Sam Arnold (23) and Dan Goggin (21) made up a youthful centre pairing in Saturday’s win over Glasgow. The duo will need to continue to work on their chemistry following the recent injury to Irish International Chris Farrell.
Bleyendaal says that he had already built up a connection with the midfield men by being paired with them in training.
“Often we’re the combination training against the guys every second week so it felt seamless. I’m really happy with the them, two young guys going out there and they give it everything. We connected really well, they’ve got great potential.”
