Battle of the Exiles – Episode IV

30th March 2014

London Scottish and London Welsh renew their epic rivalry on Sunday, March 30th, 2pm kick-off, at Richmond Athletic Ground – the fourth instalment of the season following three previously thrilling encounters.

Scottish lead the head-to-head 2-1 so far but the current aggregate scoreline of 63-52 in favour of the Scots shows just how tight the matches have been this season.

More than 2,500 fans created a brilliant atmosphere during January’s B&I Cup clash between the sides and we are expecting similar numbers when the club’s meet for a fourth time on Sunday, March 30th.

As it's Mother's Day we are letting all ladies in for free (Clan, standing tickets)!

Ladies simply have to turn up on the day and pick up their free tickets on the gate for this Greene King IPA Championship clash.

Men can also take advantage of our 2 for £25 online deal (Clan, standing tickets). Click here to book now.

Under-16s as always get in for free, so it really is an unbeatable family day out.

There will be plenty of entertainment and activity off the pitch for the whole family to enjoy and 500 noise sticks are set to be handed out in the ground which will add to the occasion.

Spire Healthcare will be unveiled as official sponsors of the London Scottish Academy, and ladies can enjoy some health and beauty treatment in their Gazebo by the side of the pitch.

A pipe band will be on site once again and Championship title sponsors Greene King IPA are running a kicking competition for London Scottish fans at half-time.

All kickers will win their height in Greene King IPA beer and the first three successful kickers will win their way to Twickenham to represent London Scottish in a touch rugby tournament on Sunday May 18th.

If you are 18 or over and interested in taking part in the kicking competition, please email,

Community Development Officer Ross Peacock is also leading a coaching session with pupils from Sherfield School before the kids form a guard of honour as the teams run-out.
