Opposition in Focus
Doncaster come into this fixture with London Scottish off the back of a heavy defeat to Coventry on the road. No doubt the northern-based side will be hurting and keen to put that result right so London Scottish can expect a big reaction this weekend.
The two sides met just under a month ago in the Championship Cup at the RAG. Doncaster ran out 12-24 winners that evening in what was commented on by both DORs as a bruising encounter. Both sides are expecting much of the same on Saturday as they look to go to battle once again.
London Scottish News
This week London Scottish will be without Hayden Hyde and Jordan Els as they form part of the wider travelling group to South Africa with Harlequins. However, Jamie Drummond is in line to make his first appearance for London Scottish having arrived from Glasgow Warriors last week.
Off the back of an important win against Caldy, Bryan Redpath has stressed the need for consistency and to keep the momentum up going into what will be a tough fixture in the north of England.
