, while up front Samson Lee replaces Jacobie Adriaanse at tight-head prop.

Joe Snyman comes in for Richard Kelly at lock, while Sione Timani, after his bruising display at the RDS, continues at blindside in an unchanged back row. Aaron Shingler returns to the bench after recovering from a groin problem.

Scarlets: Liam Williams; G. North, J. Davies, A. Warren, K. Phillips; A. Thomas, T. Knoyle; P. John, K. Owens, S. Lee, G. Earle, J. Snyman, S. Timani, R. McCusker (capt), J. Turnbull. Reps: M. Rees, R. Jones, J. Adriaanse, R. Kelly, A. Shingler, G. Davies, G. Maule, A. Fenby.

Clermont: L. Byrne; J. Malzieu, A. Rougerie (capt), B. Stanley, N. Nalaga; D. Skrela, M. Parra; R. Chaume, B. Kayser, D. Zirakashvili, J. Cudmore, N. Hines, J. Bonnaire, E. Vermeulen, A. Lapandry. Reps: T. Paulo, V. Debaty, D. Kotze, J. Pierre, D. Chouly, L. Radosavljevic, K. Senio, R. King.
