Immelman, signed in the summer from Montpellier, made a promising start to his Edinburgh career before being sidelined by his injury. He will be joined in the back three by Emiliano Boffelli and Ramiro Moyano.

Darcy Graham is unavailable for the match at the DAM Health Stadium as the capital side return to action for the first time since the win over Saracens in the European Challenge Cup four weeks ago.

Another summer signing, lock Glen Young, is on the bench and could make his Edinburgh debut.

Edinburgh, who saw both 1872 Cup matches against Glasgow postponed due to Covid cases in the Warriors squad, are looking to go top of the United Rugby Championship.

The match against Cardiff will be spectator-free due to Scottish Government restrictions.

Head coach Mike Blair, said: “The squad are obviously champing at the bit to play competitive rugby after a number of weeks without fixtures and that has certainly shown in training this week, with guys putting their hand up for selection across the board.”
